Pours a beautiful opaque brownish black with a thick tan head. Smells faintly of malt. Slightly sweet but overwhelmingly bitter and somewhat lacking in body. No discernible pretzel flavor. Disappointing.

$ 2.70 (Including tax)/16 oz can ($ 0.169/oz) at Total Wine, SATX
Undated can at 42 degrees into a hand washed and dried JK snifter
Aroma – roasted malt
Head large (Maximum 6.2 cm, aggressive pour), light brown, frothy, rapidly diminishing to a five mm frothy ring and thin partial layer
Lacing - none
Body – dark brown/black, opaque
Flavor – roasted malt with maybe, possibly, just might be a hint of pretzel. Ends with a slightly burnt taste with a long hang time. No hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate – medium to full, bordering on syrupy, soft carbonation

A passable stout, but not exceptional. Price point makes it something I’d buy again.
