Pitch black. Thin brown foamy head. Retention and lacing small. Slight roasted with chocolate aroma. Watered down aroma and taste. Malty taste with more chocolate. Slight bitterness. Decent and drinkable.

Pleasant enough, drinkable beer. Not especially dark, thin body, not a whole lot going on other than dark roasted malt. Nice flavor but nothing really special. Also seems a bit over-carbonated to me.

Pours a dark brown with tan head. Roasted malt is foremost on the nose, with a little chocolate and a hint of coffee; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more roasted flavors.

It's a nice stout but a tad on the light side for my taste. The head is weak at best and dissipates rapidly. It has a hint of coffee and chocolate that is not over whelming. It pours dark chocolate brown with a slight amber hew. It has a lighter then average feel for a stout with a smooth light roast malty finish. It may be much improved with a nitro poor on tap. However, I have only partaken in the bottled version.

Finish was uninspiring. Smell was ok, flavor was so-so. I found the Mouthfeel to be barely adequate for a stout.
Maybe I've had too many BA Imperial Stouts lately.

The new mobile format is making me justify my rating with a review. This was a surprising disappointment coming from St. Arnold. Thin mouthfeel, bitter throughout. I've tried three of these and didn't finish any of them.
