Pours a black body whose tan head has excellent retention. Aromas of dark chocolate and lots of roastiness, with hints of wet coffee grounds and smokiness. Taste is sweet and cocoa-like up front, with darker flavors like roasted coffee beans and baker's chocolate dominating the mid- and back-palates. Overall very good.

Very toasty coffee-like tasting beer. Hints of chocolate, and a malty taste. Dark brown to black in color with a light head. Nicely carbonated for a crisp feel. I like it

Poured from a bottle dated 12/8/14 into a hotel room water glass. The liquid is a dark mahogany with hints of amber, and the pour kicks up a small head that dissipates to a film within a few minutes.

Aroma is dark chocolate, licorice, roasted barley, and a slightly weird lactic tartness.

Flavor is chocolate and licorice backed by a nice grassy hop kick. Finish is nice and roasty and moderately bitter. Aftertaste is really pleasantly hoppy without sacrificing the chocolate and roastiness.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied with a moderate to high amount of soft carbonation, and is super creamy.

Overall, really nice stout that balances the licorice and roast flavors with a great hop flavor. Really impressively balanced.

Dark, dark rubyish color, kinda looks like a really dark coke color. Pours a dense tan head, that dissipates quickly. Smells of roasted malts. Tastes chocolatey and coffee like. Has somewhat of a medium creamy mouth feel. It kinda feels a bit more like a porter than a stout. regardless it is one tasty beer.

Not sure if this should be considered a stout? Thick head, not super dark in color, very thin. I rated it as such.

Smelled alike a stout but was light to the point were it almost was a porter or a black lager. Tasted fine but just not much to it.

Kinda glad its just a single. Not a drain pour by any means, just kinda a boring low abv stout. I am not saying low abv stouts are bad. There are just much better stouts in this abv range.
