had out of the bottle and it is truly an interesting stout. it is lighter than most. clean taste with a sweetness in the finish. very clean aftertaste and the mouth feel is also a bit unique. there is a bit of a sting or bite that is actually quite nice. this beer definitely exceeded my expectations.

A brew that is dominated by coffee and chocolate malts...this is a decent stout but there is nothing that separates this from thousands of others that taste exactly the same.

It pours a dark brown and leaves a foamy off white head. Minimal lacing occurs and spider webs apart. The smell is roasty between coffee and chocolate notes. The taste.takes those flavorings to make it sweet. The palate is about a medium to heavy with nothing harsh on the tongue, slightly sof and creamy. Id say its fairly drinkable. Overall, this is a good standard American stout that I would gladly come back to.

Pours a pitch black color with a finger of khaki head. The head has little retention, leaving nothing in the way of lacing before settling into a thin, bubbly halo.

The aroma is all roasted malts with a hint of vanilla cola and black licorice. Odd but pleasant.

The flavor brings notes of roasted pecans and almonds, followed by tootsie rolls and licorice. Finishes with a faint touch of hops. I should hate this but I don't. It's pretty good, actually.

The feel is medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Very creamy and smooth. No alcohol presence.

Overall, a pretty good and very interesting stout. It's a bit too sweet, but never cloying, and it has a nice creamy body, like your mom.

Damn, wasn't planning on writing a review but this warrants it...

Looks great, pitch black, cappuccino foam froth with bitch black.

Smells like Diet Pepsi?

Taste... SWEET! Coffee, Chocolate, Cola... damn that's fun, what a balance.

Short but sweet review... good stuff
