Of course, since I loved the beer, they had to go ahead and discontinue it.

Easily my favorite Sam's barring Fezziwig but I'm not willing to buy a variety pack of other brews I don't care for just to obtain this one. Shame it's not distributed on its own as they'd have more sales, similar deal with the classic Fezziwig.

So as for the look, it's a basic Run of the mill SA design. However, the bull kinds bring' you in if your country. The problem I had was it was not creamy as much as it was Smooth, Creamy to me means that it will have a lasting Coating in my mouth. This beer failed to deliver on that suggestion, The small was hoppy but not too overpowering. It was thick but not black. I was looking for a darker blend there is a few other beers that deliver that black 10 times coffee looks and have a much better taste, Don't get me wrong it was a nice bouquet of flavors, and it sure did hit the spot. I had it with an old Chicago pizza and some wings. And it was perfectly combined to deliver the right amount of goodness. The glass was a Handled Stine, and at 20oz refilled 3 times, I was in heaven.

Poured from a bottle into a Mash Cult pub glass. The pour is dark mahogany (not black) and one can clearly see some light sneaking through. The head is fine, tan in color, and a half inch thick with good retention. The nose is mild, but I do get some roasted malt, toffee, and a hint of vanilla.

Medium body with a firm feel. Nice combination of roast and creaminess. Dark roasted malt up front without being too bitter. Some toffee in there as well and sarsaparilla on the finish. I haven't had this beer in years and I had forgotten how enjoyable it is.

12oz bottle. Label is notched for best before date of April, 2020.
Ruby brown colored body. One thick finger of light tan head. Leaves behind a spotty pattern of lacing.
Aroma is roasted malts (molasses), lactose, and a bit of chocolate.
Taste is roasted dark caramel malt, sweet lactose, dark chocolate, and a splash of coffee. The malt taste is quite dense, but the chocolate comes more forward in the after taste.
Slightly less than medium mouth feel, with a smooth texture. Very good carbonation.
A lower ABV% stout that provides a good depth of flavors.

This used to be a staple in my beer rotation back in the days of more limited selection, but then I haven't had any for a while. I decided to pick some up for Thanksgiving this year since I would also be drinking some wine and it's low in alcohol and I forgot how good this stuff was. Pairs wonderfully with cheese and crackers.

Pours a solid black color and the head dissipates slowly leaving a solid lacing around the glass.

Has a mild smell of coffee and chocolate.

The initial taste is creaminess but that is followed by bitter coffee and chocolate. For a beer with only 4.9% ABV, there sure is no shortage of flavor in this one.

As for mouthfeel, it feels like your traditional stout aka Guinness. It is not overly thick, which is the one area it does taste like a 4.9% stout.

Overall, this is a fantastic stout and while it is 4.9% thus making it a solid session beer but it's by no means lacking in flavor.
