look: 5 | smell: 1 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

Found it at Lidl's in Greenwood, SC.

Look- wow, nice! Dark, dark, dark. Held it up to a light but did not see the light through it. Gorgeous chocolatey brown head starts at four fingers and eventually recedes to a film with a thick foam sheet more than a lacing.

Smell- none. Seriously, none. For all the look, the aroma was nonexistent. Natty Lite gives the nose more to enjoy, no matter what the bottle promises.

Taste- not bad, but not what I would call very ambitious for a stout. A far cry from a drain pour, but kinda clumsy, for lack of a better word. The tastes all go ok together, but if they could order themselves up better the beer would be greatly improved. I'm going to drink this one and it's not bad, wouldn't push one away from me if offered, but I don't see paying for one again.

Feel- It does have a decent mouthfeel.

Overall- Drinkable, and would still prefer it over other beer styles I don't care for, but otherwise not a favorite.

From Lidl. In Ikea's pint glass. Watching Los Soprano 2x01. Lots of roastyness in aroma. Coffe and dark chocolate in mouth, with a bit watery feeling that doesnt displease but makes it very drinkable
