A very meh stout. Exactly what you'd expect if handed a bottle and told "this is the most generic stout available."

Had a bottle at o'hare for 8.00.

Beer was served black with a decent off white head.

Nose had hints of mocha and lightly roasted malts.

Taste was well balance between the malts and hops.

Feel was medium bodied and smooth.

Overall a nice beer to have - recommended.

Definite upfront sweetness to this one: But more of a "lighter" vs "darker" sweetness if that makes sense: (Think white sugar vs. brown.) Less syrupy/rich, but not in a good way. A fair amount of kick/booziness, given the 7.5%. (More like a doppelbock.) The deal breaker for me is a very sustained bitterness/bite with the finish that lingers on the palate; do not like at all. Didn't dissipate with warming. Totally Non-existent head & Similarly no lacing. Wouldn't go here again.

Tasty stout. Here goes:

A: Not that good. Pours a small head and doesn't leave much lacing. The body, however, is very dark.

S: As advertised. Lots of lactose sugar and dark chocolate. Lots of coffee as well.

T: Follows the nose, but it's a little too simple. Just dark chocolate and milky coffee. that's about it.

F: Good. Nice and thick.

O: Good beer, but wish it was more complex and robust.
