Pours dark with a small head. Every beer from this brewer has a dark fruit smell and taste in every beer. That doesn't work in a lot of styles and it brings this beer down. No chocolate in the smell but you do get some in the flavor. Not a great beer but it's not terrible either.

Upon opening the can and pouring it into a pint glass this beer looked as it should. It's very dark has a nice off-white semi brown lacing head. And from there I may as well be drinking water. There is no body, no flavor, and minimal smell. Being a fan of heavier beers I was extremely disappointed by this offering. If I was blindfolded and given this, there is a fair chance I would think I was drinking some type of water.

For the cheapest beer in the store, it’s not bad. It can’t compete with the top chocolate stouts out there, but it’s drinkable and tasty enough to make it a bargain for the price.

I know his isn't very constructive, but the look is the only thing going for this. It's dry, it tastes like powdered roasted chocolate, and is very watery. Cheap, yes. Good, no. Cheers.

Pours opaque dark brown with khaki head that takes a while to settle. Very Guinness-like.
Smell is subtle roast. Cocoa is subtle. Taste is more of the roast malt with earthy ash finish. Flavor tends more to coffee than chocolate.
A little more heavily carbonated and poundable than I wanted from a stout.
Overall great cheap beer and would get it again.
