Very dark brown with three fingers of five minute head. Splotches of lace.
Smell is chocolate coffee.
Taste is chocolate coffee molasses. Some bitterness in the end.
Mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. Finish is mild and balanced.
Overall a tasty and mild stout.

Burnt water with hints of chocolate and beer. Drank one of the six cans and it was months before anyone was desperate to finish the rest of them. Without a doubt the worst stout I have ever tasted.

Way tastes like bitter aluminum. Pass by this one at TJs.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Look: Pitch black. A finger of tan head that almost immediately dissipates.

Smell: Sweet roasted malt, cocoa, toffee.

Taste: Very mild compared to the nose. Roasted malt with almost no bitterness coming from it, a little brown sugar, and that's about all.

Mouthfeel: Very thick, with a surprising tingle of carbonation not typically seen in stouts.

Overall: While this is disappointing in the sense that it doesn't really measure up to what a chocolate stout should be, it's still not a bad beer and I would take it over a macrobrew any time.

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.
