Pretty good stout here. Poured out of a bottle into a gravity glass. Not much of a head, but the taste is very good, with a heavy hint of coffee to it, slight chocolate taste but not overpoweringly sweet. Feels good, very smooth, creamy texture. Pretty carbonated. It's even better on tap, and they should totally get a nitro bottle of this produced.

Black in color with no penetration to light. There's a fingernail of beiger around the rim and the vast majority of the top. The aroma is chock full of dark malt and creamy lactose. The flavor is primarily that of sweet dark malt. The mouth is silky smooth and creamy.

Pours a deep brown with a thin tan head. Doesn't last but still manages some spots of lacing. The aroma is dark roasted malt with a with some sweet dark fruit and earthy notes. The taste is much the same. The body is a little lighter but pretty smooth.

12oz bottle pour into a tulip.
Look: Creamy fluffy head and pitch black.
Smell: Some coffee.
Taste: Some coffee here but it doesn't scream coffee.
Feel: Starts high on carbonation but finishes watery.
Overall: It's a decent stout. If this was on nitro, I can see this being better than Guinness. The mouthful could have been better.

After my stank ass done drank 14 of these fuckers in a session at some LAME ASS engagement party, with certainty and drink appeal, I can say this was a great stout. Nothing yall ain't had before, but after a 12 pack + 2, this mother user held strong and true like a concrete bridge support on the Ben Franklin Bridge. Drink this beer pussies.

Pours a dark Amber color. Has a light aroma roasted malts. Flavor is malty. A bit of a toasted flavor but not much else. Has a light aftertaste. Overall this is a stout 'light'. Nothing special here.
