Drinkable and smooth with some light coffee tones in there. A really quality chocolate stout that tastes real, not overly processed fake crap and chemically. Fairly moderate ABV places it in a good zone

(12 oz bottle poured into a teku glass)

L: very dark brown liquid, just about opaque... puts up dark tan foam about a finger-width or more high, falls to thin collar... wants to lace, but no

S: smells like a damn dark chocolate bar (or cherry cordial), and it's quite lovely... hops buried... mild roast from the dark grain... delicate overtone of dry cereal grass

T: the roasty, dry stout flavor certainly comes out around the edges, but that barely-sweet and not actually all that bitter dark chocolate bunches and holds in the middle, finishing out drier than expected... getting a touch of nuttiness and perhaps a mild stone fruit (and/or cranberry?) ester past the finish, left behind in the aftertaste... mellow alcohol essence is present in background during a long pause between sips... definite coffee flavor develops halfway through, and the hops are light but do show later on... overall, perhaps a clash or cancelling out between elements - lacking some depth

F: it's approaching medium-bodied, but isn't quite round... faintly gritty residual outflow... doesn't excite the palate, but at least it's not syrupy

O: love how dry it is, so I could have 1 or 2 more ... the type of chocolate is a good choice and adds additional pleasant subtle facets to the dark, roasty grain flavors

pours jet black with a solid head.

smell is sweet, obviously a lot of chocolate notes.

taste is sweet and thin. very thin and watery for a 6.9% beer. not bad but not a complex and full bodied stout. the taste of chocolate and milk is at the forefront for me. not bad but not idea, i like some roastedness to my stouts.

overall not a bad beer but not a great beer. there are many stouts better than this one.

Looks nice-- pours a dark brown almost black chocolate color.
Created a nice long lived head with a tight knit light brown head that eventually combined into the surface of the beer. Laced the walls of the glass.
A mild nose-- with a hops note.
Flavor-- Yards labeled this libation as a Stout-- I'd call it more of a porter than a stout. Has chocolate notes at first but quickly melds into a benign flavor-- has some hops bitterness, toasted malt balancing the hops... but there's nothing particularly notable about the general flavor.
Mouthfeel is mild and smooth finish.
Overall this is a mild flavored and mild mouthfeel stanced beer.
This is a nice stout-- but I'd call it a porter rather than a stout.
