Found this one at one of my local gas stations that has a larger-than-you'd-expect craft beer section. Had a hankering for a stout so I thought why the hell not.

From a can without a discernible best by or canned on date.

Pours a deep ruby brown bordering on black with a finger of creamy head that dissipates at average pace. Leaves decent lacing. Held up to light it appears unfiltered and has lazy carbonation.

Smells pretty standard for a heavy stout, lots of chocolate and vanilla notes, raisins or dates, sweet sugary malt smell, very enticing all around.

Tastes good, much better than expected. First notes are black coffee and dark chocolate but not as acidic. Very sweet malt that is cut by the roast and hop bitterness. Deep earthy notes really balance the malt here. Aftertaste rounds out into a sweet fruity/bready finish. For a 9% ABV beer, the alcohol is pretty subdued. It's there, but in the background. Pretty standard flavor profile for a stout, but it's a cut above some of the other local stuff I've had.

Mouthfeel is rich and velvety, maybe a little bit watery if I really think hard, but all-in-all it's a good, heavy stout feel. Alcohol tingles the tastebuds after the swallow, but it's pretty mild.

Very pleasantly surprised by just how good this beer is. I live right across the border in Texas and I could get to Broken Bow in about an hour. Compared to a lot of local stuff I've had, it's certainly high up my rankings. Keep doing Broken Bow proud, MFB.

To good health and good beer.

Creamy tan head that lasts and laces. Opaque black-ruby

Sweet dark chocolate, crystal and roasted malts, coffee, a hint of vanilla and wheat bread.

Smooth, nutty, roasty and malty; a definite flavor of cocoa, nondescript hop character but with a bracing and balancing effect. Definite alcohol presence but it is not overly boozy and plays well with the over flavors and aromas.

This is where this beer excels. Feels great in the mouth. Full bodied and smooth as silk, but not too heavy, and not boozy (alcohol burn). The stomach and the palate plays tug of war over this elixir!

Whoah Momma!
This one's definitely going into the rotation.

L-Pours a jet black/brown mat color with a small lacy head. Slight carbonation. Looks quality. Small yeast floaters are visible. Looks very thick.
S-Roasted malts, milk chocolate, toasted nuts, sweet bread, peanut butter, and licorice. Clean and precise. No boozeyness at all.
T-The taste is very nice. Milky and chocolatey up front, roasted malts and peanut butter. subdued but very nice flavor.
F-Very thick, but nothing off-putting. Very nice!
O-This is a thick a** stout that's made very well. Full bodied, yet incredibly drinkable. Although I wouldn't drink this every day I will likely seek this out again.

Oily stout pour, thick appearance with rich head ring and lacing.
Nose is mostly hops with a some roasted malts in the background. But nice. Faint alcohol.
First thing I notice is how clean the taste is. Flavor is like the aroma. This is a stout with nice roasted, bitter notes with hops, but with a clean finish. There’s cocoa in there too. Makes me not want to pause much between sips. Nothing complex at all. Just a highly drinkable imperial stout. As my stout glass gets much less full, I appreciate the subtle coffee notes buried within this. Again, all so clean. The can modestly mentions the water source as the Mountain Fork River. I think they have a damn good source.
Feels medium-smooth, with fairly low carbonation, and slick.
Simply VERY good. And while even the beer’s name doesn’t at all reach for a branch of creativity, it most definitely doesn’t need one.

Tried MFB 9.0 for the first time last night. Pours black as night. Creamy mouthfeel. Taste hops, roasted malt. They have a winner with this one. A very smooth stout.
