Black color, thin white head. No discernible aromas. Strong malt flavors with a delayed finish of burnt wood, which leaves a weird aftertaste. I don’t get any of the caramel, chocolate, or coffee notes the bottle claims.

Pours a black in color with a tan head. Nose has hints of chocolate, roasted malts and dark, burnt coffee. When tasting, you get the roasted malts and chocolate with the burnt coffee on the back end. Pretty good.

Picked up a bomber at Loews in Banner Elk Saturday for $4.49. Bottled on 3-8-16.

Beer poured black with a nice tan head.

Nose has hints of roasted malts.

Taste is roasted malts forward with a decent amount of grapefruit hops that is leaving a lingering bitterness on the palate.

Mouthfeel is thinner than hoped and somewhat smooth.

Overall this is a decent brew that is worth a shot.

Look: The color is dark brown that is fairly clear when held to the light. It has a tan head.

Smell: It has aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, some burnt smells, and low fruit aroma most like dark fruits.

Taste: The flavors are roasted malts with chocolate compliments. There are some burnt flavors that are moderate. The fruit flavors are low and dark.

Feel: It has a medium feel with slightly above moderate carbonation.

Overall: As an American Stout, it was a little more burnt than and expected and fruits were more dark than citrus. With that said, it was a malt driven flavor beer that has good taste overall and was easy drinking.

Pours black under a small beige head that collects around the edges into a bubbly ring. Malty aromas like toasty caramel, roasted grain, light smoke, and coffee with cream. Flavor is fairly heavy on the char, a little watery coffee roast, and some hoppy bitterness....seems to be missing some sweetness and substance, coming across as a bit empty. Medium bodied. I love a good regular stout, but this is completely forgettable unfortunately.

Nice looking stout with a long lasting tan head. Mild coffee and burnt malt nose, with a taste to match. Not too sweet, but not very complex either. Feels a little closer to a porter, but overall easy drinking and satisfying.
