I believe I got this one from Halftime beverage.com
A - Pours a very deep brown almost pitch black with a full inch of mocha head that seems to stick around minutes after pouring. Already I am impressed.
S - Oh no I smell a touch of metallic like grain with a bit of roast and just a pinch of chocolate like malts. Not good.
T - Well it's fairly thin which makes it taste like a version of Guinness draft. The roast does play into the taste but very little if nowhere to be found chocolate malts. The metallic twang is also constant which is a bummer.
M - Thin, not very chewy or consistent with the style.

Overall it does dial back with the metallic note after it warms a bit but it's a thin very forgettable stout with mild flavors.

12oz. bottle courtesy of innuendobrewskiman63 (thanks Jeff). Served in a standard pint glass. Pours the color and clarity of cola with a thin fizzy head that effervesces and dissipates immediately off the pour. Nose is not what I expected - cherry notes dominate, followed by the merest suggestion of dark malts and maybe a hint of brown sugar. Taste - not great, tart cherries, acidic, old coffee grounds, metallic notes - it's pretty bad. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a lively, almost prickly carbonation and some astringency. Well - hopefully this is just a bad bottle, but this is one of the worst beers I've had in a while. Definitely infected if I had to guess. The first beer I've drain-poured in quite a while.

On Tap at the brewery in Troy, NY. Pours dark brown with long lived off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of caramel malt, dark fruit and cacao. Body is full, creamy and smooth. Caramel malt, vanilla, coffee, brown sugar, dark fruit, sherry and hint of hops combine on the palate. Finish is long and semi-dry. Delicious brew.
