Bottle serving. I assume this is the same as the Millstream Back Road Stout from the same brewery under a different listing, with the only difference being the label.

A: Opaque dark brown. Light brown head that settles to a thin veil across the top of the beer. No visible carbonation. Almost no lacing.

S: Moderate notes of dark roasted coffee, and a hint of sweeter toffee. Toast, and grains. Dry oatmeal.

T: The taste follows the nose with very minor amounts of sweet characteristics, with a toasty malt element being the most prominent flavor. Some roasted coffee. The finish is a bit dry, almost ashy.

M: I think this beer falls a bit flat on mouth feel. I am trying to be impartial to the double stout, whose thick rich mouth feel I prefer. However, I do think that this beer is relatively thin and highly carbonation for the style.

D: The beer is drinkable, no question about that It is a dry single stout with no overpowering sweet elements, a good coffee flavor with roasted malts being the most prominent characteristic.

Like all the beers I have had from them this is an easy drinking stout that is easy on the wallet at $7.99 a six pack. Sweet and toasty with a nice coffee balance. Great Stout!
