Nice looking beer. Had it on tap at a new restaurant in the area, Hop Jacks. Decent head, left phenomenal lace. The aroma was average and the taste was far from complex. Definitely more on the sweet side and very low bitterness. Good mouthfeel but not much of an aftertaste. Overall not a bad stout, won't be my go-to stout but I could "session" these on occasion.

22oz bomber into a teku glass. 7/18/13 bottling date

pours a very dark brown with reddish hues. Smell is of caramel, toffee and malts and is quite strong. the taste is also of caramel and toffee as well as some bready notes. very malty as well. reminiscent of arrogant bastard but without the hops. body is a tad light, id like it to be fuller. light carbonation as well.

overall a pretty good ale here, id drink another but i would always prefer arrogant bastard to this, so i'm not sure if i'd ever choose it willingly.

Food Pairing - Trailmix bar - almonds, peanuts, dried fruit, caramel etc. Really really good pairing here. I suspect the same would be true of any of these ingredients on their own!

A - Dark, reddish brown, nearly opaque. Light fizzy head, light lacing.
S - Oats and fruity qualities, definitely a dense sweetness that's enticing.
T - Rich! Some alcohol right up front, but gives way quickly to more interesting figs, dried cherries, fresh raspberry tartness, oats and molasses. Coppery caramel, saltwatter taffy, almonds. Finishes quite creamy.
M - Really smooth, the alcohol and creamyness isn't overpowering and goes down easy! Not dry, not thin, just right.
O - This beer really grew on me the more I progressed through the bottle - for maximum flavor, don't drink this straight out of the fridge! Let it warm up just a little. Great beer here at a great price, awesome for those looking to expand their beer horizons or anyone keen to enjoy a rich, intensely flavorful and fun beer.
