A realtively lightweight stout from the Cicinnati RBRB. This is a black, opaque bodied sout with a single finger of beige head. The head lingers well and creates decent lacing thoughout most of the glass.

The nose is fairly light and not well developed, being mostly of a light coffe-like aroma. There are faint elements of a roasted malting also present, but, again, this is not as impressive as other stouts.

The taste is good though equally lacking a strong central character. The best element seems to be coffee and again that slight roasted sense. The body is very light and tends toward wateriness.

Drinkability is good overall if not drool inducing. Perhaps my taste has become more attuned to the likes of Storm King, Expedition, and Old Rasputin stouts, but a light stout of this nature seems to be lacking in character. Strangely I haven't that to be true of the Samuel Smith and Young's oatmeal stouts, so perhaps it's a matter of the strength of the body.
