Wow, was initially excited to try this beer - but it let me down hard. Poured a dark, ruby color - not much head nor carbonation. The nose was sweet, roasty and had some fig-like esters. The alcohol comes out a little in the nose. The taste is incredibly thin and watery - not much flavor. It kind of tastes like an undercarbonated cola, sweet and syrupy. The finish lingers, somewhat medicinal and roasted. Calling this a "stout" is an empty promise, and I hope this brewery makes some adjustments to their malt bill.
