Purchased December 2013, opened September 2014. Bottle 1323/2352. Took 10 minutes to pour because of the amount of head. Chocolate aroma, dried fruit. Flavor profile is more dried fruit (currants) with red wine astringency and less chocolate/coffee. A fair amount of alcohol in the finish. Medium+ carbonation and heavy body. Bitter finish. Very dry for an AIS.

A: dark as the night, big fluffy steady tan head which sucumbs to a 1/4 inch till the last sip.

S: roasted malts, coffee, faint caramel, astringent and soapy.

T: it's incredibly clean and easy going on the palate. Some bitterness is noticeable, but it hides pretty well it's 10%abv. Really glad it's not a coffee punch in the face as most stouts seem to be nowadays. Posseses certain mineralistic characteristic which i've noticed very common between Texas stouts.

M: starts fresh, followed by a medium body with a not too overpowering degree of harshness, end smooth and slightly hot, gone in no time.

O: Texas is yet to be known for it's stouts. This would definitely be in my top 3 Texas stouts, but on a bigger scale flavors were not entirely desireable. It has all the proper characteristic of a great stout, but i feel like it was lacking something to pull everything together. Wouldn't mind enjoying it again.
