Dark brown, letting a fair amount of light pass around the edges. The head and carbonation looked very active.
Some nice aromas coming through. Sarsaparilla, light chocolate, and char. I'm also picking up a faint smoke.
I know this beer has no mention of being smoked, but I'll be damned if I'm not picking up campfire in mine. The roast comes through heavily in the flavor.
Body is thin and carbonation is higher than I prefer in a stout, but somehow seems to fit this one.
It's not a knock-your-socks off stout, but is definitely a user-friendly stout and very drinkable. It comes with a robust flavor but isn't a big boozy carbohydrate packed stout (that I enjoy very much.) I respect that.

Can poured into glass. Pours black with tan head that retains nicely. The nose starts with some fruity notes, mainly raisins. This is paired with chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of creaminess. The taste is fruit forward again with notes of raisin dominating. This gives way to a tangy metallic character that isn't working for me. Some roast appears up front but is ultimately drowned out by fruit and metallic notes. Mouthfeel is light for style with appropriate level of carbonation. Overall, this one just isn't working for me.
