Poured into a Libby Porter/Stout glass

a - pours black with slight amber tint, no head at all, small amount of lacing around edge.

s - chocolate and caramel with coffee hints

t - starts smooth and sweet, like a milk chocolate bar, but not much flavor. Hint of spice. Finish is a little smoky. Not very bitter at all.

m - kind of watery, I'm wondering if something was wrong with this bottle

o - Definitely a great idea, it just needs more character and body. If I find after opening another bottle that this one was faulty, I'll re-review.

From tasting notes on 9-6-11
Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance: Dark brown with virtually no head. This beer left absolutely no lacing whatsoever.

Smell: Not much here that I am detecting. Some sweet malts and a hint of alcohol, perhaps.

Taste: Toasty malts, some hop bitterness also there, but the malts win out. The finish is somewhat bitter, however.

Mouthfeel: Thin and watery. Not that appealing, and not as drinkable.

Overall: This beer was okay, but I probably wouldn't have it again any time soon unless there wasn't much selection.

On tap at the "hideout", which is an old warehouse converted into a brewery. Tanks everywhere its quite a site to see. Pour is dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is chalked full of roast, chocolate malts and hazelnut. Flavor really follows suit. Light buttery presence that really doesnt mesh well
