3.2/5 rDev -8.3%
Pours almost black with one fingered tan head and a little lacing on sides of my snifter.
Smell is good with heavy roasted malt and chocolate and a little coffee.
Taste is roasted malt with maybe a little camp fire mixed in. Mild bitterness. Not much else.
Mouthfeel was pretty poor. Much thinner than I had expected. Pretty watery and almost no carbonation.
Overall this was o.k. Glad we have this as an option in Mississippi but definitely not my favorite.

Picked up a bottle of this at my local corner market.
Pouring into a 3 floyds pint glass (despite instructions to drink it from the bottle). Dark brown with mahogany highlights. A dense, creamy light tan foam formed on top and has excellent retention. Lacing.
Dark roasted malts in the aroma - bittersweet chocolate and ground coffee. Slight sourness.
Roasty malts up from with a touch of dark chocolate. Subtle charcoal. A medium/medium-high bitterness creeps in at the finish and lingers on into the finish. A slight twang underlies the other flavors.
Medium-full in body with a creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is low.
Overall not too impressive. Hard to compare this to the draft version and not as good as many American craft brewed examples of the style.

A- Pours black, two finger tan head. Great retention, great lacing.
S- Coffee, chocolatey, smokey, a little creamy, light in smell in general.
T- An easy drinking palatable stout, the usual roasted coffee and chocolate notes, bready malt.
M- Thick creamy head, the body is a little thin, light carbonation, smooth, dry refreshing finish.
O- Not complex by any means, still any enjoyable beer and a great intro for those wanting to try a stout. When you do step up, try a Siberian Night Imperial by Thirsty Dog, it's an excellent beer.
