3/5  rDev -18.7%

A- very dark. Big frothy head.

S- the smell is very weak. Barely detect some coffee and malt. Not impressed.

T- lightly sweet caramel, some coffee, and malt. Very subtle.

M- for a stout, the mouthfeel is good. Smooth. Milky. Low carbonation.

O- this is a good session stout. Low alcohol. Very drinkable. But nothing remarkable here.

On-tap at Blue Palms Brewhouse. Served in a nonic.

Red-brown liquid with a thin light desert sand head which persists well and exhibits excellent lacing.

Malt forward on the nose - rich and dark but not particularly roasty. Faint orange notes.

Bread pudding, mineral water, light coffee, and crème fraîche on the palate. The finish is slightly tart and dry with a hint of iodine. Just a touch of bitterness for balance. Diacetyl is a bit higher than I'd like - and reduces the drinkability significantly.

Medium-light, yet creamy body. Low but suitable carbonation.

Properly sessionable and surprisingly flavorful for the ABV - though as I said, the diacetyl gets in the way a bit.

While tasty, this comes across as more of a home-brew as it is a touch rough around the edges. Looking forward to seeing what Eagle Rock comes up with given more time...

Look: Black and totally opaque with traces of red throughout 1 inch tan head with great retention

Smell: Traces of tobacco and coffee

Taste: The taste reminds me of a more muted version of guinness. It has a bit of roasted malt and coffee

Mouthfeel: Good feel to it like most nitro beers. It has a medium to full body with medium carbonation

Overall: This beer is incredibly drinkable but that is about all it has going for it. Flavor is ok but nothing to write home about

Great beer.

This is a welcome addition to the Southern California beer scene. We need more beers like this. The nitro gives a big mouthfeel to such a light and easy to drink beer.

Bold roast flavors cover up the lack of heat in a way that makes me want another.

I'm not nearly as into the co2 version, so I won't review it.

Had this on tap at the brewery.

Glad to see someone finally stepping up and making a high-quality session beer. In my opinion, the dark mild has been criminally neglected by the craft community.

A: Very dark. Looks almost like a stout. Pours with a nice white head.

S: Has that nice malty / cereal sort of smell. A little bit of roastiness, but its subtle.

T: A fairly light flavor. You get a bit of chocolate, coffee, general roastiness, but its all up front, and the beer finishes clean. I got none of the diactyl that another reviewer noticed.

M: Beer was well carbonated. Mouthfeel was light, but not out of character for the style

D: On a nice hot day I could easily see putting back a growler of this.

Overall, I found this to be a solid first effort from a new brewery, and a good representation of the style.
