Strawberry Milk Stout on draught at Flying Saucer Austin
Ranger Creek
20130616
Tap to a Goblet (13.5oz probably)

A - A dark oak brown, opaque and uniform. A little head that dissipated.

S - Like a strawberry milkshake, a nice thick one. There's some maltiness and sweetness like a brown sugar. This is covered by a little strawberry layer, quite nice. I pick up some cocoa and leather now.

T - A normal slightly roasted low-ABV stout. Needed to warm a little to allow the strawberrry to come through, on the backend mostly. Still very slight. I pick up some cocoa and a clear light roast presence now.

M - Heavy-medium bodied, not quite smooth. It's tingly on the tip of the tongue, but smooth on the back of the tongue. I quite like it.

D- Smells like the name, but the taste isn't quite what I think it should be. With some warmth we get more strawberry, but I think I'd like it a little stronger. Overall a good stout, and it plays to my preference of lightly roasted stouts (sorry coffee fans).
4.25, 4.25, 4, 4, 4.

I must say, after some more time, the taste more closely matched the strawberry milkshake smell profile. I'm getting more strawberry on the tongue, all over the tongue really. The mouthfeel is still this hybrid tingly-smooth that I'm unexpectedly digging.
I do not know if I should upgrade the taste points to 4.25. It did take quite some time for this to emerge (roughly 35 minutes by my count).

On tap at the Flying Saucer at the Lake Beerfeast 2012.

The beer pours a black color with a tan head. The aroma has a lot of chocolate and roasted malt in it, as well as a hint of strawberry. The flavor is very heavy on the roasted malts and chocolate, with a little bit of lactose. There is a little bit of sweet, fruity strawberry in the flavor, but it is fairly subtle. Still, it doesn't clash with the other notes in the flavor and makes the beer quite enjoyable. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

This is a nice dark ale topped off with a light tan head that quickly dissipated into thins, scattered bubbles. Hops aromas are very present and you can pick up hints of the occasional dark fruits-blueberry and blackberry, figs, and plum. This is a full bodied beer, slightly bitter overall and goes down smooth has a good alcohol aftertaste.
