A combination of seeing Figueroa Mountain in Orange County plus liking the lineup which I've tasted so far inspired the purchase of this 22 ounce stout. On to the beer:

An inch of lightly tanned colored head rets top this ink black stout. Whisps of lacing rings around the glass.The aroma shows the standard dark cocoa tones per style, a little milk sweetness, roast, and a kiss of oats.

Your standard craft brewed stout, perhaps a little sweeter than normal. Pleasant all around, sweet from the oats, plus the semi-sweet chocolate note. The roasted malt carries the bitterness needed to cut the sweet flavor of the beer. It's a medium bodied beer which seems to veer into medium-heavy at points, but remains a good drinkable beer that won't weigh you down.

Served from a 22oz. bottle into a globe glass...

Pours black and finally worked up a 1 finger tan colored head towards the end of the pour. Foam drops off to nice sticky foam on the sides of the glass and a thin ring around the inside.

Bringing the glass to the nose, mocha, roasted grains and a little oatmeal was all I could detect. I honestly expected a little more on the nose but...

On the taste, bitter roasted grains, a hint of smoke, chocolate, maybe the slightest sour note and the coffee taste I love.

Rich, smooth, medium mouthfeel that finished dry with leftover coffee, smoke and bitterness. Nicely balanced and not over carbonated.

Overall, not a bad stout and the first beer I've had from this brewery. If this is an indicator, I'm looking forward to tasting some of their other offerings.

Cheers!

Notes from 10/18/13

A: Inky black body, dark as can be with an oily sheen. Fairly poor head retention and virtually no stick or cling to the glass.

S: Rich espresso melds with cocoa and dark malted grains with a faint hint of smoke on the trailer. Fairly clean aromatics with some deep roast character.

T: Dark roast grain and toasted cereals fuses with some smoky espresso beans and a touch of bakers chocolate. Nothing harsh or abrasive here. I am getting some faint dark fruity esters as well. There is a low amount of hop bitterness and no alcohol comes across in the flavor. Very smooth balance and rich robust flavors. Really quite tasty.

M: Somewhat light in body but with a very smooth and creamy texture. Lush and velvety with a light drying finish and clean exit.

D: This is a great rendition of the style. I simply do not comply with some of these other reviews. Perhaps they have fine tuned the recipe? Great developed flavor profile here and not super dry or astringent with the roast. Could possible use a little more body but otherwise really well done.
