look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Black, good head, sticky lacing.

Smell: Big roasted grain aroma.

Taste: Nicely balanced chocolate, roasted grain, and mild sweetness. Very tasty.

Mouthfeel: Moderate but not too heavy.

Overall: Another Steel Toe brew that I tried on tap, loved, and so bought a bottle to review. Very tasty stuff, hits a nice balance between sweetness and dark chocolate bitterness along with having a nice feel to it. Good stuff.

at republic uptown served in a pint glass with a thin finger of dark tan frothy head that leaves little lacing and breaks down rather rapidly. Brownish black in color. Aromas of rich dark chocolatey malt. Notes of rich toasted sugar as well. Flavor is rich dark toasted malt with characteristics of heavily roasted coffee. End note is a tad bitter from the dark malts. Medium bodied with a carbonation level a bit high that seems to bring out the lingering almost astringent aftertaste from the roasted malts. Overall a decent beer that could benefit from a little less in your face dark malt and better balance.

Poured into grande snifter.

A - Pours a dark fluffy khaki head and near black in color. Head doesn't keep for long but this beer has solid lacing.

S - Notes of coffee, chocolate, and a faint campfire smell.

T - On the roasted - smoky, and maltier side as far as taste. I'm picking up a dark roast, cocoa, the oats as mentioned in its description, and something reminiscent to black licorice.

M - Medium slightly heavier body and not overly bitter. Kind of boozy so has some warmness from the alcohol.

O - This is the third beer I've had from Steel Toe behind Size 7 and Rainmaker, and I'm not quite as in love with this one compared to those two. The flavors and smell are not as potent as I'd like, and it just doesn't stand out to me. It's a solid beer but I don't know if it I'd go for it again anytime soon.

Enjoying a fresh growler from the brewery today. Poured opaque black with a small tan head that faded quickly to a persistent skein. Smell was roasted malt, coffee and chocolates. Very nice. Taste had nice roasty elements, deeply roasted malt and French roast coffee. Sweet and semi sweet chocolate. Late on the palate is a little hint of dark fruit. Lightly hopped, with a slight hop and roasty coffee bean like bitterness that leaves the finish clean, lightly bitter, and dry. Nice medium body, creamy texture. Excellent, tasty export stout.
