A very nice looking stout, very dark black with a darker-tinted, looser beige head. Smell is grainy and slightly roasted, with a sliver of alcohol. Sort of faint, but interesting stout aromas. Taste is reminiscent of Anchor Porter; has a certain savory taste, somewhat like soy sauce. Cocoa, nutty colombian-coffe, very mild sweetness. Nice mild hop bitterness compliments the grain bill well, very balanced beer.
A flavorful beer from Avery, a bit lighter than I look for in an American stout. Interesting flavor profile, but for some reason, this beer just doesn't call my name.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 12/22/2012. Pours nearly pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, biscuit, light toffee, light nuttiness, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, biscuit, light toffee, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Moderate roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roast, coffee, toast, biscuit, light char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/roasted malt flavors; with a good roast/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy, smooth, and moderately dry/chalky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice stout. All around good balance and complexity of very roasty, dark, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
