a: its a dark black color - no light penetrating. 2 finger tan fizzy head that seems to fade and hang around 1 finger

s: smells nice. sweet chocolate, caramel, toasted malts, coffee, vanilla. a real nice smooth aroma

t: milk chocolate, toasted malts, a mixture of caramel and toffee, sugar (something sugary - not brown sugar), a cola-like flavor, and a very slight bitterness from a fresh coffee bean. something green - like grassy in here too, some dark plum

m: its a silky medium mouthfeel. pretty high carbonation for a stout

t: color me impressed. i know Alpine is know for the hops, but this is a nice beer. nice harmonization of chocolates, roast, and sweet malt. my criticism would be maybe a bit too much carbonation in the mouthfeel, almost makes it feel like a soda. otherwise its an easy drinker with nice flavors. not heavy enough to be a sipper, but not something to rush

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

Classic dark malt body color of dark walnut brown and opaque. A real nice creamy top, coffee espresso light brown, only about two fingers tall, but some creamy staying power with ring like lacing. Pretty nice looking solid stout.

A real nice great simple milk to chocolate roasty nose. Hints towards cream and milk but with no hint of sugar and lactose. Chewy and deep, I could nose this all day, one of the simplest and perfect smelling chocolate examples on a stout I've had.

Palate comes wonderfully with great flavors. Good mild coffee roast finish, with a milk faint coating, no sweetness. Mid palate fills with crunchy chocolate and dark cocoa nibs in flavor. Washing chocolate everywhere. A real perfect light body, nearly nailed with the malts coating all over.

This reminds me a lot of Cadillac Mountain in some ways, what a great example of a nice straightforward stout.

On tap at the brewpub in Alpine.

Appearance: Clear dark-red brown but opaque in the glass; the decent looking head soon reduces to a thin ring. Essentially no lacing.

Aroma: appealing mix of medium and dark malts with a hint of caramel.

Flavor: lightly sweet; ample dark roasted malts; a touch of coffe in the aftertaste and a hint of molasses earlier on..

Feel: Medium-light body with low but lively carbonation.

O: a fine stout.

Got in a trade with swingracex. 22 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy tan head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, oats, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, oats, and light earthy hops; with good strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, oats, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, toast, oats, light char, herbal, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt, oats, and light earthy hop flavors; with a nice roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, creamy, and slightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice oatmeal stout. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, oats, and light earthy hop flovors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
