A: two finger head with excellent retention and lacing on a very dark brown body.

S: clean aroma caramel, light vanilla, cream, light roasted malts, oats

T: flavor is pretty simple with roasted malts, light coffee finish, hints of dark chocolate and oats

M: excellent for the style. a bit dry in the finish from the coffee. creamy body and moderte carbonation

Overall these can be boring and watered down. This one is full flavored but simple. It looks very good and feels great on the palate. may be their best year round brew.

Poured this beer into a Stout Glass. The beer poured almost black with a very nice amber color where the light passed through the shallow edges. The head was a solid two fingers high and a deep tan color. The head also had good representation of lacing. A bold malt aroma with a hint of tobacco made my taste buds anxiously awaiting the first draw from the glass. The tast was that of a bold oatmeal stout. A very smooth full flavored beer that made me want to drink some more. This beer goes down smooth and has a pleasant after taste. The label is a nice touch paying homage to a great story. This is a great beer to pair with great friends and a great steak. I would highly recommend this beer and I look forward to buying more.
