3.55/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured from bottle into pint glass.
Looks "weird", almost cola like. Dark with some amber when held up to light. Thin head with lots of rising bubbles for a stout. Little lacing that hangs around.
Very sweet aroma, little malt. A bit thin.
Initial flavor is not bad, but sweet taste quickly fades to nothing but an off aftertaste. Improves as it warms, but nothing remarkable.
Mouthfeel is wimpy. Overall an average beer. I expected much better from Saint Arnold's.
Update: Much better flavor and aroma when served at the proper temperature. I'm an idiot (or impatient). Numbers upgraded accordingly.
Serving type: bottle

3.64/5 rDev 0%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Nice dark color with amber hues towards the sides. The light tan head is billowy and stays with on every sip you take, the lacing, though thin, marks every stop you take along the way.
Smell: A little hollow, but chocolate and roasted malts flavors do come through as it hits warmer temperatures. A little raisin and alcohol smell eventually come out.
Taste: Sweet and malty overall, the malts come out around the center of your mouth and the chocolate flavors towards the back of your throat. Mildly bitter on the corners of your mouth and there is a slight alcohol flavors that accompanies the bitterness.
Mouthfeel: This is a light-to-medium bodied stout with mild carbonation.
Overall: not a bad stout, a little light bodied in my opinion but well worth trying. This stout has good malts and chocolate characters to it and the hops are hidden but balanced.
