A. Deep brown, with red highlights and a light tan head that immediately runs to the edges of my goblet. Tiny bits of lace linger. Still.
S. Deep, sweet roasted malts, possibly lactose? Sweet and smooth, in any case, cocoa and a hint of red wine. Treacle and singed sugars. Some spice, but vague. It's a good nose, expressive and with lots of malt depth. Sweetens up as it warms - usually a smell this bold and malt foward would be found in a higher ABV beer, but I'm not complaining.
T. A little lighter than expected, given the nose. Sweet, cool and thin, with an emphasis on malt sugars and rich roast. Chocolate and a very small coffee tidbit remain in the finish. Really not bad, but nothing super special, either. A sweeter American stout, barely bitter, with enough malt presence to be interesting, but there are better out there.
M / O. Thinner mouthfeel and medium-low carbonation to this one. Pretty sure this was last year's vintage, so I would go easy on it. Winter Stout is not bad at all, but I would very much like to try this fresher...

A- Dark roasty stout. Thin lacing with no legs. Smalles of head
S- Pretty bland here. Just traditional stout non-characteristic from this one. Roasted dark fruit, toffee
M- About average to just above average as far as how thick this is for an American stout. Decent amount of carbonation down the throat.
T- Mild (dark) chocolate taste, dark fruits. Toffee
O- It was pretty good. I probably wouldn't buy it, but I was happy to try it.
