Had a pitcher of this at the Molly's down the street.
this brew pours up a solid dark brown with a decent tan head. nice lacing too. in the nose, I get bread dough from the yeast, roasted malts, cocoa powder, dark chocolate. I taste sweet chocolate malts, toasted grain, burnt wood, slight hop bittering, piney hops (in that order). medium bodied, medium spritzy carbo. My favorite of the Saint Arnold line up, besides the Divines.

4.55/5 rDev +25%
Appearance: Pours a very dark red-brown (almost black) body with a healthy butterscotch head that settles into a small and almost Guinness-like cream
Aroma: Sweet and malty, almost reminds me of soured Guinness (and not in a bad way)
Taste: Absolutely bursting with flavor! Rich roasted malt body with definite dark chocolate, coffee and caramel notes
Mouthfeel: Feels cold, coats well and is not too fizzy
Drinkability: Initially it seems quite rich, but after a few sips it's a very sessionable beer (providing you like stouts)
Verdict: This a truly a brilliant example of an American Stout with the added bonus of being local. I really wish Saint Arnold would brew this year-round, but they say the demand is not there. What a shame.

This is one of the most chocolatey stouts I have had to date(Except the Rogue Chocolate stout)
A- Deep dark brown, almost opaque black with garnet edges. Nice tight head with OK retention
S- Smells like roasted chocolate malts. Sweet, but with a hint of bitter hops
T- The roasted chocolate flavor goes great with the bitter hops. Ends up tasting like a mocha, but with a distinct beer-grain-taste to it
M - Light and creamy. Perfect for a stout
D- Very good. Sweet and filling, yet dry and clean
