12 oz. bottle poured into tulip
(12/17/13 born-on date)

L: lighter than black, almost a dark dark amber that is crystal clear up to the light; like an amber lager with a few drops of ink mixed in; weak head, maybe 1/4-inch of tan that disappears quickly; keeps an OK collar, but all in all, very disappointing

S: medicinal grain hits even with the dark malt notes -- brown sugar, coffee, some chocolate; if it didn't know any better, i'd mistake this for Saint Arnold's Amber Ale at first; it clearly needs to warm up ... and as it does, it barely gets into an old-ale range with some raisins/sour grapes/red wine showing up

T: much like the nose, there's some darker malt notes in here, but it's coming off an awful lot like a very NON-stout brew ... grain, that Saint Arnold medicinal bland taste, and very little dark dried fruits, chocolate or coffee. only on the very last bit of aftertaste do you get some of the really good stout notes, but you really got to wait on them.

F: it's weak for a stout but there's also no doubt it's super drinkable; plenty of carbonation despite the very weak-looking pour

O: major disappointment. there's just a pinch more dark malt in this than SA's amber lager, and that's a bummer. a perfect gateway beer for your friends, but if you want a stout, this ain't it.
