Picked up a six-pack of this stout on 1-29-12. Not sure this stout is "retired" as the description says--bottling date on the label was 12-15-11 and the store where I purchased it had quite a few sixes on the shelf.

A nice stout with some really good flavor. Nice vanilla/oaky taste with a smooth finish. Very drinkable. May seem a little watered down to some, but I enjoyed it--a "lite" stout. Really nice overall.

Not the power and depth of some of the more popular barrel-aged stouts on the market right now, but also did not come with the crazy price some of the bigger stouts are getting.

Not real impressed, possible because I've been drinking Stone IRS lately.

Appearance- Pours black with a rich light colored head. Kinda thin and watery in the pour.

Smell- Both the oak and the vanilla come thorough nicely. Mild malt sweetness but kinda bland. No real hop notes at all.

Taste- Here's where it falls down. Watery and bland. Like the smell, the vanilla and oak come through but just barely. Not much malt sweetness, which is what I expect from a stout. No real hop bitterness, there's hops there but nothing outstanding. I think it all comes down to the lack of malt sweetness and thickness. It's watery and weak. It's not a bad beer, no faults to complain about other than the lack of anything outstanding.

Mouthfeel- Crisp and clean, astringent oak comes through clearly.

Drinkability- Definitely a drinkable beer, not much heavier than any pale ale. It's OK, just not great.
