App: Pours reddish brown with small off white head, at first glance more akin to a porter than stout.
Smell: slight roasted malts, sweet almost metallic smell (not unpleasant – just different); more pronounced as it warms
Taste: sweet, malty with a pleasant contrast of saltiness and a fairly clean finish
Mouthfeel: a bit of salty, tingling carbonation at first sip, light to medium bodied, make the tongue tingle in a not unpleasant manner
Overall: a peculiar beer, enjoyable and definitely a beer I wouldn’t shy away from if it were on tap. An easily quaffable beer, a far cry from the aggressive, coffee/chocolate stouts and perhaps could be enjoyed with a seafood bisque or lobster to complement and contrast flavors.

Enjoyed this bottle out of a standard pint glass.

A: Pours a dark black hue with a very thin brown ½-finger head that quickly dissipates and leaves no lace or trail.

S: Not a huge nose here – toasted malts and chocolate aroma.

T: Smooth mild roasted malts and background tastes of coffee, caramel, and chocolate.

M: Very smooth, medium body and minimal carbonation.

O: Decent stout. No one flavor or aroma stands out and takes control of this brew.

22 oz bottle, bottling date of "Oct '12" listed on the label.

pours opaque black in color, just a little off-white head. a few ruby highlights. Pretty mild aroma, a little coffee-like smell.

taste has a bit of cola flavor, caramel. slightly sweet, just slightly roasty. lingering aftertaste. thin to medium body, lower carbonation. Could definitely be a bit thicker to improve the mouthfeel.

overall - not bad, but I like my stouts to have a bit more aggressive roasty flavors.
