This is just what a Stout is supposed to be in my book. This is a tasty approachable easy drinking stout. Believe it or not I have to thank my Dad (who doesn't even drink beer) for bring this and 4 other Alaskan beers back from his vacation, just for me. <don't I feel special>
Appearance: Dark dark brown almost black with a chocolaty brown head that has medium retention and fades to a nice frothy cap. The cap and the lacing last the duration of the beer.
Smell: Lightly toasted malts, coffee, and a hint of birch wood settle gently in the nose.
Taste: This is my morning mocha meets my evening stout. What a perfect light easy oatmeal stout flavor with chocolaty coffee, light oats and grains, medium/light roasted malts, and hints of molasses in the slightly coffee like body; mmm tasty! Sweet enough to find hints of brown sugar but it is bitter enough to find the hop character dancing around on your tongue as well. Alaskan Stout has it all =) for a small sessionable stout.
Mouthfeel: Small amount of carbonation leaves it feeling smooth and creamy but the hop character adds some dimension the mouthfeel leave it as a creamy medium bodied beer.
Drinkability: This is an easy drinking stout if ever I have had one. What a pity I only have two. I could drink this by the case. boy the aftertaste is perfect and enticing. WOW! I am impressed!
Hope this is helpful.
