Another review to catch up on. 12 oz bottle I received as an extra in a trade (don't remember woth whom). Poured into a DFH pint glass...

A - Pours an almost opaque blackish-brownish color. A nice creamy 2 finger head forms and retains nicely. Nice lacing down the glass.

S - Chocolate, roasted malts, and coffee notes mix together nicely. Some slight earthy hops make a nice appearance bringing things together.

T - Big roasted malt flavor here with nice chocolate and coffee flavors mixing together in the background. Some bitter hops at the end really add nicely to the overall flavor.

M - Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Nice and creamy texture on the tongue. Nice.

O - A really nicely done "everyday" stout that I wish I could get more of on a regular basis. Definitely a nice go to stout I could have several of in one sitting.

Had this on 2011-11-16 in Maple Grove, MN at the 3 Squares restaurant.

A - Black with a 1-finger, long-lasting, light brown head into a standard pint glass. Very good lacing.

S - Milk chocolate, dried fruit, some coffee. Not real strong but there are food odors present.

T - Really good. Coffee and chocolate, enhanced by the dark-roasted, caramel malt with just a hint of sourness. The aftertaste is rich in roasty-bitter flavors, which last a long time.

M - Medium body and light carbonation yield a milkshake creamy feel. More so than from the bottle. Almost seemed like it was on nitrogen.

O - A fine beer. Good in bottles or on-tap.
