3.18/5  rDev -8.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle into red wine glass.

A moderately vigorous pour reveals a rather thin texture, looks like cola being poured, with a one finger beige head that leaves a nice ring around the glass at the level of the brew. A translucent black, a little (very little) light leaks through around the edges revealing a much browner tinge than I'm used to. Most stouts are reddish when held to the light.

Smell...almost none. A slight hint of bitterish roasted malts

Taste is good, but nothing spectacular at all. Roasted malts not really sweet or bitter just somewhat caramel. Nothing objectionable I just expect there to be more flavor there in a stout. <edit> After it warmed and I got a little further in, and started paying attention to other things, I started to notice a milk chocolate flavor. Nothing blatant but nice when it came out.

Mouthfeel is ok. I expected it to be thinner after watching the pour, but it is viscous enough to be stout worthy for me...on the light end but better than a Guinness. The carbonation is higher than I'd like and I'll definitely pour more vigorously next time.

On the plus side I could drink these all night. Not too heavy in body or flavor and absolutely nothing objectionable.

It's great to have the multitude of choices that make this just an average beer. I love American microbrew culture!
