Deep, virtually black hue. A flash of hazy crimson appears when held to light. Thin, but steadfast tan head yields sparse form trails. The aroma is comprised of rounded notes of baker's cocoa, singed chocolate cookie, along with a savory, salty tinge. Obviously sweeter, honey and fudge notes surface as the beer warms. Enticing aromawise. Upfront in flavor is a bittersweet combination of burnt barley and raisiny dark lovibond caramel malt. Midpalate notions of dark chocolate infused mocha appear and linger agreeably. A trace metallic twang comes forth as the beer breathes. Thinnish in body, with a mouthfeel shy in dextrins. Finishes cleanly, with quickly fleeting notes of milk chocolate and trace prune. San Quentin's a well balanced stout, having ample cocoa notes, although the thin body detracts from the malt profile. Good overall.
