Clear black colored beer with very little head formation, looks a lot like a glass of coke.

Smells sweet per the style with a good chocolate aroma. Patent malt and a scent of mint. Slight smoke scent.

Starts out slightly sweet with a smoky after taste. Little bit of chocolate and coffee flavor, this seems to lake substance to it, lot like drinking a coke.

Mouthfeel is soda pop.

Overall there isn't that much to it. Like drinking a beer flavored soda.

Poured into an E&J Cask & Cream glass on 10/2/12

Dark, almost scorched brown. One finger head thins to a soapy layer. Impressive swaths of drippy lace cling to the glass.

Brash dark roast is at the core of the aroma; like burnt coffee. There are mildly sweet dark grains and overtones of a creamy sweetness. Disjointed at first, but comes together quickly.

The taste picks up where the aroma leaves off: dark coffee and chocolate roast are integrated with modest, sweeter notions. The finish is burnt and ashy with earthy hints, too.

The body is on the lighter side, but is oily and smooth to the point that it doesn't seem thin. Carbonation is moderate and well-matched to the body and flavors.

Overall, Steel Toe Stout is pretty solid. While I doubt I'd actively seek it out again, I wouldn't mind giving it another shake.
