Notes / Commercial Description:
Dark as a locked cell at midnight, yet delightfully smooth. This rich stout is full bodied with roasted barley and chocolaty overtones, finishing with a slight sweetness that is your key to freedom and satisfaction. While the historic prison of Stillwater’s past is all but memory and lore, The Warden lives on to honor the rich colorful past and open new gates of handcrafted quality for you.

Love this beer when I'm looking for a lighter stout. Delicious hint of chocolate and crisp, refreshing taste.

Brilliant black with a smooth tan head with solid retention and minimal lacing. A smooth roasted aroma, coffee flavored with hints of caramel. A smooth mouthfeel with a lingering caramel aftertaste.

Poured into a chilled 16 oz beer glass. Pours black. Not much of a head on my pour. Smooth, low carbonation. Thin body. Sweet, creamy, milk stout. Not bad but didn't overly impress me.

Poured on-tap into shaker pint glass.
A: Pours a very dark brown-black with 1-2 inch head with excellent retention. Decent lacing too.
S: Very nice sweet roasty chocolate note with hints of cream, anise, leather, and tobacco.
T: Smooth sweet chocolate, anise, leather, tobacco...not quite up the aroma, but very close.
M: Light body. Roasted and darkly sweet.
D: A solid milk stout. Nice complexity with excellent drinkability.
