On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Near black in color but definitely dark brown, especially near the edges with a very thin light brown head. It doesn't leave much stick on the glass and looks a bit thin and watery as I agitate it.

Nice collection of aromas consisting of chocolate, roasted malt, and some earthy oat character. The best aspect of this beer.

A lot of the more interesting elements found in the aroma, namely the chocolate, is tough to find in the flavor. This is a simple, roasty stout with a bit of oat and coffee flavors. Simple and drinkable.

Thin to medium mouthfeel with low carbonation.

A simple, somewhat thin, roasty stout with a very nice chocolatey aroma.

On tap at Stone's 15th Anniversary

A: Black with a light brown head.

S: Roasted malts, oats, dark chocolate and (no joke) dog food.

T: Coffee, roasted malt and a touch of licorice. There was nothing particularly "wrong" with this beer, but it just didn't wow me. The flavors didn't jump out at all.

On tap at Mother Earth.

A: Near black, with a big creamy light brown head and nice retention.

S: Lightly roasted malt with a nice chocolate profile. There's a hint of coffee and a little nuttiness. Low earthy quality and no evident alcohol.

T: Nice chocolate profile with a little oatmeal and a restrained roast. Very smooth and soft, with alcohol being well masked. Low earthy bitterness and a touch of nutty character. The chocolate finish is dry and there's a dash of coffee.

T: Medium in body with moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel is smooth, silky, and soft.

Overall: A tasty beer. Very smooth with a nice chocolate profile.
