A Brewer's Reserve, I like that they didn't follow the temptation of most American brewers and pile in the hops instead of working up a good malt backbone.

Since this brewery mostly cans, I won't write about what it looks like or smells like through a small hole. But it has a nice blend of roasted malts and, as I said, restrained use of hops.
It is a pleasant stout and one I will seek out again.

Flavor starts slightly sweet with a little malt. Ends with a not unpleasant chemical flavor. No hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl. Very little like a stout, more of a brown ale.
