Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.40%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
With eleven different grains used in the brewing process, this is one of the more complex stouts out there. Several different roasted barleys, wheat, oats and caramelized grains yield hints of bread, toffee, dark fruits, chocolate and coffee. Just enough hops for balance and traditional English yeast for true stout character.

Got a pint at the bar.
This beer looks fantastic. Rich black, with a beautiful chocolate milk colored head. Lots of lacing as the head fades.

Nose is gentle malts. Not much else there.

Taste is all malts. Lingering maltiness, a bit of toasty flavors. Very mild.

Mouthfeel is ok. Creamy, but in an odd way that doesn't add anything.

I like this beer, but I don't see what some of the other reviewers saw. Perhaps it varies from batch to batch?

Smooth drinking stout. A little light on body but with a nice brown large bubble head. Smokey notes with roasted malt flavours. A session stout if you will.

Pours a black color. 1/2 inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of dry hops, dry malt, hint of roasted malt, slight yeast, and slight alcohol. Fits the style of an American Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with a low carbonation level. There is also a noticeable dryness. Tastes of alcohol, sweet malt, dry hops, dry malt, yeast, and alcohol. Overall, good appearance with the aroma and body dominated by dry malts.

16 ounce pint - $5.50 at the Wrecking Bar Brewpub in Atlanta, Georgia.

Appearance: Delivered to my corner seat at the bar a near-black body with a bubbly, blotched head displaying a medium sandy-toned hue. Very thin smattering of lace on the way down.

Smell: Noted notes of chocolate and toasted loaf bread, a splash of chilled coffee, a singular drop of vanilla, and a very minute background hint of fruity citrus.

Taste: Sweet-tasting chocolate mixed with sugar-sweetened coffee and layered over lightly toasted bread. Faint hint of licorice. Some dark fruitiness lingering within. Modestly bitter, with the hops yielding a bit of candied lemon. Drying and with a bit more citrus and chocolate on the smooth finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It's good, it's tasty, and plenty flavorful without needing to stoop to the tawdry lows of cheap tricks and base gimmickry.

Update (7/26/11): Seems the second batch has notably upped the citrus character and hop bitterness, which I didn't care for as much.
