poured a deep brown with a nice amount of tan head (great lacing). smells of vanilla, coffee, cocoa, caramel. very sweet in taste.. basically tastes like cafe con leche.. with a few sugars. hints of toffee, subtleness of toasted grains.. a very nice light tasting, medium bodied stout with a creaminess to it that makes you thirstier and thirstier! overall, a really good light tasting stout - honestly perfect for the fall/winter months.

A rather weak looking stout. Color is primarily a dark mahogany; clear and not really opaque. The thin head disappeared quickly leaving only a small ring around the top of the glass.

The smell has promise. Dark, roasted malts with hints of chocolate, toffee, and some dark roast coffee hints. I didn't really pick up any noticeable hop notes.

The taste is there for a stout. Burnt toast and darkly roasted grain. A very pleasant bitterness - a bit subtle, yet reinforcing the and nicely complementing the grain characteristics. There is a nice overarching sweetness from beginning to end, adding a richness to the beer that isn't suggested by its rather anemic appearance.

The body is medium, smooth, and sweet.

Despite a rather weak appearance, this is a great tasting stout, delivering a robust, hardy taste profile. As a winter stout, the flavors are there. I didn't notice any aggressive alcohol notes or warmth, so the grain characteristics take center stage on this one. This one is worth a repeat visit...

thanks to tim in houston for the beer trade that brought me a six of this brew...
