Just an average Stout. Nothing new but it is worthy.

I did not find this to be especially bitter as described. Actually, I found the maltiness to smooth out this stout, making it a very enjoyable quaff. The moderate ABV also contributes to the smoothness in a way higher alochol would likely not. This would be my choice whne spending an afternoon in conversations with friends.

these guys have just blasted beer into the colorado market. it is everywhere now, on tap and in bottles, and while i was a little slow on the uptake at first, given the price points and apparent quality inconsistency, i am fully on board now, and am very glad they are here. this is a pretty standard stout in style, but it has some cool nuances, one of them being its almost milk stout silky body, oats could be responsible, but this has such a slick feel, its incredible. less frothy and more still. but it works super well with what else is going on here. flavor is not overly complex, but i taste some raisin in there with the dark barley, light drip coffee tones, and a surprising degree of milk chocolate, like melting M&M candy. the feel is about medium on the sweetness, and i now feel the caramel malt more than i tasted it. burning sugar and sweet molasses as this dies out, but not coating the teeth. the texture makes it for me, but the beer is really good on the whole. i had this one on tap, and have yet to see it packaged, but i would probably buy this again if the price was reasonable.

A really dark rich stout with a nice, almost crisp, hop taste. I have been enjoying black IPA's lately, and this one leans toward that taste, while maintaining the feel of the stout. With 8" of snow on the ground a stout is always a good choice.
