Tall can poured into a mug. Nearly pitch black with just a slight orange-red halo at the bottom of the glass. Nice creamy light brown head that starts huge and tones itself down to a manageable two fingers.

Nose features a nice toasted oat cereal vibe, with some dark coffee and a tinge of ash. This beer won an award in 2014 and I can see why. Has that oat astringency, pleasantly tempered by milk chocolate, coffee beans, walnut shells, cola, pretzels, and a hint of grassy, earthy hops. Slight caramel and raisin. Porter-like in its gentle roastiness (relative to many other stouts, that is) and light to moderate body. Quite smooth and creamy with gentle carbonation. Not ashy or tannic initially but these qualities accumulate over time, particularly in the dryish finish.

My first brew from these guys and I'm more than impressed enough to sample others. Flavorsome yet drinkable, approachable, and low key without being dull. Seems traditionally English to me.

Serving: 355 mL bottle poured into a small tulip glass.

Appearance: Deep, dark and nearly black. A modest head of khaki foam lingers as a fringe and leaves some lacing.

Smell: Roasted and slightly smoky malt and coffee.

Toast: Complex roasted malt and coffee continue from the nose with medium chocolate sweetness. Very slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Medium body and carbonation. Feels light relative to its other characteristics.

Overall: Nice, complex roasted malt qualities in an otherwise very drinkable and relatively light stout.
