this dark brew had a very minimal snow white head that like magic disappeared almost instantly leaving zero lacing down glass
a hint of roasted grains no hop and a touch heavy with diacetyl aromas
the flavor followed the aromas with zero hop a hint of roasted grain and a bit thick on the butterscotch diaceyl
thin as a stout gets in a bad way
i found this brew to be unpleasant

Served this American Stout on-tap, in a pint glass, at the brewery. The Stout poured a dark brown color and produced a thin tan head. Retention was poor and only minimal amounts of lacing were left behind. The aroma was very faint...small amounts of roasted malt and coffee were present. The taste had a mild roasted malt base, coffee and it was slightly bitter. Medium in body, just overall....not much to get excited. Another safe, bland beer from Trailhead.

A: Dark brown with a decent tan head that faded slowly to a light lacing.

S: Very faint aroma primarily of roasted malt.

T: Light coffee with a mild malt taste and very slight bitterness.

F: Medium body but not the creamy texture I would expect from a stout.

D: Another unoffensive brew from the Trailhead Brewery. Not a beer that I would go out of my way for. This seems to be a beer that blends well a meal more than as a stand alone brew.

pours a dark black color. 1/2 inch head of a light tan color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of roasted malts and a general sweetness. Fits the style of an American Stout. Thick and bubbly mouth feel, bitterness and carbonation levels so high it was hard to drink. Tastes of roasted malts up front and strongly in finish. A distinct grass flavor in the middle of the beer. Also, picked up some strong malts in the background. Overall, the grass flavor and the carbonation detract from the beer. Not a real good example of a stout.
