Not a bad stout from half acre. I like this one better than big hugs from half acre. It is a little less coffee tasting ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ICEatALAMO (938) - Troy, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle. The pour is dark with a little head around the rim. The aroma is all malt, smells yummy. The taste is also a big malt bomb. Thin, but not disappointedly thin. A nice drinking stout that I could drink all day.

22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malts, dark chocolate, earthy notes, char, a subtle char and wood. Pretty straight forward stout with some decent finishing touches.

Bottle. Poured black color with an average brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet toasted flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good complex stout.

22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99- thanks again, Tom! Pours a deep brown with a small tan head. Notes of chocolate, milk powder, roast, leaves, earth, and tobacco. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a roasty mouthfeel. Just a well-done stout.

Bomber to snifter (thanks Tmoney99). Looks good; a dark and fairly opaque cola with light beige lacing. Smells solid; dark malt and roast with a touch of chocolate. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A solid stout.
