A traditional stout using dark roasted malted barley to create a full-bodied ale. Rounded with the smooth flavor of oats, the addition of English Kent Goldings hops produces a creamy stout that has proven to be a favorite.

Thin head with good head retention and fair lacing. Very nutty roasted malt aroma with caramel and oats. Taste is nuts, caramel, chocolate, smoke. Medium bodied.

Dark brown pour, light creamy colored head. Aroma is a bit metallic...infected? Behind that I get some molasses, coffee and a little chocolate. Metallic flavor a bit of sourmash. Coffee, roasty. Dry. Nah.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Bottle... Pours pitch black with a tiny, creamy, beige head. No retention. Lots of milk chocolate in the nose with some dark cherries and caramel. The flavor is medium bitter with lots of burnt notes and no residual sweetness, even when warm. Just a hint of acidity. Light to medium-bodied with soft carbonation. Lengthy, burnt, moderately bitter finish. FlacoAlto provided the bottle!
