UPDATED: JAN 5, 2005 Rerate After drinking most of the six of this, my enthusiasm is somewhat diminishing, has somewhat of a gassy taste to it, still a decent stout though and the mouthfeel is just a tad chalky Original 3.4 Picked up a six at Whole Foods in Austin, Tx. Pours a dark, ruby red with a tight coating of khaki foam with decent lacing. Aroma has some chocolate notes with a bit of coffee ingering in the background. Flavor has some of the same notes with a delectable fruity undertone with a bit of maple syrup to round it out. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy and finishes strong. A good winter warmer.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2008 2006 bottle. Pours a dark rouge black. Very little head. Roasted coffee notes with some chocolate on the taste. A bit fuller than when I rated before, but still thin for my taste...medium-light bodied. Goes down smooth and has a nice after taste though.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2004
Bottle. Nose smells like a musty chocolate store and is kind of sour. Taste is bitter up front with some thin roasted chocolate notes. There is a sourness present that is not very good. Overall it is just a wee but thin. The nose just reminds me too much of spoiled chocolate milk. This brewery has much, much better beer.

very thin for the style .. roasted taste is all the way through, a bit watery and below avarage for the style

Caramel, toffee, coffee, hops... Too thin for the nice coffee roasted malts and hops though...

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2004
UPDATED: APR 17, 2005 A very approachable offering for the style... I would like to have this one on tap at the brauerei to make a final judgement. The malt is chocolate and a bit smoky, with hints of coffee. If there are hops in here, they are drowned out by the complexities in the malt. Not bad.

Thanks to Mjames for sending me this Winter Stout!

Pours a body that is mostly black but edges of crimson.. the kaki head is fluffy and resilient. Has a nice chocolate malt aroma.. some lactic notes along with coffee and toffee. The flavor brings the big suggestions of cold coffee. Toasty… with some nutty-ness and burned woods… maybe a note of dates and figs there in the finish. The palate is pretty weak… far too thin for a stout.. but it’s certainly drinkable!

Medium sized light brown head, decent retention and lace. Main body is black with red highlights at the edges. Faint roast and coffee nose. Med/full body. Medium sweet malt flavors, good roast, hints of fruit and black malt also. Medium sweet finish.
