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

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.

PrinceofNessus (236) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 24, 2004
Dark brown in color. The head is brown. The smell should be roasted, but comes across kinda rotten. The flavor is tangy, and makes me cringe. Coffee.

Black and bubbly like cola, nose of metal, compost, old milk, and antifreeze. Seriously, the aroma is just screaming at me not to drink this stuff. The flavor isn't as bad, some old coffee with a pleasant finish.

Just not my stout of preference. Not finding it creamy. Full bodied, maybe. And it just seems lacking direction - not too chocolatey, not too roasty, not too hoppy. And not that any stout NEEDS to be TOO much of anything, but it just is kinda there, but NOT there at the same time.

UNCCTF (495) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2004
Bottled. Poured a translucent black with a mustard-yellow head. Pretty bad, in that the finish was just too abrasive - enough so to ruin the beer.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - MAR 9, 2004
A good beer, but I expect more from a stout. The finish is very astringent.

Pours a rich dark brown with a thin tan head. Sweet roasted malt aroma with a hint of milk chocolate. Body starts sugary sweet, goes through a carmely transition, and finishes with a warming, robust roasted coffee presence. I don't see what the problem with this is. It's a very drinkable and smooth beer that has a nice flavor to it.
