3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown color with light brown foam head, lacing to glass. Pitty it was served too cold. Aroma is coffee, with some nut tones. Taste is bitter coffee and nice velvet feeling. Somewhat short aftertaste. (Houston 201301)

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma of roasted meat, yes meat. Roasted malts with hints of chocolate and coffee. Pours a dark rich brown with a mostly diminishing tan head and no lacing. The taste is initially like the nose - roasty. Some coffee notes present in the middle with a grainy finish and aftertaste. Medium body and medium carbonation. Overall, while not watery, I would have liked a little more body to be present. Stil,l this is an enjoyable Texas beer to look forward to each winter.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Clear black, slightly brownish around the edges, with a thin light khaki head. Delightful nose of chocolate, coffee, creaminess, and subtle roastiness. Flavor is equally incredible with creamy chocolatiness, a keen coffee tone, a slight bit of molasses and roastiness. Sweet and creamy but a little roasty and very full and well rounded.

Fruity soda like nose? Root beer? Slightly coying mid palate. 4th beer of the night. Not very exciting.

More than palatable little stout - not exactly a style to drink much of in Houston though!

I have always enjoyed this beer during the short time it is out. The unfortunate part about it is it always seems to give me heartburn. I have no idea why. It is on the lighter side as far as stouts go. Always nice to have around during Christmas.
