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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours clear ruby hazel, pretty not dark for a stout. Small fizzy tan head that dissipates quickly leaving some lacing. At least its a pretty color. Aroma is roasty, cocoa, some spices. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, toffee, roast and a bit of spice. Light acidity, some dark bready notes. Light body for style. Meh

12 oz bottle from a friend, thanks Nims! Pretty much black with a tan head, mostly dissipating, minimal lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, light coffee and chocolate. Similar flavor, medium sweetness and light bitterness. Medium body with a creamy feel and soft carbonation. Not bad.

On draught at United Club at IAH Terminal C. Pours an opaque brown with good. Parity and fine bubble tan head. Complex aromas and flavors complement the big mealtimes. Full body, even dry/sweet overall flavor balance. Ok

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Roasted malt. Toast. A little sweetness. Pours a little thin. Dark with a tan head that disappears pretty quick. Really light bodied. REALLY light. In what universe are we calling this a winter stout. It's not bad. A little sweetness. Some toast. Dry finish.

D&Q Beer Mart, H-Town 12oz: Pours Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is vague chocolate with some roasty malts. Taste is slightly sweet and slightly chocolatey. Not really much to it and not really that complex. Plenty drinkable though.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
No head, weak palate, bittersweet without any discernible flavors. Way too light to be what it says it is. This is what you would expect from a stout made in Texas, or any other hot weather climate for that matter. Pass.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Unknown brew/bottle date.
A: Pours dark brown with cherry candy highlight thru the light. single finger loose latte head dissipates quickly and leaves a thin sheet of the same. No lacing.
S: coffee, cocoa, prunes, fig, graham malts. Hints of resiny hops and what smells like over steeped simcoes. Nice creamy smell here as well.
T: Coffee porter is what this tastes like, not stout. Nonetheless, good, malty, roasty profile with dark cocoa nibs, raisins. Good beer.
M: medium body with medium/high carb.
O: Well done, not great, but above average. If I were in Houston, and this was on tap, I would likely drink again.

On tap at the Railroad Seafood Station Brewing Company.
Not quite black pour, off-white head. Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee. It was a little lighter than most stouts, but otherwise very typical flavor.
All in all, just average.
