Dark dark brown with creamy tan head. Smells of oat, chocolate and cream. Taste is craemy chocolate and oatmeal. Roasty and smoked as well. Body is light. For a 5% stout, what you see is what you get. Nice beer, would be great if the body kicked up and maybe a bit more in the abv.

From can. Dark brown, almost black. Thin, tan head. Boozy nose withvsome toasted malt. Typical stout, though the cream negates a lot of the smokiness on the back end. Not bad.

Had a sample of this. Aroma: roasted malts, chocolate, maybe some roasted nuts. Taste was the same, but a sweetness comes into it. Good balance. A good beer.

UPDATED: FEB 3, 2016 This is my first try at the sweetgrass brewery. This beer is pretty good, don’t mistake it for guiness, but it actually has a better flavor to me. I know that is blasphemy but I think think one has just tastes better.

The cream does go a crazy long way in this beer. The roasted maltiness adds a great chocolate flavor that the sugar balances out.

Pours very dark red with an ivory head. The nose is mostly chocolate a touch of coffee, as you would expect. Tastewise, chocolate dominates, with a nice sweet background that fills out the body and makes this a very easy beer to drink. Very nice.
