Pretty strong for a "mild stout". Biting aftertaste reminds me of a sour milk stout. Definitely notice some brown sugar and earthy tones in this one. Rated 9/20/08

bhensonb (14092) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 26, 2006
Aroma of rich dark fruit. Really fantastic. Deep reddish brown with a truly significant tan head. Starts with plum, moving to toasted malt, notes of chocolate, always an edge of sour. Substantial mouthfeel. There’s sweetness, but more caramel/toffee than malty. Well balanced with bitterness. Definitely not a Belgian candy treat. Just fantastic. I repeat myself. Justified.
