COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The tan lace clings to the glass as you raise the pint to your lips. Close your eyes and smile as the rich espresso notes fade to a dry, roasted finish. Exceptionally smooth and satisfying. Made with English Pale malt, roasted barley, black patent malt, and flaked barley. Hopped with East Kent Goldings and Target hops, and fermented with our English ale yeast.

nickd717 (3569) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 6, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Pours dark brown with a well-formed two-finger beige head. Aroma is roast, coffee, molasses, and hops. Flavor is a little weak, but hell, it is 3.8%. Roasted malt, coffee, molasses, slight caramel, and nuts. Pretty watery on the palate. Would like more body to it. Overall this is a nice "session stout" if there is such a thing, but not my first pick by any means if Iím at Yazoo.

Rustyham (1732) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2010
Pitch black color with a dark brown head- this is darker than most any dry stout Iíve seen. Aroma is lightly roasted malt and mineral water. Flavor is thin and smooth. Slight hoppiness makes it taste like an ESB. Very drinkable, but a little too thin. On Tap at Yazoo Brewery.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 5, 2010
Lacing tan head with a dark brown body. Aromas of coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is much the same. Little thin but dry finish.

MmmcKay (1052) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - MAY 6, 2010
Roasted malts and coffee flavors. Dry as can be. Decent amount of hops for a stout. Liked that. Slightly watery and one note. Didnít like that. This is a weak stout in flavor and alcohol content. Needs improvement.

swenocha (81) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - APR 23, 2010
Taproom. Dark pour, little to no head. Smells and tastes of coffee, roast, caramel or molasses. Piney/earthy hopped subtly. Thinner than expected. A bit of smokiness. Really like...

phaleslu (6790) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 12, 2010
Draft pint at the new brewery. Pours a nice dark coffee brown with a tiny tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of roasted malts, espresso, brown sugar, toast, and caramel. The flavor is also roasty and dry, with notes of espresso, brown sugar, and caramel. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, roasty finish. Very solid, straight-up-the-middle dry stout.

Opaque black pour with a thin tan head. Caramel and roasted malt aroma. Flavor is nutty with some dark coffee notes. Mostly dry with a touch of light, milky sweetness. Very good.

Butters (3843) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2009
Sampled on nitro at the brewery. Deep mahogany pour with solid dark tan head. Aroma is roasty mocha. Flavor is nice up front, bitter coffee, lactic acidity, sweetness, with a dry finish. I found the body to be very watery though, despite the nitro.
