Draft. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, with slightl lacing, over a dark brown (SRM 30) clear body......nose is cocoa, chocolate, coffee from the roasted malts, slight hop herbal note, balance to the malts.....taste is light lactose type sweetness to start, then cocoa, chocolate, coffee from the roasted malts, finishing dry, with a moderate, hop, roasted malt bitterness......mouth feel medium, with a creamy body, no alcohol, mild acidity. This is a well made but still relatively light Stout. The oatmeal, while present in the creaminess, is slightly lacking in the body, and a bit more in the malt bill would not be remiss.

On tap at Smokin’ Dave’s in Estes. Appearance: finger dark brown head, dark brown color, clear, ok lacing, head does not last. Aroma: roast, chocolate, light molasses, undertones of floral hoppiness. Palate: Full body, creamy texture and carbonation, light bitter finish. Taste: sweet chocolate and nuttiness into a light, floral bitterness that lasts for a bit. Overall, the transition from full body to lighter finish is very unique and very well done. Very enjoyable beer. monk191 (2022) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2014
Another great stout. Pours a very nice dark brown with a tan head. Smells of vanilla. Taste is very smooth, lots of vanilla, a bit of coffee, and not as bitter of a finish as the imperial. Had on tap at the brewery. Crispy34 (496) - Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2014
