Ernest (7601) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2017
Bottle (Jan 2017 bottling, as "Jeff Stout", aka "Big Beef Stout"). Head is initially average sized, frothy, brown, mostly lasting. Body is black (non-opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, coffee), with a note of minerals. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively/soft carbonation. This is much more of a dry stout than anything, really. Its not even remotely a sweet stout IMHO, and Im more sensitive to overly sweet beers than most folks. Roasty-minerally nose certainly makes me think of an Irish stout, and the 4.5% and light body suggest the same. Its more sour than bitter, but plenty of UK examples are pretty tart too. I dont get any of the sweet potato or lactose (thankfully on both). Hi, Jeff! *<8^)

On tap Ole Saint. A touch thinner than I like and with a slight acrid finish on the roasted flavours.

Idiosynkrasie (7231) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 12, 2016
355ml bottle. Almost black colour with dark ruby glimmer and average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, beige to tan head. Roasty, chocolately, dark malty aroma, sweet-ish hints of burnt caramel, hints of molasses, a nuttily touch. Taste is bitter, roasty dark malty, minimally papery, mineral and ashy, residual sweetness, a touch of burnt coffee.

From a 12 oz bottle/ Pours near black with a big tan head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing. Nose of chocolate malts. Medium body and a lactose mouth feel. Flavor is mostly roast chocolate malts. Finishes sweet. Pretty good.

Poured from the bottle. Color is dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is sweet, with notes of chocolate, roasted malt, earth, and sweetness. Taste is sweet and roasty. Its hard to pick up a whole lot of the sweet potato, but still very enjoyable.

Might be a Winter seasonal, but it held up, in my opinion, besides Im too excited to get my 49th state of the USA in for a beer, no way, am I about to let this beer review slip away. This was poured into an English pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a thin white to off white foamy cap of a head. No lacing. The aroma starts off with some roasty coffee bean, marshmallow, then toffee, creamy espresso sweetness comes in nicely to round out. Light cocoa bean plays in the background. The flavor returns the roasty coffee bean to blend nicely into the sweet marshmallow and toffee. Dry sweet aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice semi-sessionable feel to it. Dry roastiness seems to hit decently. Overall, good milk/sweet stout I could have again. Just glad to knock off a Mississippi beer finally. Only one more state to have a beer from all 50.

Brownish beer. Coffee, caramel, tart and sweet potatoes come back in taste and aroma. Funny.
