12floz bottle, no date, $1.75 unit cost, tulip glass. This is a dark beer with a light brown head, and smells like metal. Perhaps I shouldn't trust the mix-six selection at unnamed store, because this may be old beer. It's a winter seasonal, and they often hit the shelves in November. So who knows for sure. I don't, there's no freshness date. As is, it's just watery dirt water beer to me. Sure it's drinkable, but lacks stout character. I don't know how to describe this as it ain't interesting. So it's not exactly showing off by being lackluster and veering from style. I didn't describe the palate well, but I perceive a slight vinegar trait. This isn't a good sign of a quality brew, from a brewery known for such in its breadwinner beers.

12-ounce bottle pours dark brown with zero head or lacing. Aroma: prune juice, pureed raisins, chocolate, malt vinegar. Flavor: black coffee, dark chocolate, dates, campfire marshmallows. Mouthfeel: medium-bodied, some oatmeal creaminess. I've had many other beers from this brewery and loved most of them, but this one is just ho-hum, although I suspect it might be a past-date bottle I got from my retailer is more the problem.

Draught pour- pours pitch black with minimal head but nice latticing. Subtle roasted malts on the nose. Dark roasted malt, ashy on the tongue not much depth. Pretty level in taste throughout an ok stout.

On tap at 40 Brews. It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roasted malts, dark fruits, coffee and chocolate. The taste was similar to the aroma with more roasted malts, dark fruits, coffee, chocolate and a nice smooth bitter aftertaste. Good stuff.

Bottle. Coffee, raisin, chocolate malt, and hay aroma. Black with large brown head. Mildly sweet raisin, chocolate malt, and mildly bitter ash/hay flavor. Good body - mild carbonation. Pretty good.

It is a lovely pour, soft mouthfeel, w/ a kind of a bland flavor. It’s easily drinkable w/ that great feel but a little more flavor could make this a masterpiece!
