Pours a dark brown with tan head. Roasted malt is foremost on the nose, with a little chocolate and a hint of coffee; follows onto the palate. Finishes with more roasted flavors. Solid stout. bnwokedi89 (106) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Texas winter stout that falls a bit short in flavour. St. Arnold does a good job with the consistency and complexion of this offering but the execution on the taste component leaves a bit to be desired. hotstuff (5144) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 22, 2014
Rated on 02-18-2013 at Saint Arnold B.C. This bottled beer pours a small creamy, smooth tan head that mostly diminishes, opaque body and no carbonation. The aroma is roasted malt, spicy, chocolate, and light coffee. The flavor mimics the aroma. The mouthfeel is smooth and thin. This beer is light bodied. Overall, this beer is very thin bodied for the style. bytemesis (8250) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear ruby hazel, pretty not dark for a stout. Small fizzy tan head that dissipates quickly leaving some lacing. At least its a pretty color. Aroma is roasty, cocoa, some spices. Flavor is medium sweet, light bitter, toffee, roast and a bit of spice. Light acidity, some dark bready notes. Light body for style.

Bottle - Light sweet chocolate notes. Jet black with a thin beige head. Light chocolate and roast malts. Sweet and a little lacking in complexity, but decent.

12 oz bottle from a friend, thanks Nims! Pretty much black with a tan head, mostly dissipating, minimal lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, light coffee and chocolate. Similar flavor, medium sweetness and light bitterness. Medium body with a creamy feel and soft carbonation. Not bad. tomciccateri (1034) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JAN 27, 2014
On draught at United Club at IAH Terminal C. Pours an opaque brown with good. Parity and fine bubble tan head. Complex aromas and flavors complement the big mealtimes. Full body, even dry/sweet overall flavor balance. Ok sjohnny (627) - - JAN 10, 2014
Roasted malt. Toast. A little sweetness. Pours a little thin. Dark with a tan head that disappears pretty quick. Really light bodied. REALLY light. In what universe are we calling this a winter stout. It's not bad. A little sweetness. Some toast. Dry finish. mansquito (6338) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JAN 8, 2014
D&Q Beer Mart, H-Town 12oz: Pours Dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is vague chocolate with some roasty malts. Taste is slightly sweet and slightly chocolatey. Not really much to it and not really that complex. Plenty drinkable though. JustPlainLogan (58) - Galveston, Texas, USA - JAN 1, 2014
No head, weak palate, bittersweet without any discernible flavors. Way too light to be what it says it is. This is what you would expect from a stout made in Texas, or any other hot weather climate for that matter. Pass.
