So the aroma has a bit of sweet to it, otherwise itís just a light beer scent. Color is nice medium yellow. Mouth had no creamy feel, just a lager feel. Tastes like a bud or miller with a little more quality. Not a good representative of the cream. Tap at brewery

Mitten Ned and George Oatmeal Stout
Compared to the Punchout Porter, itís a bit more bitter; not as smooth a mouth feel and aftertaste. Malty yes; perhaps a bit more at least in aftertaste. About as dark; at least to the naked eye. The mouthfeel is a bit more fizzy; not as smooth. Itís not like an old aged scotch. Itís like a younger more aggressive/abrasive mouthfeel sensation. Still smooth with an enjoyable bitterness that doesnít last long as the malt comes through the aftertaste.

Mitten Vanilla Milk Stout
A dark opaque beer. Malty. Aroma of vanilla with a slight bitterness at first but strong malt finish. Heavy drink. Good for sipping over a fair amount of time, not to be rushed. Supposedly cocoa flavors - I suppose so; that taste is coffee-sequel but not coffee. Earthy yes. Spicy no. Definitely take your time. Smooth mouth feel with no lingering aftertaste. Food flavors will come through this beer, not overpowering.

Okay. Crispish & light. Not too flavorful. Slight bitterness, not much. Light aroma. Light gold in color. Could drink all afternoon but wouldnít want to because I like more flavor.

Mitten Maple Label Up Pecan Brown
From notes. Enjoyed this at HopCat with Tara before the Wings game on April 19. This one is about as plain as it comes. There is a dark garnet colored pout with a thin ring of light tan head and no lace. The aroma is lightly sweet, carries a little nuttiness, but for the most part smells like water. There isnít really any roast to join in, and the nuttiness is light. The maple I was expecting to be a bit heavier (since itís in the damn name) but itís a huge disappointment. The flavors are just as disappointing, if not a little more so. It tastes like itís pecan water with a light roastiness, and the smallest amount of detectable maple on the planet. This one just isnít good. The mouth feel is that like youíd expect with a brown. Itís thin and light with a soft carbonation and a lingeringly sweet, nutty finish. I wish this had some damn maple in here. Christ.
