Got this beer from a judging event I helped out at. 12oz bottle...
A: A dark beer with red hues shining through the edges. A 2+ inch tan head that fades quickly to small bubbles atop the brew. Very good.
S: I get a mild roastiness upfront with a hint of earthy hop in the middle. Some mild vanilla and maltiness on the back. Ok.
T: I get a very acidic, almost vinegary roast upfront. A creamy vanilla in the middle with a mild saltiness on the backend. Kind of odd.
M: Medium body with a heavy carbonation. A vinegary finish.
O: All in all, I'm not sure I can drink all of this. The vinegar taste throws the entire thing off. Not really a great stout.

At the pub, in my stein, 10-4-09
A nice way to end my sunday stein night run at the pub. The color is a dark brown, but not entirely opaque like I had expected, there are hints of deep auburn as well. The nose is really really roasty! Hints of chocolate, more than a hint of roasted malt, it smells like a toasted dark chocolate cake...even a touch like ST's Choklat but not as all as sweet or overpowering.
The body is thinner than I would expect from a stout, but given how it looked a bit lighter in body before I even sipped I wasn't totally surprised. The lighter body, but by no means thin, made this even more enjoyable I think. The roasted chocolate is not entirely as pronounced in the taste as the aroma, but still there, with some vanilla and creamy tones that work well together.
Nice to have a dark beer/stout offering that isn't a meal in a glass!

On tap 10.13.06, served in a pint glass.
Near opaque coal in color, beneath a soft creamy sheet. Condensed lacing with good strength until the last sip. Milk chocolate, grape, date, light vanilla, and a touch of smoke in aroma. Begins with a light cream and vanilla extract that melds into a light, milk chocolate. Notes of dark fruit: plum, grape, even a touch of raisin. Faintly bitter, with an aftertaste of grape, oak, and coffee beans. Pillowy light on the palate for a dry stout: who says a "dark" beer can't be light on the palate? A mild stout without stones. The craftsmenship is definitely found here in the subtleties.
