Roswell Alien Amber

Faint, decent aroma - picked up maple syrup & lesser notes of caramel.

Opens with tart toasted/bready malts & nuttiness. Hop profile is mild to non-existent, slight tea flavor. It's a typical amber ale, perhaps a bit sweeter.

Mildly carbonated, thin mouthfeel. This would be a good session beer, fairly generic. Not bad.

International Stout Day - November 2013

I like my beer like I like my men: tall, dark and handsome.  What is the darkest beer of them all?  Well hello, stout!

Originally, stout meant “proud” or “brave”, but morphed into the connotation of “strong” after the 14th century. So, why on earth should this handsome, brave and strong beer style not have its own day of celebration?  

Happily, it does.
