Deep Ellum Double Brown Stout ....

Tonight I am trying my first beer from a newer Texas brewery: Deep Ellum Brewing Company from Dallas, Texas.  The beer is their Double Brown Stout.  The twelve ounce bottle shows 7% ABV.

This beer poured with a medium to thick, rich brown head.  The beer color is a dark blackish brown, and only the slightest hint of light shows around the edges when the glass is held up to the light.  The aroma isn't heavy and chocolaty like I expected; there is actually a yeasty quality.  Also some brown sugar and caramel.  Maybe a hint of higher alcohol.  The taste has that yeasty quality as well, but that fades to the more chocolaty malt taste I expected at the end of the sip.  Toasty, nutty.  There are some hoppy higher notes in the middle.  A little thin in the mouth feel.  The aftertaste leaves you with a little bitter and toasted malt.  This beer seemed a little tame at first, but a lot more flavor developed as I got into it.
