On Draft at Ballydoyle Bloomingdale. This beer is great, they bill it is a belgian style stout, not sure if that is what i would call it. Dark black in color, yet very clear. It drinks a lot lighter than i was expecting. Nice head out of the draft and into an allagash glass. I get some of the chocolate and roasted notes, very hard to describe, but it is the best beer i have had this year so far for sure.

Aroma is of malt and slight hops. A little mollasses and oats. Full and silky on the plate, the flavor is reminiscent of coffee with yeast. I love it!

Comes out of the tap a deep opaque sable with a fairly thick tan head - very appetizing. Aroma is like well-roasted mocha and has just a hint of caramel. Flavor is rich and ’’stouty’’ - smoky with strong coffee and unsweetened chocolate components - and has just a touch of sweetness. Finish is smooth and very pleasing. A winner!

caramel, bread, chocolate, nuts, toast, roasty, amber, red, brown, black, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour, umami, full body, creamy, thick feel, lively.
A stout that comes as close to perfect as you can get. The only thing stopping it is that it just doesn’t quite have the mouthfeel that a dark brew should, as if they held back giving it that motor oil feel. Do not be fooled though. This beer is top notch. Pair this with a good brat on a cold day.

Pours dark w/ a full lasting head and superb lacing. Aromas of cocoa and dark fruit. Medium nectar w/ creamy, expansive residual effers. Beautifully balanced flavors of cocoa and darkfruit intermingle w/ a moderate roast component. A striking hop profile bitters this to a classic level. The finish lingers. One awesome brew!
