Draught, 6.1%. Coffee-like aroma, a little sweet. Black colour, small stable light brown head. The flavour is roasted, has a little coffee. Some roast barley bitterness. A bit of alcohol which also gives it an OK solid mouthfeel.

Tap at Dive Bar. Pitch black pour. Creamy tan head. The nose is fairly cocoaish. Lightly chewy with a nice rich almost herbal back note to the chocolate. Herbal and quite hoppy on the back. Chewy and lightly earthy. Softly hoppy but itís not really all that compelling.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Daveís Bellport Cold Beer and Soda. Pours black with a brown head that leaves a coating of foam on the glass with each sip. The beer itself leaves a film on the glass with each sip all the way to the end. Strong aroma of coffee (probably one of the strongest aromas of coffee Iíve experienced with no coffee actually present in the beer) along with some smokey notes and roasted malt. The flavor is more centered on the smokiness with wood smoke and a good dash of peat. Roasted malt and mild coffee in the flavor as well. Very enjoyable stout.

Flavor of roasted malts and roasted nuts, light smoke, and a hint of bitter chocolate, light bitter hops. A hoppy, roasted stout, very delicious! Excellent stout.

I read about Barrier Brewing in the Ale Street News, and I have been curious to taste what they have been up to. This was on tap at RnH, but I find myself wondering if the staff poured me the right brew. This had a very light color for a stout. The sweet, malty aroma was pleasant indeed. The flavor was good, but much closer to an amber than a stout. Iím still scratching my head a little over this one.
