Tap @Beer Works Canal Street
Dark opaque ruby/black color. Nice creamy beige head. Hints of cocoa and caramel in the nose. Light to medium bodied. Coffeish, tobacco, almost too harsh, but certainly tastier than Guinness.

Had on tap at the source. To pint, it pours a ruby-tinted rusted brown with a creamy, tan head 1˝ fingers in length. Wow. This is weird shit: tastes and smells remarkably of used cigarette butts, fertilizer, coal, and toast crumbs. Vague hints of leather and and yeast by swallow. Watery and bitter. Avoid.

Should it be black with a creamy tan head? Bland, slightly roasted malt taste. Watery palate, all too common with these New England stouts. The white blanket lacing is a redeeming quality when you’re seeking solace in the glass.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On cask at the Fenway location. Arrived at the table black with a moderate light brown head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of roasted malt with notes of chocolate. The flavor is predominantly roasted malt with just a hint of chocolate. Mild bitterness at the finish. On the light side of medium bodied. Solid.

Clear dark red brown beer, creamy beige head, unstable, little adhesive. Aroma: mocha, sweet malts, earthy, smoke, tobacco. MF: soft to no carbon, medium body, creamy texture. Taste: sour berries, mocha, bit of cola, coffee. Aftertaste: citrus sour, coffee bitter. Misses some malty body to lift everything up a bit.
