This traditional dry stout is brewed with 2-row and dark roasted malts, producing a nutty, chocolaty aroma, balanced with English hops to give it just the right balance of flavors.

On tap at brewpub, pours a clear dark black with a brown head. Doesn’t leave too much lace. Smell is of nuts and chocolate. Taste is coffee and chocolate with a nice dry finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from Brewpub. Pours black with a decent sized off white head that doesn’t last too long. Smell is chocolate malt with a bookstore coffee shop aroma (coffee, sweet grains, a little fresh paper/cardboard). Taste has an earthy bitterness, but not hopsy. Roast malt, coffee and chocolate. Body is really smooth. Medium to heavy. Oddly sessionable for a stout. Dry. Overall: A better stout than most available in the area. Nice coffee roastiness.
