Tap Nitro. Light to moderate toasted bread and coffee for the malt, light resin for the hops, light earth for the yeast, with a hint of toffee. Head is average size, creamy, biege, with thick yet slippery lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is very dark brown. Flavor starts slightly sweet and acidic, then finishes slightly sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium, creamy, with an almost flat carbonation. This Dry Stout really surprised me. Great aromas and a great palate equals a very enjoyable beer.

** Servie au nitro ** Une tête de mousse très crémeuse et persistante se dresse sur une bière d’un noir sans équivoque. Il est assez difficile de déceler quoi que ce soit au nez, étrangement, même en y plongeant le pif. Je finis par renifler quelques traces chocolatées et de café. Grâce au service au nitro, la bière est évidemment ultra nuageuse en bouche et les saveurs de chocolat et grain rôti sont bien propagées. La finale est plutôt sèche, ce qui contribue grandement à sa buvabilité. Simple, mais très efficace.

Deep brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt and some roast, but not much. Roasted malt taste, similar to a Guinness but tastes fresher and less blunt. A touch of bitterness in the finish. Not complicated, but really well done. On tap at Broken Barrel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
