Draught. Not a stout I would go for again. This is a bit thin and not roasty enough for my taste.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours pitch black and leaves the same color body. With a nice foamy one inch mocha colored head, it gently dies to concave lumpiness. Spotty spiderweb lacing is left. The smell is smoky and roasty with the coffee up front, some really light vanilla enters in as the beer warms. The taste is light and gives quite a bit of hops and burnt bread, some coffee, pine and hops enter gently in. The palate is light and bitter, close to watery. There is a good dry finish and a bitter and dry aftertaste. It is fairly drinkable. Overall, not bad, but not memorable, might get it again depending upon what else was offered.

Bottle from Hop City Birmingham - pours cola with a tan head. Aroma is hop forward, which is weird in a stout. Taste leans bitter. Overall, I’m not feeling this one.

22oz bottle $5.99. Dark black, sizable brown head. Smells like a stout but nothing wowed me. The taste was rich stout with a distinct pine on the back end, very intriguing and I wonder what varieties of hops were used in this beer. Overall this beer was a very good value for the money.
