3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Black with a fluffy beige head. Aroma of a typical simple dry stout: roasted black malts, a touch of bakers chocolate, and a whiff of biscuit, maybe coriander, kinda unsure...taste was the same. Dry bready chocolaty roasted black malts, with a subtle smooth hint of wheat, or oat, or coriander...something along those lines. Light in body, true to style but still disappointing.

Nitro at the brewery, so obviously it looks pretty - flavors of light mineral and even a hint of brine up front make way for moderately bittersweet chocolate flavors, strong roasty notes, toasted maltiness and dark malt bitterness - finish has a mildly acidic touch, as the light mineral notes returns - lingering coffee-like bitterness - a little high in abv for a dry stout, but this is pretty damn tasty.
