Draft nitro sample at the source. The beer is a dark brown to black with a creqmy head of khaki foam. The aroma has nutty and coffee undertones with a mellow roasty character as well. Medium roasty sweetness. Medium body, thicker mouthfeel, and moderate carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap @ Country Boy / Lexington KY --- Opaque black/brown color, ivory head cover, curtain of lace. Taste is smooth toasted malt that quickly moves to medium bittering and black coffee that lasts through a long finish. Bracing in an understated sort of way, certainly not overwhelming. A solid, low abv stout

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Nitro at the brewery. Like the stout, this has an odd color, not black at all, tilting toward the dark red. Didn’t deliver the anticipated nitro mouthfeel either, instead with an unlikely watery base. Not much flavor to calculate, and a disappointing empty finish. Nothing "off" but not quite right either.

This was not a beer I wanted to finish. Seeing the ABV I now better understand. But there was a slight astringent and harsh flavor to the beer. Dark with a nice head but a an off aroma to. I did not enjoy this one of the lower qualities of country boy.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nitro draft to taster. Looks good; a translucent dark cola with creamy light beige nitro head. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, and a bit of roast. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel that’s on the creamy side. Enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nitro draft, on tap at Holy Grale. Pours black with a small creamy tan head that leaves quite a bit of sticky lacing. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Taste is huge coffee, roasted malts and chocolate up front with black licorice in the background. Long dry finish of roasty malts and chocolate. Full bodied, thick and creamy palate, slightly higher than average carbonation. Reminds me a lot of Schlafly’s Coffee Stout. Certainly much better than most other dry stouts I’ve had. And it’s sessionable too! Very good!
