3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2008 Draught @ the brewpub. This month new beer was Original Stout. Average creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Pitch black color. Aroma of mild smoke, butterscotch, roasted malt, liquorish. Over the palate came bacon notes, burned malt and mild underlying dusty floral feel. Medium bodied with a soft carbonation and light dry texture. Medium bitter flavor with light sweetness. Lingering roasted bitter malty finish. Quite nice and properly the best Dum I have tasted.

Pours almost black woth a big, staying, creamy, beige head. Nice duration. Great aroma, dry, roasted, light chocolate and subdued coffee. Light mouthfeel with low carbonation - fitting the style nicely. Flavour is powerfully roasted, pleasantly sweet chocolate to back it up. Very fresh and extremely drinkable.
