Had this beer poured from draft at Taphouse Grill in Seattle. Creamy and guiness taste. It is good but nothing unusual about it

Bomber. Nose beautiful cracked and crushed coffee beans with ash and mellow roast, wood. Deep brown pour with a sodypopinski light brown head. Smooth, watery light body is very sweet with some ash and mellow roast, wood more toward the end, but the coffee and potential nuts aren’t here as much. Very deep background fruit. I like this, it’s really easy-drinking and approachable, but I prefer my stouts bone-dry and a little more complex. Also with perceptible hops.

Stout slightly opaque brown color, suttle tastes of oatmeal but I think the draft here was lacking some carbonation so didn’t do this thing justice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour. Clear dark-ish brown, off white head that fades to a ring and leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is light sweet crystal malts, some roast in there as well. Taste is some astringent roasted malts, some cola like flavors, perhaps a touch of bitterness on the finish, though hard to tell if that is from the roasted malts or hops. Just OK.
