Tap in Maple Shade. Ruby edges on pitch pour with clingy tan head. Nose is beautifully roasty, heavy coffee there but it’s a city roast, gentle background fruit with tar and ash. Taste is abundantly fruity, quite sweet, silky light-medium body, light oatmeal in with the roastiness. Excellent Sweet Stout.
