330. Thanks, A! Pours jet black with a loose and sudsy grayish head. Very sweet nose, a little milky, lots of milk chocolate. Thick and sticky mid palate with moderate carb. Very sweet mid palate, especially for a dry stout, lots of unfermented sugars, chocolatey, a little bit of sweet fruitiness like snack cherries. Long sticky sweet finish.

Very dry, nice sourness in the body. Fresh, smooth, malty smooth, easy to drink but still thick. Great malty-dry sourish aftertaste with a bit of bitterness. Great.
