Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #139. Draft at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown color with a large creamy tan head. Fair head retention. Aroma of caramel, brown malt, butter, tart fruits. The taste is roasted malts and butter. Thin bodied, weak, off. Honestly, how do you fuck up the stout?

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Draft, Raleigh. Better than the porter to me, a nicely dry session stout that goes well with the cow and bison slung here. Handsome dark pour with a fluffy tan head. It still could use a slightly more emboldened body, but the mouthfeel is full and a nice combination of creamy and chalky. Good balance of smooth chocolate and dry roasted malts with an understated hop presence.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Tribeca Tavern in Cary. Pours a very black color with red highlights and a nice foamy tan head. This stout has clearly evident chocolate, coffee, and licorice aromas. The mouthfeel is very creamy. Taste is lots of chocolate, coffee, licorice and oats with a slightly dry finish. Not a bad brew for a $3 tap special. Tasty.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Serving: Draft at the Twisted Fork in Raleigh.
It pours pretty much pitch black with a creamy, tan head. Nice lacing left behind. The nose is very muted with slight roasted malt notes coming through. The taste is a bit weak and watery with over roasted malt, husk, and an odd dry finish. Not as much flavor as it should have. A light to medium body leading to a dry, roasty finish. It seems to be served on nitro which reallys seems to have blunted all aspects of this brew. Not good in a case where there probably wasn’t much to begin with. Skip this one.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft pint at the brewpub; dark, dark brown with a big quality head that disapated slowly. this is a bit sweet, and unfortunately a bit watery. There’s nothing to it and it was a major letdown after the two outstanding porters. (#2809, 4/21/2007)
