Cask at the Alehouse
Pours a fudgey brown with no head. Aroma is mellow - earthy chocolate and a hint of roasted grain. Smooth, creamy stout - the flavor is chocolate, subtle roast, bits of coffee, some burnt, ashy notes as well. Rich, earthy, but not too heavy. Nice

Roasty malt with chocolate and coffee. Pours straight black, lacking in head. Smokey light bitterness, followed by sweet coffee dryness. Thick gooey body that sticks around. Nice oatmeal stout.

Strong coffee and some dark chocolate flavors. Drinkable for a stout but didn’t pour much of a head. Also not as sweet as I’d expected. Overall a decent beer though.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a solid dark brown color with a faint garnet highlight when held to light. Decent sized tan head quickly dissipates to a cap. Smells of roasted and cereal grains, milk chocolate, caramel, a hint of earthy hops. The flavor is rich and dark chocolate up front with a hint of vanilla and caramel. Light earthy hop flavor with little to no hop bitterness. Medium body with a light level of carbonation and a creamy, silky smooth mouthfeel. This is a nice sweet stout, I enjoyed it.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark espresso brown with thick, frothy dark tan head. Aroma is a mix of raisin, toasted grains, bread and toasted cacao beans. Flavor is smokey, vanilla, wood, malts and dark grainy bread. Body is creamy yet active carbonation to balance the mouthfeel.

12 oz. bottle from Julio’s Liquors. Pitch black in an English pint, showing full, beige head that dissipated quite fast. Leaving little in its wake. Spotty lacing. Nose is oats and burnt chocolate malt. Flavors of roasted barley, burnt coffee, light chocolate and vanilla notes hiding in the finish. A touch of sweetness as well. Medium body with average Co2. Kind of chewy mouthfeel, big oat presence. This is a nice representation on how a stout would have tasted 250 years ago. Nice job Mayflower! Real tasty.

Bottle. Pours a dark opaque color with a foamy tan head. Nose is roasty, light chocolate and some sweetness. Palate is medium but chewy, velvety, light film. Flavors of cereal, chocolate, roast, a nice dryness.
