3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Described on Only Cafe menu as ’Irish Stout’ and brewed by Jamie Daust. Fairly opaque brown-black and little head. Subtle aroma. Taste some round toasty dark malts (and roast barley?) with plenty of bracing crispness and good hop bittering - dry and a touch sour, fruity nutty and cocoa, hint of coffee, Pretty complex and varied flavors under dry-bitter palate and smoky-dry finish. "First Draft" was not listed as part of the name, whether or not it should be.
