This was tasted at the Capital Ale House in Fredericksburg. The nose was of roasted malt and cinnamon. The small head disappeared and left on a small tan collar. Complex stout with all the raisins and currents in the brew. It was a bit thin and watery. The light body stout’s carbonation was average. The finish was sweet with no bitterness.
