3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at PP Solana Beach. At 8.5% it’s pretty much an imperial stout, so that’s what I entered it as, even though the bartender told me it was an American stout. Pour black with a tight CO2 bubble head over a thickish black liquid. Not sweet or dry. Some chocolatey roastiness at a low level. Pretty easy to drink. Good pizza beer. Excellent stout for this ABV.
