Pint on tap at Stout NYC, pours a jet black color with copious creamy head. Aroma is thin and vague with some sweetness noticed. and perhaps some doughyness as well. Taste is also thin and light with sweetness,kind of difficult to describe. Palate is light and is a pretty refreshing stout.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Poured clear medium brown with a two-fingered, sticky cap of beige head. The aroma picked up lactic notes over honey, molasses, and licorice maltage.. sweet overall and nicely roasty. The flavor found more of the same malts, with a surprising amount of honey.. lactic sourness and mineraly notes laced throughout.. moderate roast, but quite sweet. Medium-bodied at most with grainy bitterness all around.. the lactose and minerals complemented fairly well.. carbonation was on the higher end. This was an easy-drinkin’, tasty stout.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle with a pull-tab cap! Says 5.2% abv instead of the 4.8% listed here. Translucent chestnut with a ruby tint, and a small thin disc of cream above. Aroma is a nice blend of coffee, cocoa, caramel, and a bit of iodine and char. Tastes of graham cracker, coffee, spicy green herbs and hints of marshmallow. Long finish of charred driftwood and soft mellow grain. Medium-heavy body is well balanced, drinkably thinnish, and tingly with acidity.

Pours black with a good, foamy, beige/tan head. Aroma is herby/oceany and smooth burnt malt. Medium body; foamy carbonation. There’s a medicinal aspect (oysters?) and some nice smooth burnt malt. Good drink.
