A creamy light tan head caps the dark brown body. Good lacing. It has a quiet aroma of roasted barley and milk chocolate. Same with the flavor, although there’s a touch of sour milk near the finish. It also leavea a chalky coating in the mouth. But not too bad for a style that rarely thrills me.

On tap at R.B. - Yorktown (nitro pour). Poured deep brown with a creamy beige head and nice lacing. Aroma was difficult to access... but deep down were roasty semi-sweet chocolate and some airy detergent notes. Flavor was more approachable.. nice chocolate presence with light earthy and coffee bitterness.. not complex, but quite tasty. Creamy on the palate with grainy bitter chocolate and earthy notes at the edges.. lighter-bodied. Just OK.

Mug club draft on nitro. Half-inch tan stout head, a nice Guinness-y cascade that fades from café au lait to jet black. Smell has some roastiness and a bit of grain. But the glass is just too damn cold for this style! The foam had a nice creamy texture, and in the cold, the effervescence was a little fuller than the unusal thin pinpricks of a notro stout. I had the hold a swig in mouth to warm up so I could taste its bitter coffee notes and astringency. This beer is, yes, dry, with a touch of orange for an Irish stout’s usual bit of sour. A pleasant session beer than needs to be wamred up a little.
