Tap. Long lasting dark tan head, jet black body. Nose is light roasted coffee, dry maltiness, slight toast, and a bit of cocoa powder. Flavor has a nice chocolate tone with roasted and toasty maltiness, and finishes dry. Nitro delivery provides the soft, creamy light body. Easy drinking

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Russian River, pours a near-black with an amber tinge and a creamy tan head. Aroma is very dry, bringing out oats and some lightly toasted malt. Flavour is surprisingly robust and flavourful for a nitro dry stout, with smooth oats and unsweetened cocoa. Very smooth and creamy on the palate, without any lingering bitterness or metallic quality that is common with the style. Great one.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black. Not a powerful aroma, bread and caramel. Good flavor, roasty, smokey flavors and a little caramel sweetness. Not an overpowering stout, but enjoyable.

Alla spina al brewpub. Forse la birra che ho meno apprezzato di Russian River, forse perchè il livello delle altre è eccelso ma questa mi è sembrata mancare di carattere. Una stout tutto sommato normale.
