(Draught) Sampled at the Sea Dog Brewery. Lasting beige head with opaque body. Mild malt and cocoa nose. Tart cocoa flavour. Finishes dry and bitter. Good!

Smooth mouthfeel, bitter aftertaste. Very ’Guinness-like,’ except I thought it was more bitter. (It was a while back that I sampled this; just came across my notes for it.)

Not quite as roasty as I would have liked, but not too hoppy like some other micro stouts I know of. A good beer, even served it with nitrogen off the tap.

What a damn fine beer. I had the draft at The Sea Dog in Bangor and I was most impressed. This was definitely an awesome beer. Like the description, a very strong, dark stout with a very creamy taste and creamy head. Has a nice bitter ending.
