A decent stout, not as sweet as I expected, but I would rather get the bitterness. A bit light on the mouthfeel for a stout. Half decent roasting and some chocolate malt.Significant lace.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On nitro at the brewpub in Portland, ME. Pours a black body with a cascading, brown, finger-width, creamy head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is smooth oats and chocolate with a moderate roast backing. A bit of a soft vanilla. Flavor is similar. Creamy oats and rich chocolates with a moderate roast backing that increases towards the end a bit with a light piney hop coming in. Finishes smooth and dry with a light-medium bitterness from the hops and roasts before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Creamy, medium body and a soft, light carbonation. Overall, a pretty straightforward, but solid sweet stout. Rich chocolates and a nice roast backing as well as a light piney hopping. Easy drinking and enjoyable.
