Another super pickup by Bob in Charleston. Clear brown, orange highlights, thin spotty head, some lacing. Heavy dark chocolate nose is nice. Chocolate taste with medium/neutral mouthfeel. Not real creamy or velvety but not real dry. Somewhat dry finish though, and a bit gritty. Very nice.

Can, Thanks Taylor - Pours black with a cream head. Smells of roasted malts and dark chocolate. Tastes dark chocolate, some hops, and very roasty. Medium body and very smooth. Pretty solid!!!

Nitro tap does wonders for this brew, as the base tends to be a bit light in body. Touch of lacto nose amidst the creamy, roasty body. I like this much better than from the can.

Tap (nitro) at the Ginger Man, Houston TX, 21/05/13.
Light black with a medium tan head that retains.
Nose is roast malt, dark toffee, chocolate.
Taste comprises bitter roast malt, molases, chocolate, maltesers.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry roasty finish. The alcohol is well disguised. Decent enough stout.

Can: Burnt caramel in color, not too dark for a stout. Thin to moderate sudsy light beige head, spotty lacing. Strong sweet roasty nose. Very smooth on the tongue, very roasty, coffee beans, and also a nice
sweetness. This is not a hop oriented Stout at all. I almost would say Coffee Stout because it seems to have so much coffee flavor. Moderate to full body and mouthfeel. Seems somewhat rich. Strong lactose
and coffee like sweetness on the finish. Very nice, and unexpected!

Oh man, what a craft! This stout is hands down in the top three stouts out there. Not for the rookie beer drinker, nor for those that prefer the lighter side of beer. However, even the ale drinker or the novice can appreciate this one. Rather pricey ($11.99 a 4 pack most places), but well worth it!

Can. Pours like bubbly cola. Moderate lacing. Aroma of plain roast. Taste is sticky sweet vanilla. Feels like drinking a flat vanilla Coke.
