Sampled at the Burlingame brewpub. Had a stout appearance but not nitro like guinness, much more of a thin head than i am used to. Flavors were sweet but not too smooth. Overall, not one of their better brews.

Had this as part of an 8 beer flight. Very flavorful stout. Just enough of a chocolate-y flavor to let you know it’s there. Great texture and hop-y finish.

Burlingame. Very fruity aroma, which is somewhat odd for a stout. Very pleasant with chocolate notes in the nose. Opaque appearance. Tastes like a nut brown Guineess. Creamy. Butter scotch.
