Grumpy Troll Owd Finley Stout
From notes. Enjoyed at the Great Taste of the Midwest on August 08. The pour is a dark brown, at best, and is a lot thinner than I would expect for a stout. There is also a ring of white head that accompanies it. The aromas are a bit plain. You have to search for the, There is a lot of roasted malt and smokiness. There is a little molasses and maybe a hint of cocoa. The flavors are much of the same. A lot of smoky malts and just a pinch of cocoa. There might be a little coffee on the back end, but it could be my imagination trying to make this better than it is. The mouth feel is thin and slick with a crisp carbonation. None of these things should be present with a stout. The aftertaste is lingeringly smoky and roasty. So many better beers.
