DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2014
Taster on tap at the brewpub. Clear brown red color. Kind of not-black for a stout, though. Thin khaki head, leaves pretty good lace. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Lighter body for the ABV, but it has a good, full full. Not as chewy as a typical stout of this strength, though. Caramel, nutty malt, some chocolate, light roast and good bit of coffee in the finish. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Pretty decent stuff, but doesn’t seem quite like a stout, even though it has some stout flavors. More like a brown ale.
