3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
A midgrade coffee stout. The head on this was exceptional. All around fairly good.
Tap at Rams Head Tavern in Annapolis, MD. Pours deep ruby cola to near black with a thinner tan coffee head with little to no retention or lace. Savory and sugary nose with muted vanilla extract and sweetened coffee. Taste is drier, bitter, with a hefty dose of true coffee. Palate is sharper with oily components. Mild salty quenching in finish. Neutral overall and enjoyable. No noticeable flaws. No green or gritty coffee character.
