Charleston Brewing Big Ugly Dry Stout (2016)
Draft at the brewery This was the only beer that was weak. The stout poured a black color with no head and lacing. n The stout was almost flat. It was more like ice coffee. It had a light body and no carbonation. The keg and carbonation system may have been at falt. The food was great. This is a worthwhile stop in Charleston.
