3.21/5  rDev -15.5%

Enjoyed this stout in downtown Austin outside on a patio deck in beautiful weather. Might bias me in favor of this beer. :)

Appearance - Extremely dark opaque; continuous, white/tan head; about two fingers of head initially.

Smell - Very hard to place; can't smell much; slightly citrus-like and hoppy.

Taste - Very hoppy for a stout; diesel-like hoppiness; strong aftertaste; bitter chocolate/malt taste; burnt; roasted; hoppy.

Mouthfeel - Bitter but still relatively comfortable on the palate; sharp aftertaste after hops.

Overall - A little too much hops for a stout (in my personal opinion) but still tasty; probably wouldn't seek this beer out again but I still appreciate what it is.

Serving type: on-tap
