3.58/5 rDev -12.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5
Poured into a 10oz fluted glass...
Appeared - a lovely clear red when held up to the light for inspection, and seemed to sit a shallow, slightly hazy brown on the countertop. Rocky diminishing head with lively carbonation.
Smelled - a tinge of hoppiness, but mostly caramel and nutty maltiness.
Taste - possibly a bit of prune shone through on this, but otherwise, similar to what was described in aroma. The first wave was a distinct straw-like sweetness, and a slightly acidic following, with an average finish on this light to medium-bodied brew.
Drinkability - yeah, I cpuld have a good session with some more of these.
From trying the SS stouts, I am noticing a VERY similar taste in all of them. I find that odd. I will have to sample the Porter, as I only DRANK it out one night, at a concert at the Downstairs at the World Cafe Live in University City, Philadelphia. (yes, a nice beer selection there...) not fitting for a rating, after having multiple 60 Minute IPA's.
