Had on tap at the Blue dog.
This stout came to me with a nice cascading head forming over the lushiously dark ale.
I would say at no point did the head fade below one finger and left sheets of lace on the glass.
I wasn't picking up much aroma but i was surprised at the amount of roasted malts there was.
The taste was roasted malts with some sutle hints of chocolate and coffee but mainly it was roasted that I noticed the most of.
Drink smooth and flat what with this being on nitro. Also it's quite dry and semi bitter with a gritty finish.
A little to roasted for me but good none the less.
