On tap at the Blue Dog in Lansdale- served in a Tulip glass.
Amazing looking stout- black as tar but the head was more dark brown/greyish than tan; a very dark but rich looking combination. Head was foamy- slowly reduced to sticky lace that caused lip-licking after every sip.
Aroma had hints of cocoa, bittersweet (dry) chocolate, slight malt. Taste was the same, but it had an amazingly rich/dry/full flair that stood out as different (but very excellent) from the Guinness-like Stout that I sampled prior to this brew. The contrast was amazing.
Full mouth feel- nice and bubbly- found myself noting a "wow" after every sip, as the taste and feel combination is very well paired.
Very drinkable and also would probably age very nicely.
Serving type: on-tap
