Pretty much an opaque black colour with a tan head the hangs around for awhile with a small amount of lacing.
A confusing aroma. Sweet, floral but a metallic smell to it.
Medium strong flavour on the bitter side. Notes of toast, coffee and herbal.
Medium body with a lively amount of carbonation. I found it a bit astringent and again, metallic feeling. Like the sensation from licking stainless steel if that makes sense?
A longer than average bitter finish but not intense.
As far as stouts go, this one is a little too light and bitter for my tastes. The subtle metallic smell and taste kind of threw me off. I'm new at paying attention to what I taste, so I could be mistaking that sensation for something else.
