3.48/5  rDev -1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Black in the standard shaker pint with a thick creamy head and all the expected lacing. Faint grainy aroma.

Delightful watery body that is also full of flavor. Rather mild all around. Just a pleasant burr of blackened malt, a faint hint of sour charcoal, even a splash of sweet malt. Some bitterness towards the end. A pleasant quaff but nothing to start a fight over.

On tap at Pizza Port in OB (9/04/2012 notes). ABV was listed at 4.3%.

Serving type: nitro-tap

Nitro pour at Pizza Port San Clemente.

A: Dark brown with an unassuming deep red tinge (Argento worthy). There's a finger of tan cream that fades in half a minute, though a few defiant bubbles linger.

S: Lightly roasted grains blend with coffee and cream with nutty notes. I detect unsweetened chocolate.

T: Chocolate and cream with dark grains and a little coffee. Lightly nutty with low bitterness. Nice flavor. Sweet cocoa coffee finish.

M: Medium body with a thin, watery, slightly creamy mouthfeel.

Overall: A well-executed Dry Stout. Very enjoyable, though a bit of a thin mouthfeel.

Had on tab at Blind Lady Ale House. First beer of my San Diego trip.

Beer poured a dark black color with a good amount (2 fingers or so) of creamy white head.

Beer smells faintly of a sweet, roastyness, but nothing too prounounced.

Beer had a fairly weak taste. A bit of roasty, but not very much. The beer had a bit of a bittersweet aftertaste like dark chocolate, but again faint.

Mouthfeel was creamy, but a bit on the thin side.

Overall, an OK dry Irish stout, but nothing really stoodout.

Serving type: on-tap

On Tap (Nitro)

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Black in color with a thin and creamy head after the cascading nitro pour. Decent lacing--I couldn't expect anything more from this beer.

Faint aroma. Some slight roasted malt and grain presence with a bit of chocolate bitterness and sweetness.

Not a lot of flavor going on either. Some slight coffee flavors, quite a bit of roasted malt, and a bit of sweetness.

Thin mouthfeel, nitro carbonation.

A simple, undefined, quite roasty dry stout.

Serving type: nitro-tap

On nitro at Pizza Port San Clemente

A: The pour is nearly black in color with a finger of creamy, dense, tan head.

S: Smells of coffee and roasted malts with some bitter dark chocolate character, too. A touch of earthy hop character. Just a hint of sweetness, sort of like molasses.

T: The flavor is definitely watery, more so than I often find with other nitro beers. The same coffee, roasted malt, and dark chocolate flavors are there, but the intensity is not.

M: Thin bodied with the typical nitro carbonation.

O: Far too watery tasting and too thin on the tongue. Could have been better with a bit more body.

Serving type: nitro-tap
