3.1/5 rDev -13.2%
A: [2.50] Dark black, but not oily looking. The head was a 1/4 finger khaki brown - but it evaporated pretty quickly. Leaves no lacing on the glass. The bottle sports a Julian code - I don't have the decoder ring - but it is a stout so date is a little less important.
S: [3.50] Strong roasted malt character. Some chocolate and coffee scents sneaking in there too.
T: [3.50] Nice roasted character that lingers in the after taste. It is a very enjoyable flavor.
M: [1.50] It is all wrong. Too tingly feeling for a stout. It detracts from the smoothness and overall enjoyment of the beer.
O: [2.75] A middle of the road stout that is torpedoed by a stinging mouthfeel. The Appearance was not great either with the fast receding head and lack of lacing. With so many good and accessible stouts this one is off the list.

3.84/5 rDev +7.6%
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass. No best by date to be found.
A) Dark, dark brown with no hints of light penetrating. A quarter inch of light tan head caps it of and recedes to sporadic patches of dense tan rings clinging to the sides of the glass.
S) Am I drinking a caramel mocha because it sure smells like one. Touch of bitter hops and some malty sweetness floating around also. Some dark chocolate also.
T) Roasted malts accompanied by rich caramel that I picked up on heavily in the nose. CoaCoa and black coffee with a little hop bitterness round things out nicely.
M) Rich, creamy, and smooth. Carbonation is light, makes for a very sessionable, easy drinking stout.
O) First offering I've tried from Shipyard, a pretty damn tasty Irish Dry that hits the spot. Well done.
