Had this beer on tap at the Mews Tavern in Narraganset, RI and it was a pleasent surprise. Upon ordering I did not realize that this was a Shipyard brew, and although I had never had a Shipyard before I had seen the label many times before and was happy to finally be trying one of their beers.
This stout pours very dark black, which is a thumbs up in my book, nice thick quarter inch head which left much lace. The nose hints at the coffee notes that will follow. Taste is deep, rich and malty with the aforementioned coffee and more subtle chocolate notes dominating the pallete.
All in all a very solid dom. stout. Recommended vs. Beamish, Guiness and the rest. Enjoy!
Serving type: on-tap

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.
