A: Holy carbonation batman. My pint glass is literally all foam with no sign of beer at all. This is gonna take awhile to right itself. Eventually the sudsy mocha colored head fell to a manageable level, allowing me to get a look at the beer. Body is a thin looking dark brown cola looking brew fairly clear for a stout.
S: Sour chocolate milk, roasted barley, grapes and a touch of metal.
T: Starts off a lot like it smells. A slight sour twang hits the tip of the tongue with powdered cocoa and grapes working with it. Roasted barley moves in with some minor smoke aspects. Finishes with some aluminum and lingering buttery roastedness
M: Full bodied and soft with a lot of carbonation on the palate.
D: Take it or leave it. Nothing special but still drinkable.

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.
