The SN Stout pours an almost opaque black with deep ruby highlights. It has a frothy clingy tan head that goes to a collar and displays a ton of lacing.
Its aroma is appealing as well - figs, chocolate, roasted malts with some bitter coffee notes.
The flavor is fruity figs, chocolate and vanilla up front, followed by a strong metallic, almost chalky, bitterness that kind of rubs me the wrong way. It is thinner than I would expect yet leaves a sticky bitter residue.
Overall, this is a nice stout. If not for the off finish (to me at least), this would be a great one.
