Poured into a pint glass. Deep black color, with a tan head. Had to pour hard to get a head at all, but it came out nicely in the end. Some decent lacing action going on too.
Aroma is all hops surprisingly.
Great, straight-forward flavor. Good strong, herbally, slightly acidic hop flavor... more than I'd expect in an average stout. Dark-roasted coffee and unsweetened chocolate as well. Pretty much zero sweetness. Zero alcohol heat too, but then again I am used to drinking higher-gravity brews.
Nice light carbonation, a little bit of a dry mouthfeel.
Goes down really easy and really delicious. As far as a straight-forward easy-drinkin' stout goes, this is pretty top-notch in my book!
