SN Stout

Poured into a the glass. Pitch black inside the glass. The color actually is dark brown. Totally opaque. Small half finger thick head, of light brown color. Solid retention. Decent lacing.

Smell: Huge roasted malts presence. Some hop presence is felt as well. Inviting presence of coffee as well. Looks very robust and well balanced.

Taste : Smooth. Very unlike other sweeter stouts. This is very well balanced. Roasted malts upfront and a backbone of hops to balance everything. After taste is much complex with presence of roast, coffee and hops.

Mouth feel: No hotness, may be due to lack of alcohol. Medium bodied feel, slightly creamy. No astringency of roasted malts or heavy carbonation. Moderately carbonated.

Over all: A good stout. Above par, but nothing out of ordinary.

Style rate: 4.25 Personal rate: 3.5
