Had on tap in a little 9 oz snifter. I swear there was no smell whatsoever coming off this beer. Maybe it was served too cold.
Drinks more like a porter than a stout - supremely roasty with coffee and hop bitterness and a little roasty tang. Creamy center and mouthfeel that's really the star of the show. Like any good stout/porter, it grows in complexity as it warms, bringing out a little vanilla, caramel, anise and chocolate syrup. Despite the sweet flavors, this beer still finishes extremely dry.
Don't get me wrong, this is a very solid stout/porter, but not quite up to the level of luxury and complexity of something like an Expedition Stout.
Serving type: on-tap
