This is a good-looking stout, decently thick without appearing to be overbearing, a moderate viscosity to it. It has a touch of a red sheen in a very dark brown body. The head, medium brown, forms a sturdy crown roughly a finger tall that sits stubbornly for the duration and leaves a mix of ringing, patching, netting and spotting.
A rich malts backbone provides plenty of roast with a bit of creamy sweetness, some coffee and cocoa particular to a big stout of the dark and dark roast varieties. A whiff of dark fruits eases into the end.
Lots of roast and char manages to avoid astringency. The only thing I'd ask for is a touch more sweetness (there's a little) and a less subtle lactose addition. As such, it's a great stout.
It's thick and rich with a moderate viscosity that gives great body and smoothness without sitting like a brick. There's just the slightest crispness, enough to keep it lively and interesting, and the smoothness pulls even into the roasty finish.
Serving type: on-tap
