3.69/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pours a nearly opaque black body which lets only a hint of light through the ruby hues when held up to a light. The abundant, creamy tan head is slow to dissolve and leaves a dense, sticky lacing grabbing the glass.

The aroma features hints of semi sweet chocolate accompanying the lightly roasted malt which is really more toasted than anything.

The flavor again features lightly roasted malt and just a touch of baked chocolate. It is also a touch bread like, perhaps pumpernickel.

Very smooth, velvety and clean as one would expect for the style with a soft yet palate coating finish.

Overall a pretty nice dry, English Stout. Perhaps lacking the more charred malt aspect of some of its counterparts but very nice.

Serving type: nitro-can

04/05/13 On tap (nitro). Usual smoothness from most nitro pours. Extremely light body but not watery. Aroma is subtle & indicative of the shy flavor profile. Nice balance of sweet & bitter. No hint of the contemporary adds of vanilla/coffee/chocolate, etc. Listings show conflicting ABV but this tastes shy so I'll assume it's @ 4.5%. If that's the case I could see this as a pleasant session companion.

3.74/5  rDev +3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a 16oz nitro-can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark brown color, with a thin short very dense off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains roasted malts, chocolate, some honey and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with a little bit of smokiness that is quickly followed by a hearty but not too heavy roasted malt character. Then some flavors of chocolate, coffee, honey and dark fruit come in. The hops presence is very mild but complementary and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Smooth and a little crisp but a bit watery, medium body, light carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, very mild kick, good representation of style, this is a good beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.
