look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A: no light around the edges of this black stout - two fingers of dark foam that slipped away to a slim collar - no trace of lace

S: some roasted dark malt aromas, but nothing else caught my nose

T: there is a slight potato-ey taste here, nestled amid the roasted malts, and a very subtle cold black coffee-ish-ness; the malts are most forward: very dark, dry, and roasty

M: too thin for my tastes, smooth, sure, and mellow, sure, and I hate to say "watery," but I will; slightly bitter, but in a roasty way

O: This was a random buy and something outside my typical drinking interests, but I figured I'd give it a try. Perhaps better with food, and perhaps more enjoyable to a fan of the Irish dry stout or potato water, but not something I'd return to.

A - Black pour. Looks a bit thin and watery. Soapy foam head settles fast. Minimal lacing.

S - Dry malt aroma. Some biscuit notes in the smell. Earthiness lends to some mild spice notes.

T - Flavors of nuts, fresh bread, and light malts. I don't know what the potato addition really adds to the beer. Finish is slightly sweet.

M - Very sessionable and easy to have a few pints. Leaves a dryness on the tongue that goes well with robust food. I had this with fish and chips, and found the malt vinegar and other stronger food flavors were complimented by this beer.

O - This is a solid attempt by a local at this style. Not quite on par with some of the other Blind Bat beers but people who enjoy a dry stout would not be disappointed.

Very smooth, clean tasting beer... crisp finish... smells good and malty with coffee being up front for me. Excellent carbonation lead to a good smell. Tasted great for me because it was light and not what your expecting from a dark beer. Lead to a crisp, clean finish.. I would agree that it had a watery taste and would best be suited drinking during a meal. But and excellent beer that I would recommend to try because the balance of everything is pretty spot on....

Tried in a bottle after a bad growler experience.

A – Virtually black with no head or highlights.

S – Light coffee. Touch of cola. Interesting potato-starch aroma.

T – Malty roast up front. Some of that strange potato-like starch comes through from the nose, and dives right into an incredibly dry finish.

M – Watery on it’s own, but still manages to hold up well with food.

O – The arid dryness makes this an incredibly versatile beer for pairings, but the light body kills the stand alone drinkability.

P – Pair with pork burgers with sage, or try alongside grilled flatbread pizzas topped with roasted red peppers and char grilled onions.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Very dark brown-black color with very little head. There is a bit of a tan-brown ring around the outside and little lacing.

S - Very strong deep roasted malt aroma, with some deeper chocolate/carmel sweetness mixed in to balance a bit. Just a hint of biscuit also noticeable.

T - Starts off with a sweet roasted malt flavor with a touch of starchiness mixed in. Through the middle there is a nice hit of deep roasted malt flavor. The finish is a sweet chocolate/carmel malt flavor that lingers for a while with a touch of coffee bitterness.

M - Medium bodied with very little carbonation. Feel a bit watery. Finishes super dry and leaves behind a nice crisp feeling.

D - Pretty drinkable. The dryness is really nice and really allows the flavors to pop out a bit. Only downside is, the beer feels a bit watery and could use a bit body/creamy feeling. The aftertaste is really nice and satisfying.

A- The best part of this beer. It looks like a stout

S- Smells like a sour spoiled potato stout

T- Tastes even worse, it tastes like a potato that has turned colors (yes I have accidentally bit into one). Sour spoiled potato

M- Oh My God, very harsh acidic, thin stout

O- AAAHHH, this beer is sooo bad that I think that I will have to drain pour. It is a very sour potato stout. I am sorry, but I don't think that I want this. Why was this bottled?
