Thanks Evan (optimator13) for this LA local!
A - Charcoal black with a tan one finger head.
S - Bittersweet chocolate, roasted malts, a little coffee.
T - More bittersweet chocolate. Taste def follows the nose. Burnt malts, very tasty.
M - This one goes down smooth. Medium bodied with a great amount of carbonation.
O - Based on the notes there isn't a whole lot going on in regards to extreme flavors or taste - but I like that. I like it a lot (in Forest Gump voice). I think a lot of these new 'rare' and hyped stouts have so much going on that it's almost overwhelming and an overkill at times. Nice to enjoy this simple bomber that exemplifies what a good stout that sticks to the basics is all about.

New Orleans Lager & Ale Brewing Company (NOLA) - Irish Channel Stout, poured into a Craftgeer snifter.
Look - Pours a thin viscosity motor oil brown black with a small head that doesn't retain much at all. Tiny amounts of lacing.
Smell - Backer's chocolate is the most prominent, some "green bean" roasted malts (I dunno, that's what I smell every time in this malt variety) and a dash of espresso and hops.
Taste - Creamy and zippy carbonated chocolate with a nice roast followed by espresso notes and finishing a dash of hops.
Mouthfeel - Light-heavy body with high carbonation. Real nice feel here it's got great balance. Mouthfeel and drinkability is phenomenal, a real quaffable beer.
Overall - What a surprise, such a flavorful non-imperial stout! Typically I've been more into imperials but this one rekindled the glame for the good old American Stout!
