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

The first bottling of Mean Old Tom aka Batch 1

A: Pours a deep reddish-brown with a 2 finger brown head

S: Definite dry stout smell, with malty chocolate notes and some burnt coffee. Vanilla is wayyy in the back of the nose, and kind of tricky to detect

T: Dry with a huge malt profile followed by chocolate and vanilla notes. Quite bitter on the finish

M: Medium body and carbonation, pretty smooth. Fairly watery, but I find that to be the case with a lot of lower abv stouts

D: Another solid offering from MBC, this definitely has some potential. Easily drinkable and not too heavy

Serving type: bottle
