Pennsylvania

4.03/5  rDev +8.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a pint glass. Pours I believe black but up to the light you can see reddish highlight's. Coffee colored heading,really no lacing at all.

Smell is ridiculously malty,coffee and a touch of chocolate.

Taste is all dry malt upfront and kind of roasted/burnt aftertaste. I really couldn't taste any hops.

Mouthfeel is very creamy and smooth

Drinkability is decent nothing spectacular too much of a burnt malt aftertaste to enjoy more than a few.

This is the first time I've had the extra stout and from what I hear is the closest thing to the real deal. I will advocate the draught next.

Happy Saint Patrick's Day
