From Notes

Pours the traditional stout look, off white dense head.

Aromas subdued due to serving temp.

Taste is mild and sessionable. Hints of chocolate and roast malts. Only hints. In a quite watery body.

Mouthfeel to die for - smooth and creamy.

Great session beer. Truly great at the low ABV.

A - Pours a dark black color with a touch of brown around the edges and a finger of creamy khaki-chocolate colored head. The head fades down slowly leaving behind some nice lacing.

S - Aroma is a mix of chocolate and roasted barley with a touch of coffee and sweetness.

T - Starts off with a mix of roasted chocolate flavors with some light sweetness. Through the middle the roasted barley comes through a bit more with a touch of bitter coffee flavor. The finish is a mix of roasted barley and chocolate with a hint of sweetness.

M - Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Smooth and very creamy with dry and roasted finish.

D - Very drinkable. The nitro really gives this beer a fantastic mouthfeel and the flavors are nicely balanced to support that.

Nitro-can poured into a Sam Adams pint glass. It's always fun watching this beer "brew up" in the glass. It's a nice dark black with about a half inch of head once settled.

I can't believe I used to think of this as a "heavy" beer back in my college days. This is light as can be with an almost watery mouthfeel. Extremely easy to drink a few in one sitting. Has a decent mild coffee flavor with a roasty finish. Not a profound taste, but pleasant nontheless.

This is a great session beer. Also good as a "nightcap" after an evening of heavy craft beer drinking due to it's smooth feel and low ABV. Last night I had this right after a Stone 10th Anniversary Ruination, and I slept very well. Recommended as an entry-level stout.
