Yes, this beer is good. Very good. I live in Gainesville, so it's nice to have a quality stout made locally, two miles from my house.

This beer looks thick and black, with a white head that isn't all that thick. Leaves some lace on the class.

The smell is good, but just not very strong. Obvious malty and coffee scents. Somewhat nutty and fruity as well.

The taste complements the smell perfectly. The malted bready sweetness and the estery and chocolatey tastes are balanced well by the malt bitterness and coffee bitterness. Clean and crisp, especially for a stout. Very toasty.

Swamphead makes good, quality beer, and this is no exception.

Serving type: on-tap
