Served at Ashley's on draft.
Looks like a straight glass of dirty motor oil. No head, looks a viscous yellow-hued deep brown against the light.
Smell is a bitter coffee blast with a strong dark-roasted peanut aroma. Smells good, but not creamy or chocolatey as I expected.
Tastes like a sweet bitter coffee with a strong salty peanut aftertaste. Again, no chocolate flavor to speak of, unless you've had a peanut butter cup made with 88% Cacao, which I'm not sure exists. I expected more out of this one after having the Mayan Mocha Stout by comparison.
Mouthfeel is great for a stout. Not too bubbly and not too thick, I find the texture of this to be its strong suit. Even leaves a nice Guinnessy coating to the back of the throat. Easy to drink.
Overall I had higher hopes for this. Near the end of the pint the full flavor lulls its way in, which I love, but I get the idea that the full flavor of this gets out after a pint or two, which I don't have the time for at the moment. Don't get me wrong, I'd drink this all night, but I want the gusto in one pint! I'd order it again, but of the Odd Side stouts I've tasted, this wouldn't rank as one of the most dynamic.
Serving type: on-tap
