A-black body with little head at all.

S-maltiness with a slight bit of roastiness.

T-nice roasty body that goes down really smooth. Very good but one dimensional

M-medium body and smooth

O-very nice stout. Would like toto see what happens with barrel aging!

B+

TapRoom Pacific Beach

Served black black black, no highlights no head no lace.

Aroma is all about roastiness, thick char without smoke. Bitter coffee. Unmistakable rye.

Taste is preciously what the scent said. Strong flavor, roast again. Complexity lies in the sensation of an abrupt strong flavor fading away, doesn't evolve as much as simply fade nicely. Mouthfeel is rich slick and nicely lifeless.
cheers
