On nitro at Alcatraz (Orange)

A: Pours a very dark brown color with a thick creamy head to go with it.

S: As expected, the aroma is primarily roasted malt with a touch of coffee. Not too much else going on here. Maybe some earthy and spicy hops, perhaps a hint of nutmeg?

T: Definitely watery, but decent enough coffee flavors. Quite a lot of roast, but it's very astringent and acrid and gives the beer a slightly sour taste.

M: Watery and thin with a creamy carbonation.

O: Really not even middle of the road here. Pass.

Sampled 3/19/2011 at the brewpub.

Pours the usual hazy/opaque black with off-white creamy nitro head. Good lacing.

Aroma is roasted malt, some coffee, and bit of ash/smoke.

Flavor is awfully astringent resunlting in some tartness, a good amount of roasted and ashy flavors, medium bitterness, and a touch of cream.

Body is very light and watery, too light even for a 4.5% Irish stout.
