4/5 rDev +8.4%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Type: on-tap pint
From: Ashley's in Ann Arbor
Appearance: Dark brown almost black. No head by time I got it, but a nice white lacing around the outside. almost opaque.
Smell: Malty goodness. sweet, some dark fruits, a touch of alcohol.
Taste: pretty sweet, strong malts, dark fruits and a nice touch of alcohol. good but could use just a little something more
Mouthfeel: medium to slightly heavier. just a tad sticky.
Overall: a well brewed beer but needs just one more tweak to make great. I like my old ales a little bit more character. This one could use maybe some earthy hops, some age in an oak barrel, or maybe a combination of hops and toffee. My second beer from greenbush. both were good, neither wowed me.
Serving type: on-tap

On tap @ Hackney's. Pitch black pour into a snifter with a surprisingly light colored just off-white head. Plenty of stick and retention.
Smell is chocolate and dark fruits / clearly desk malts in play. No hop aroma, but that's OK.
Taste is more of the same, dark and roasty malts. Sweet dark fruit covered in slight bitter chocolate.
Mouthfeel is on the heavy side, but appropriate given the flavor and low carbonation.
This to me is a stout, and a damn good one. Not sure how it gots in the "old ale" universe, but who cares.

A total foam bomb! Not unlike my first home-brewing attempt. Not sure why something like this would be sold (at the brewpub). No quality control that day I guess. Had a couple others from Greenbush that were over-carbonated but this was a disaster. What I could taste was not too impressive.
