Uninspired and uninteresting. Reminded me of seltzer.

On tap at World of Beer Raleigh

A - black with a big thick brown head that has great retention

S - very faint nose; roasted malts, some chocolate

T - chocolate, roasted malts, creamy, faintly grainy, a bit sweet

M - medium bodied, well carbonated

This was a nice beer. It was rich and had good drinkability. My only complaint was the sweet graininess that came through. Otherwise, this was a nice stout that is worth a try.

Tap: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a medium size dark brown foamy head with good retention. Aroma of black chocolate with some residual sugar and light dry roasted malt notes. Taste is also dominated by black chocolate notes with some residual sugar (lactose?) and some dry roasted malt. Body has a creamy texture with good carbonation and a medium full body. Very enjoyable and well brewed overall.

Minimal head, minimal retention. Deep black body.

Aroma is rich and dark chocolatey, fairly sweet initially, with a touch of vanilla, and notes of dark fruit. Roast malt becomes more pronounced as it warms, along with tar and licorice.

Flavor is roast malt dominant, with big tar and licorice upfront, substantial nutty malt character hitting mid palate, accompanied by notes of char in the moderately bitter finish. Cereal tones linger in the aftertaste. As it warms, dark cherry, alcohol, and floral hops become evident. There's an acrid note that surfaces late.

Wish the bitterness were less prevalent, and that the acrid character weren't present. Think the black malt character is overdone. Alcohol is definitely noted.
