Draft at Bells.

Pours dark chocolate brown with minimal head. Aroma of chocolate. Taste is hints of chocolate, roast malt. All flavors somewhat muted. Could be indicate of a dry stout - a style on which I am not well versed. I'd think it's close to an Irish stout (some definite Guiness comparisons here).

A- Near black with a nice light tan head that stuck around for 10min or so, and still left nice lacing all over the glass. No noticeable bubbles.

S- Barley, dirty earth, over ripe fruit funk. Some light chocolate, vanillas

T- Kinda meh as it was cooler with nothing distinguishing it. Got better as it warmed with roasted barley, hints of chocolate, still had the earthy flavor hanging around. Noticable dry finish with no real bitterness.

M- Medium body but slightly watery feeling, still no noticeable carbonation. No noticeable stickiness.

O- Started off as disappointed as it was cool, but it did get better as it warmed up, still nothing to write home about, but drinkable. Fairly average across the board, guess I was expecting more from one of my favorite Brewerys.
