New slim 1/4 barrel keg tapped last weekend. Draft poured into my Stone RIS tulip.
A: Pours a murky dark shade of brown with a big beautiful frothy tan head (2 fingers worth) on top of it.
S: Roasted malts with a touch of vanilla, all done at a moderate volume. I pick up on some cocoa as well. To style.
T: Wow. Thick, rich, velvety, creamy. These are some of the words that first pop into my mind. Vanilla and cream first appear, followed closely by notes of luscious cocoa. A dry, semi-sweet finish, full of "roasted malt flavors", really rounds the experience out for me and make this an excellent, highly drinkable, thoroughly enjoyable Stout.
M: Elite. It's thick, full, luscious, and creamy. Simultaneous "full" and yet "light". Frothy and creamy, with a great moderately dry finish.
D/O: Highly drinkable. Thoroughly enjoyable. Strongly recommend. This keg purchase was not a mistake.
Serving type: on-tap

A - Pours pitch black with a two-finger tan foamy head. Heavy lacing.
S - Roasted malts, sweet milk chocolate, and dark coffee.
T - Follows the smell. Roasted malts with sweet milk chocolate. Bitter coffee in the middle. Finish is smokey.
M - Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Smooth drinking with a watery mouthfeel.
O - Very easy drinking roasted stout. A little more body would help out. Still very good.
