2.35/5  rDev -15.5%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Had this beer without knowing AB brewed it. Everyone at my table tried it and we were all unimpressed.

It looked good enough in the glass. Typical dark appearance with good head retention. It was all down hill after that...

Aroma was very light for a stout. Almost imperceptable. Took many whiffs to get some hints of roasted malt and coffee.

Taste was lacking depth and character. Shocking for a stout. Like a "stout light." Very, very curious. Just not much there.

Mouthfeel was too light.

Overall, a very weak beer of this style. Not worth trying. There are so many good stouts out there that this one is a waste of time.

Serving type: nitro-tap

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

This poured out looking a little like a lighter version of Guinness. The color was a deep brown but not black like a stout should be. The head was creamy and tan in color with a light sticky lacing on the glass after each sip. The smell of the beer wasn't anything too impressive. It was a little musty or earthy with a light roast aroma to it also. The taste of the beer was light, it had a minimal amount of flavor to it with a touch of roasted bitterness in the finish. The mouthfeel of this beer was light, a little watery to me, by no means was in creamy like it should be be. Overall this beer isn't anything special. I wouldnt have to have it again.
