This stout from the newly opened Turtle Anarchy brewery pours black as night (expected) with a rather thin and almost non-existant head.

Aroma has chocolate and roasted malts on it....almost burnt, really. Pretty dry.

Taste follows with a body of mostly bitter chocolate malts that pretty much dominate it with a roasted, almost burnt malt character. Again, very dry....and quite frankly, not really my style when it comes to stouts. The mouthfeel seems quite thin for the style as well. All in all, pretty average and run of the mill.

First impression is coffee. There's a lot of a dark chocolate flavor in the head, which I try to encourage to form as much as possible. There's a creamy and almost slick feeling in your mouth, and by now you're getting hints of roasted malt and some bitterness.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Arrives with a fudge brown color and a modest cap that leaves a few dots behind

Smell: Roasty, with chocolate and coffee notes

Taste: The roasted and chocolate elements appear, up front, with the coffee arriving in the middle; while the beer is not highly hopped, the coffee tones add some bitterness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a bit of a creamy character; moderate carbonation

Overall: Not sure I would characterize this as an American Stout as this is a bit more of a dry Irish stout to my palate; quite a nice debut for this new brewery

Pours black with a nice khaki head. Aroma is milk chocotae and roasty, some caramel, and a touch of hops in the finish to cut the sweetness with some mild earthiness. Flavor follows suit. A dry, medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, a really nice stout here. Turtle Anarchy is putting out some nice beers (aside from their one miss with me, Soulless).
