Jet black in color with no light penetration. There's a fingernail of beige resting on top. Heavy lacing. There's a plethora of dark malt in the nose. I taste plenty of dark malt, plum, and fig. The mouth is silky, creamy, and smooth.

Turtle Anarchy Brewing Co. "Portly Stout"
on tap @ ACME Feed & Seed, Nashville, TN
$6 per pint

Notes: Typical stout appearance with a very short cap of foam. Hard to tell if the head retention and lacing are limited by the glass it's served in, but they're certainly limited. Aroma of dark chocolate and cold black coffee. The flavor flip flops what the aroma suggests with coffee upfront and chocolate behind. A little harsh, and somewhat astringent. For a "portly" stout I actually find it kind of thin. Lots of dark malt acidity, and really quite dry - there's nothing wrong with that really, but the name seems to suggest something else.
