3.99/5  rDev +5.8%
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

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.
