500ml bottle into a pint glass. (Dig the bottle)

Pours not quite jet black/inky, light gets through and shows a nice ruby red on the edges. About a finger of fluffy off white head that dissipates and leaves a thin film.

Get a lot of dark roasty notes on the smell, no real coffee/chocolate notes to speak of. Slight breadiness and maybe a twang of sourness.

Mouth feel is light to medium, good amount of carbonation for a stout, refreshing.

The taste is very reminiscent of Guinness to me, only better. Very roasty, slightly sweet no real hops to speak of. Any bitterness if any is coming from the dark roast. Faint hints of a dark chocolate but not much.

Overall- Not my favorite stout by far, but it's pretty good I wouldn't turn it down. I think there are better stouts for the money but definitely worth trying. Sidenote- I found myself not impressed what so ever when I first poured, got exponentially better as it warmed.

Ode to a Cream Stout: One downfall I noticed immediately was this beer isn't much of a stout, but good none the less! Strong malt and chocolate taste with a dry bitter finish, a great "dessert" beer to finish a meal.

Served cold from 500ml bottle into straight pint glass.

A) Black and opaque. Had a fairly lively tan head at first that disappeared quickly, leaving a thin film with a little lacing.

S) I drink stout cold, so not getting a lot. Smells fairly alcoholic, smells fairly light for a 6.5% stout (hey, that is strong in England!)

M) Light carbonation, in line with the norms of the style. Being cold it is fairly refreshing. Goes down very easy for 6.5%.

T) Very light for the strength. Slight coffee hints. No bitterness to speak off. Very light aftertaste. Just not a lot to write about.

O) In two minds on how to write this up. This is like a very good version of Guinness, with no real flaws. Goes down super easy. My criticism would be: does it have to be 6.5% to achieve that? Buy it if you are a general stout fan, you will enjoy it without being blown away. If you are an stout fan from England looking for our equivalent of Founders et al., this is nowhere near.
