This beer was served on tap at the Blind Tiger in New York, NY. It arrived in a Stevens Point pint glass. The brew glowed a dark black color, and sported a half finger tall head of coffee colored bubbles. Retention was nice, with thick bubbly lacing left around the glass. Carbonation appeared active, and no sediment was noted. The aroma was thick with big nuttiness, more specifically, of peanut. There was also a coffee sweetness, and a lighter toffee flavoring. The malts were cool, metallic, and creamy. As we sipped, the flavoring began with lactic sourness and thick grain, of darkened, cooked coffee beans. There was a brief citric hops slickness, but this fizzled out as the height of the roastiness peaked through the middle. There were hints of lighter booze, with bittering hop activity and grassiness returning once the malts began to settle. The finish was of more of that coffee dryness, with roast, and souring grain at the outset. The aftertaste breathed of lactics, sourness, hop oils, and tinny metallics. The body was lighter to medium and the carbonation was average. The coffee and malts lent a drying astringency to the mouth, with only decent smack and slurp. The abv was standard, and this is a sipper.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was the dry finish, and the robust malt activity throughout. The other flavors, however, were a bit subdued, and we would have liked to see a thicker feel to back up the stronger flavoring. This is a nice beer, but it isn’t ideal, as the flavoring is not rounded out as nicely, and as strongly, as one might hope.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

A - Amber-dark appearance with a thick cream head. A bit on the light side for a stout.

S - Healthy, coffee scents with a bit of metallic edge.

T - Relatively empty taste for a full stout. Relatively bitter compared to what is to be expected of a quality stout.

M - Good, hearty taste but a bit on the bitter side (~45-50 IBUs) for a stout.

O - A notable stout. Definitely recommendable. Not, however, what could be had with similar brews.
