Served in a shaker pint glass at the tap room.
Finishing up my first visit to the brewery with some despondence over the Bears' lackluster play and a nice, sessionable stout. It pours a bleak black-brown topped by a stoic finger of dark-ish khaki foam. The nose comprises roasted malts, mild cocoa, and light toast. Things are muted thanks to the nitro-tap. The taste brings in more of the same, with a stronger sense of the roast and a bit of that Guinness-style sourness in the finish. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a nice nitrogenation and a subsequently smooth feel. Overall, I liked this tasty stout best out of the initial run here. It may not set the world on fire, but it's one I'm likely to have during future visits.
Serving type: nitro-tap

A: Black with amber tones on edge of glass when held up to light. Small tight head that dissipates quickly.
S: Sweet and Roasty, with coffee and carmel notes. Subtle fruitiness also present.
T: Subtle flavor compared to nose. Slightly watery. Roasted bitterness balanced with carmely malt that ends in more roast. finishes with sweet roast and mild dryness.
M: A bit thin, with moderate carbonation. Mild dryness complement light flavor.
O: Not a bad stout. More of a session stout, with a great nose and mild on the palette. A bit more body would help, but an overall good beer — good enough to take a growler home from the taproom, anyway.
Serving type: growler
