CAN
Cola black body with pitted umber foam that hangs around but weird floaties on the last pour. 3.75
Straight chocolate malted milk ball nose. 4
Kola nut, chocolate extract, tar, and ash then cola bottle sweet-sour and some rosin, evergreen and orange rind. 3.75
Carob finish and earthy linger.
Almost medium, chewy, fizzy. 3.75

“India Stout” - East London hipster BS or somehow actually different from both a CDA and a hoppy porter? There are some sticky hops there (which get more piney as it warms) but there is no particular tropical fruit or citrus to make this put “India” in the name. Some cocoa, some dank, and a MOR strength to make this weirdly in between, a purposeless (with a Black IPA already in their core range) beer. ABV 3.75
