Growler fill at Green's Piney Grove, poured into a Conquest tulip pint glass.

A: Pours quite black, with generous khaki head. I only get some light ruby tinting on the edges when I hold the glass to the light; the head subsides to a light cap that sticks around.

S: I get the standard sweet stout notes; some roasted barley, both bitter and milk chocolate, light scent of coffee.

T: A little roastiness up front, followed by both bitter and sweeter chocolate, with a lingering sweet finish.

M: Medium-bodied, with light carbonation and a slight stickiness.

O: A nice sweet stout (no lactose) that is highly sessionable. It stays with the standard notes for the style, but hits every one well.

Once I allowed the growler to warm up a little bit, I poured my first glass of the Medusa Stout from Conquest. The pour yielded a nice two finger head that was pretty steady through the first half of the drink. The stout had an excellent color and was very opaque. The real magic came when I tasted it:

The mouthfeel was superb. Very thick and yet drinkable. The taste was fairly complex with an initial taste of dark chocolate and cream followed by dark roast coffee. The aftertaste was clean and ever so slightly bitter. Overall, I can say this was my favorite stout I have ever had.

Had this on tap at Liberty on the Lake in Irmo, SC. Deep, deep chocolate hue to where no light shone thru. There was just a thin head of cappucino colored foam (no doubt due to the pour).The smell was absolute heaven; just an almost perfect blend of coffee, cocoa, and raisins. The tatse delivered exactly what the aroma promised. Mouthfeel was a little chewy, which suits me just fine!

Overall, this has moved to the top of my list! (Of course, there are still multitudes to try!) But it doesn't hurt that this brewery is in my back yard!

I had the stout a Mack on main. I asked the waitress who made it she told me it was made here in Columbia. I have been a home brewer for over 25 years and had just finished a milk stout. I must say this stout was better than my. It had a nice creamy head. You could pick up the dark malt smell. It tasted awesome. Since then I have been a reg at Coonquest
