3.34/5 rDev -6.2%
On draft at Churchkey in D.C.
The beer is near black with a thin, wispy collar. The aroma is bigger than anticipated, given the low gravity of the beer. Typical Mikkeller Danish roast scents, rich chocolates, malt, some bitter coffee notes. The flavor is decent, but I feel that the beer is too thin. I know this is intended to be a sessionable version of the Beer Geek series, but this is lacking in depth and body. Fun to try, but one and done for me.

2.74/5 rDev -23%
On tap at Max's (from notes)
A: Dark, dark brown.
S: Light but espresso, black coffee and dark chocolate with a burnt and roasty scent.
T: Watery coffee. Light. A bit roasty but that is it.
M: Watery and smooth.
O: Sessionable stouts like this seem to be a rare thing, and probably for good reason, it is hard to do this style justice. It is similar to extreme session IPAs, in that it is hard to truly pull off well.

From 10/17/13 notes. Had this on tap at Blind Tiger in NYC. $7 for a 12 oz. tulip.
a - Pours a deep mahogany brown color with one inch of a light tan head and low to moderate carbonation evident. Looks pretty good.
s - Smells of roasted malts, cream, vanilla, milk chocolate, toasted malts, and dark chocolate. Nice nose, more flavor to it than I was expecting. Not overly strong in any aspect, but a lot going on for such a low ABV beer, and really nice.
t - Tastes of roasted malts, nuts, toasted malts, chalk, musty, and dark chocolate. Taste has less chocolate than the nose and no real vanilla. Good but a definite step down from the nose.
m - Thin, light body and moderate to low carbonation. Body is too thin and watery for a stout; takes away from it.
o - Overall this is an interesting and decent smaller stout...it is like a very watered down BGB, which is ok with me. Nose is good, though the body is too thin and the taste is a bit weak. Worth trying, I'd prefer the stronger, better BGB personally.
