4.03/5 rDev +13.2%
Draft pint at Map Room. Black body with brownish edges and a finger of light tan foam on the surface. Good coverage and lasting retention with a little bit of a frothy collar around the edges.
Light dry roast in the aroma, mellow and smooth like a porter.
Flavor is moderately roasty with notes of bakers chocolate, nutty toasted malt, and a lingering aftertaste of dark roast malt as well. Nicely rounded and not at all astringent. Smooth and light bodied, very sessionable. The pint disappeared pretty fast. Abandon style hangups, it's not going to adhere to any standard RIS framework, this is more of a small beer version of one. It's the antithesis of Bourbon County, which is the joke that seems to be missed by quite a few.

On-tap at Little Goat.
A. Very dark cola color with a small light-tan head.
S. Prevalent roast, dry grain, chocolate, coffee bean. Everything is here but a little muted.
T. Moderate yet smooth roast up front, a bit of cocoa sweetness, light ashiness, bland finish.
M. Between light and medium-bodied with active, almost-frothy carbonation. Very drinkable due to the undetectable alcohol level.
O. Pretty nice for what it is intended to be, which is essentially a joke. Outside of its conceptual value, I'm not really tempted to order another.

Appearance is dark brown with a thin layer of tan head. Nose is very roasty and dry with cocoa, dark fruit, and cream. Taste follows suit with emphasis on roast and chocolate. Flavors is somewhat light but boasts a big flavor for its light acolhol content. Mouthfeel is moderate with appropriate level of carbonation. Overall, this is a well executed sessionable stout.

On-tap at Northdown. A 3.5% Imperial Stout eh? Served in a pint glass.
A - Big tan foam settles to wisps, a thick collar, and splotches of lace. Very dark brown body.
S - Roasty, dry stout, with a good dose of toasted grains and hints of caramel, vanilla, and dusted cocoa.
T - Taste is similar, with dry, roasted nuts and grains, light char, and faint cocoa, vanilla, and caramel. Quite a bit of flavor for a sub-4%, and maintains a lot of the depth and profile of a far bigger stout.
M - Zesty carbonation, and medium-light in body. Dry, toasty, and crisp. Pretty much what you'd expect from a low-ABV stout.
D - A nice low alcohol option that's quite easy to drink. Nothing mind-blowing, but tasty and well-executed. Some people didn't 'get' the joke, which is a shame. I'd happily order this again if I came across it on-tap.
