On Tap (Nitro)

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

Black in color with a thin and creamy head after the cascading nitro pour. Decent lacing--I couldn't expect anything more from this beer.

Faint aroma. Some slight roasted malt and grain presence.

Not a lot of flavor going on either. Some slight malt, a touch of roasted malt, and a bit of sweetness. Goes away quickly.

Thin mouthfeel.

A simple, undefined, uninteresting dry stout.

Serving type: nitro-tap

On tap at Jean Bonnett Tavern in Bedford, PA.

Appearance is very much like Guinness. Dark ruby highlights with cascading head. Though not as bubbly as Guinness.

Smell is lacking and devoid of anything in particular.

Taste is really thin and watery. For a Dry Stout, this was lacking any the depth of malt flavor or bitterness. I was not expecting a malt bomb given the low abv but was expecting something with a little more heft to it.

Overall, a disappointing Dry Stout. Ready to move on to something else.

On nitro at Beachwood BBQ

A: Dark brown, almost black, in color with the anticipated creamy tan head to go with it.

S: Smells pretty off-putting at first--a lot of vegetal aromas. Once you get past those, there is some coffee and chicory with a good enough roasted malt character.

T: The flavor is disappointing as well in that it's highly watery. Coffee and coffee grounds, along with a touch of roast and dark chocolate, but a lot of water in there, too.

M: Thin and watery with a the usual low but smooth nitro carbonation.

O: Overall a real let down. The watery nature of it just ruined the beer for me.
