Picked up a 22oz bomber of this stout while in Massachusetts last week.
Presents with a nice pitch black body and no signs of light coming through. Initially topped with a creamy but airy light tan head, about 1" thick. Head faded rather quickly, but left a decent ring around the beer.
Aroma was heavy on the roasted notes of coffee and barley. Slightly sweet hints also make there way through, reminiscent of chocolate and mocha.
First taste reveals more of the sweeter flavors that are only slightly noticeable in the nose. The flavors are well balanced between the burnt and roasted flavors and the lighter sweet chocolate flavors. Finish presents with a bit of a bitterness, but its not at all unpleasant.
Mouthfeel is seems light, but then again, this not a Russian Imperial Stout or Double Stout, but rather a seemingly forgotten regular American Stout. I'm enjoying the creaminess but it does seem a bit airy, with more carbonation than a lot of other stouts.
Overall, I'm really liking this stout a lot. It seems like the RIS's, Double Stouts, and barrel aged stouts get all the attention these days, but its nice to have a plain old American Stout for a change. Simple, straightforward, and delicious.
