12 oz bottle, nonic pint

A – Mostly jet black. Faintly brown at the narrowest part of the glass, where light barely shines through. An inch of light tan head with moderate retention. Sudsy bubbles remain.

S – Mostly roasted black malt, moderately bitter. Touches of bitter chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Mostly bittering hops, perhaps some very light pine.

T – Roasted dark malts are prominent, toasty black bread. A lot of bitterness from the malts, some possibly from hops, but no real hop flavor.

M – Bitter from start to finish, a slight creamy smoothness in the background. Carbonation is, at most, moderate, slightly offsetting the bitterness. Medium dry finish.

O – This is much closer to a dry Irish stout than a milk stout, in all respects. I think it’s actually pretty good for an Irish stout, but that’s not really what the objective was. With that said, a very drinkable beer.

The flavor I noticed first would be a burnt coffee bean. Then the earthy notes quickly come into action. This stout does not over power with flavor and is easily drinkable . Not sure I would call it creamy though, but is quite smooth. Will get again.

While I won't say it's bad. I do have to say that for a stout it don't have a whole lot of flavor
