Had this at New England Brewing Tap Takeover night at New York Pizza and Pasta Co. in Plainfield, CT this past weekend.
Poured a beautiful ebony in color with a dark cream head that produced some beautiful lacing down the sides of the glass.
First whiff came up with the essensce of the roasted malts, giving off coffee/dark chocolate aroma. This is very pleasant. Noticed a slight bit of alcohol in it, not much.
Taste - I had high expectations of this one ever since I saw it come out this past year. This one met it all. Very dark and rich with it's malty flavors. Coffee taste with a nice hops bite. The hops really help mellow out this amazing stout.
Mouthfeel - full bodied, well brewed. The carbonation is on point for a stout of this stature.
Overall - I would definitely have again. What an amazing Connecticut brewed beer. Can't wait for the colder months to arrive so I can fully enjoy this!
Serving type: on-tap
