Obtained same-day in Woodbridge. Served in a pint.

Full disclosure, I must put it out there that I'm trying Ghost Pigeon for the first time only a few days after drinking Hill Farmstead's Everett and, as much as I'd like to review this beer independently, I know Everett will become my inevitable comparison.

A: Silky black with a cream head. Well done.

S: Milky chocolate.

T: Almost sour like a milk stout but not quite. Chocolate overpowers with a distinct milky-ness. Pleasant and drinkable.

M: This is where Everett comes in. Mouthfeel is one of the many things Hill does so very perfectly. Everett is silky, supple, and smooth. Unfortunately, Ghost Pigeon is a bit too watery for my taste and doesn't stack up in this category.

O: That said, I love NEBCo., and I was excited to try this beer as the first non-canned brew of theirs that I've had. I was not in any way disappointed, and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes stouts or porters and NEBCo. And, despite the fact that it pales in comparison to the aformentioned unfair comparison, it is extremely pleasant and drinkable. However, I'd probably get Gandhi if I had the choice again.

Surprise (at least to me) from New England Brewing. Poured into a tulip glass.

A) Nice deep dark black, small tan head which quickly dissipates.

S) The nose gives off some coffee and chocolate also sense a slight bitterness.

T) Charred coffee, cocoa with some licorice undertones. This finishes with a nice hoppy bitternes (40 IBU's). I like this combination.

M) Smooth and thin which I think is representative of the style.

O) Nice to have found this tasty treat. Hopefully it goes into the rotation.
