Commenting on the appearance of a stout at this point is an exercise in repetition. It's dark colored, can't really see through it, there is an off-white head probably tan. If you can't get the appearance right the rest of the review is most likely going to suck.

Appearance is good. Oh, the head fell faster than normal. Take that for what its worth.

Very clean aroma, I think I'm picking up more scent from the glass than the beer. Hints of sweetness and chocolate. Not a heavy dose of roasted grain but also not hop heavy, nice and smooth.

Smooth, creamy and somewhat chocolate flavor. Ringing hop bitterness shows up but doesn't dominate. Roasted grain enters the auditorium, says hi, then takes a seat to watch the show. Super smooth with a firm bitterness to clean it up. Malty like Whoppers or a Wendy's Frosty. Finishes with a bitter hop bite. Medium to full, silky body.

I really liked the cleanliness of this beer's flavor. My one complaint is the hop bitterness was a bit assertive at the very end, and finally the taste lands on an acrid roasted grain note. But overall the drinking experience was smooth and satisfying. Tantalizingly close to being a straight up clone of a Wendy's Frosty, only the hop bitterness pulled it back from greatness. Would love to have this same beer with a lingering malty chocolate finish, just let up on the hops a tiny bit.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Served on nitro tap at Farmhouse in Burlington.
Serves up soooo nice looking, jet black body with half a finger of thick creamy khaki head.
Not a high volume of aromas, but it was rich and roasty, good sweetness.
Taste was delicious touch on the thin side.
Mouthfeel was silky, velvety a touch thin.
Overall, a lot to like with this beer.

Serving type: nitro-tap
