Had it at a place called "The Mellow Mushroom" in Charlottesville, VA. They had a bunch of beers on tap, some good, some not worth mentioning. I saw this one on the list and decided to give it a try. I'm happy that I did.
It came to me in a pint glass. It was dark in the place, but from what I could see, it had a good color. The head was small, but remained for the entirety.
It smelled very sweet, even borderline floral.
The taste was VERY sweet. It felt a little syrupy in the mouth, but after a couple of swigs one doesn't notice anymore. It starts to go down easy. Bit of an alcohol taste mixed in with the sweetness, but not to the point where it is overpowering.
Serving type: on-tap

On the rare occasions i buy beer, i buy craft. When I'm not drinking bourbon from the state of kentucky, i drink stouts from kentucky. Very good flavor. not good at picking up flavors. I just know i love this. I buy craft mainly to support microbreweries. Macrobreweries make low quality beers and charge an arm and a leg for them sometimes. Microbreweries make good quality beer for a similar price. The appearance is nice and dark. the smell is amazing, and the taste is also amazing. Mouthfeel is very complex but can't describe it. I had cigars while i was drinking this one. might be why i couldnt pick out any flavors.
Serving type: bottle
