This was an okay stout at best. Found it a little difficult to finish the pint. The aftertaste wasn't so good. Maybe, they were tapping the bottom of the keg - seemed to have trouble filling the glass, because of the foam. Tried it at The Beer Exchange in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

Serving type: nitro-tap
