3.64/5 rDev +2.2%
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on March 11, 2014.
The color is very dark brown to nearly black with a quick lived mocha head that becomes a ring.
The aroma is not very extraordinary but it does bring out a sweet malt character, thin chocolate, and a feint earthy hop note.
The body is light to medium and on the creamy side.
The taste has a kind of cherry quality to it that I do not pick up on the nose along with the dark malts and a clean, dry finish like a dry stout should be.
Generally a drinkable beer.

12oz bottle, BB MAY 2014
L - dark brown with a creamy tan head that dissipates rather quickly
S - typical dry stout aroma with roasted barley, caramel, chocolate, earthy hop
T - roasted barley, chocolate, nut, earth, caramel, a bit toasty
F - thinner body, could use a bit more carbonation, but it does fizzle on the palate while finishing fairly dry
O - decent representation of the style, but there are better options available

Deep cola brown pours a touch thick but with a weak fizzy head that dissipated all too quickly.
A touch weak in the nose but it is startlingly dry. A dry roasted coffee, char and a bit smoky.
The flavor is weak and even a bit watery but it its still rather tasty. Dry chocolate malt, light char, Irish creme, coffee, tinges of alcohol and maybe caramel can be found.
The feel is too thin for a stout, a bit bubbly and sprite.
This is a good beer to introduce to a stout newcomer as its soft and thin but still has enough flavor to introduce.
