A - I guess I poured it too hard since I got two inches of deep mocha head. As a light Irish stout I am also impressed how deeply opaque the beer is if not pitch black.
S - Has a touch of yeast and roast. Really mild if any chocolate. Smells kind of like a black lager.
T - Not too sweet or roasty but it does have a mild bit of dark chocolate tone to it. The finish is quite crisp giving me some balanced hops and a nice bit of dry yeast that flows into the next sip.
M - Medium bodied and quite creamy. An easy going Irish stout.
Overall damn I am not sure why I haven't found this around PA but this is a great session stout with just enough flavor to keep me interested. Really filled my craving for a stout.

Pours a deep brown color with an airy tan head that settles into a light cap.

The aroma is of roasted barley with some charred wood. Some scorched caramel as well. Pretty much spot on for the style.

The taste is of a mild roast, slightly bitter with a metallic twang. Some caramel and milk sugar sweetness. Finishes with a woody flavor. Simple but flavorful, nice to see a quality irish stout.

Moderate feel with fizzy carbonation. Only slightly bitter on the palate so this is very easy to drink.

A nice simple dry stout. Good flavors, not grainy or watery. I dig that it is under 5%abv.

Served on-tap at The Village Pourhouse in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours an opaque very black (almost jet black but not quite that dark) in color with some light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation at the surface and some deep garnet red highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy/frothy light tan head that slowly reduces to a very thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a thick ring at the edge of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light aromas of roasted malts with just a hint of dark malts.

T: Light to moderate flavors of roasted and dark malts with just the lightest hint of burnt malts. Very light amounts of bitterness which fade almost immediately.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Light and airy, giving a slightly thin feel and some light dryness in the finish.

O: Super easy to drink and very sessionable with well hidden alcohol - very light in the mouthfeel. Not overly complex in smell or taste but this one would be great on nitro.

I poured a finger of head over this dark brown beer. It disappeared in about a minute. No lacing.

Smells of sweet, roasted malt. Bare hint of chocolate.

Sweet up front. Goes dry and lightly bitter after the initial sweetness. End/after taste has a slight bit of chocolate.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied. It is quite creamy.

A. It's basically pure black with a two-finger foamy tan head that dissipates fairly quickly leaving a bit of lacing behind.

S. Very strong nutty malt scent.

T/M. It has a dry metallic flavor. Some nuttiness underneath. Roasted malts to give it a burnt flavor. A hint of chocolate. Tingly on the palate.

O. I nice, if not very special. Nothing really jumps out, it's very unassuming. But it's not bad in any way. Refreshing and a nice session stout feel to it.
