A very ordinary, not very stouty stout.

Moderate head immediately dissipates and doesn't leave even so much as a ring. Cola coloured brew.

Subdued nose, primarily malt and caramel. Taste is about the same, gentle malt and caramel, a touch of charcoal. Mouth feel is tart to begin, finishes slightly drying. Stout light is what this is I guess. Drinkable and inoffensive, but no real excitement in the glass.

Purchased at the LCBO served at 8deg C in a tulip glass

A- Very good. Opens well and pours dark

S- Pretty good. Malty that's for sure. Caramel

T- Not so good. Dry yes flavor no. Sorry but this one is a dud

M- Not so good. Dry and tart. Not stout material at all

O- Not so good. This rating is higher than I should give.

Food Pairing

This unusual beer would go well with... grilled cheese sandwiches

Enjoy

Very dark pour but with a very light head. The smell was mostly of sweet malt and a little bit of floral notes on the end. The taste was a lot of heavy caramel flavor with the floral hops cutting the end for a clean refreshing finish. The biggest problem I had with the beer is that it was very thin for a stout. Overall I thought it was an interesting take on stouts and thought it was worth the try.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Serving Type: 12oz bottle in a pint glass.

Appearance: This pours a dark brown, with little foam.

Smell: Maybe a slightly roasted aroma, but nothing much to speak of.

Taste: Roasty, nutty, bitter. More full flavored than a typical Irish stout. Very good.

Mouthfeel: Very light, medium-high carbonation. Goes down easy as expected.

Overall: I am a big fan of Irish stouts. This is a great American, non-nitro take on the style. Relatively straightforward but still very rewarding.
