guest nitro tap at rochester mills brewpub. notes from last new year's.

a - black in color with the typical finger of dense creamy head. foam completely coats the inside of the glass.

s - faint roast, faint cola. not much going on here.

t - roasted malt with dark chocolate notes. has a lingering, espresso like bitterness. finishes dry.

m - medium in body with lighter carbonation. very smooth as expected.

o - pretty good but nothing memorable. would oder it again it i saw it on tap.

On tap at the Park Bar in Detroit.

What a flimsy looking beer. Brownish and ruby-crimson, pretty damn light for a stout. A tight, java cap forms on tap with good retention, but leaves virtually no lacing behind. Acidic, astringency, and overly roasted, almost-tart dark fruit skins on the nose. Not very good, and nothing really "stout" about it, except for the roast. The flavor is a bit better, but not much. Bitter chocolate, bitter coffee beans, astringent apple skins, and malt that is way too roasty. Carbonated to hell, prickly mouth feel and a dry, scraping finish.

What a disappointment. Have never expected much from Arcadia... This is proof as to why. Just a messy stout that really doesn't even deserve to be called a stout. Avoid this one at all costs, the Midwest has much better stouts to offer.
