A- Pours a nice head from a 12 oz. bottle into a stout glass. Good head retention remains over a dark colored stout.
S- Really nice coffee, chocolate, and dark fruit. Really nice element of sweetness that remains completely in check.
T- Perfectly in keeping with the smell and extremely well balanced. The coffee, chocolate, and balanced roasted sweet flavors are all there.
M- This is enjoyable because it isn't thin, it's right in the sweet spot of easy drinking stout perfection. It coats the palate and leaves a nice moderate stickiness behind. I'm appreciating the lack of effervescence as I feel that any of that would be distracting.
O- I've paid twice as much for stouts that aren't this good. It's certainly in the running to become a fridge regular.
