On tap at World of Beer Coconut Creek, FL
First full pint stout I've committed myself to and i wasn't disappointed:
A- Dark Black/brown body w/ no light penetration. great thick tan-white head ~3/4"-1", still settling up as it was served. Served cold in a 12 oz (or 16, not positive) magner's cider glass.
S- Head gives off coffee aromas with some malty sweetness, smell develops as beer warms to more appropriate temperature; then more chocolate and espresso notes notes come out.
T- First sips after receiving beer and letting head settle are a bit harsh, on coffee w/ too much head. However this beer is not best ice cold but a little more warmed up, cool - lukewarm was the best flavor because the beer only improved as it finished. roasted coffee balance by 'chocolate' flavor, best described as a mocha flavor and the milky sweetness only adds to the mocha affect. only malt and roasty profile NO hop flavor which was what I was looking for in the stout for that night.
M- Creamy goodness from the head once it warms up, as it is very dense when ice cold off draft. The body of the beer however was on the thinner side of stouts w/no carbonation which was fine because it delivers strong flavor and the head compensates.
D- Very drinkable w/o too high ABV, could have easily had another. plan on drinking this again as it's easy to find on draft and in can/bottle at my WOB. Not so sweet even though its chocolatey.
