3.16/5 rDev -13.4%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25
Pours a very dark brown, basically black, not head except for some creamy bubbles around the rim.
Smells of light vanilla, cream, milk chocolate, something like lactose maybe?, fairly light aroma but nice.
Some tobacco flavor, milk and vanilla again, a touch of chocolate, light roast or coffee.
Pretty soft creamy mouthfeel, good carb, very drinkable stout.

Near black pour with just a hint of brown around the edges. Just shy of one finger khaki head. Very light retention. Very thin lace.
Nose is mainly milk chocolate. Light roast coffee and just a hint of hop presence.
Smooth milk chocolate hits first, followed by a sweet finish with a hint of tobacco. Light coffee and mild hops add to the dry end.
Pretty easy to drink. No risks here, just a decent glass of stout. Nice creamy body, without feeling heavy.
You could do worse than this if you want a dark beer in Nashville.

Poured from a growler to a pint glass.
Pours almost black, very appealing to the eye. Head poured to about 1 finger of a nice, dark khaki. Rapidly dissipates to a thin coating. Lacing is very fine, and notches as you drink.
Smell is a gentle roasted coffee with a hint of sharp hops.
As for taste, it is not as strong as I expected. It is a very well balanced flavor, starting with a nice sweet malt, a neutral middle, and a finish of vanilla and a hint of bitter hops.
The brew flows well over the tongue, very creamy and light. It lingers for a few moments and quietly fades out. Not drying in the least.
Overall, I was quite pleased with this local brew. It has definitely earned a spot as my session stout. An easy drinking stout with good, even taste that was quite good to drink. I am quite excited to pair it with some different food to see how it melds.
