3.28/5 rDev -14.8%
look: 2.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
P: 12 oz bottle
A: I thought the review before mine a fluke, but I had a HUGE head as well despite gentle pour. Entire case is like this. Over half the glass is foam and it takes quite a while to settle. Other than that, color is black.
S: Roasty, coffee. Nice.
T: Malty and roasted up front. Not much in the hop dept. Overall, good but average.
M: Very light, watery.
D: Due to above, very drinkable, except that it would take me hours to drink a few waiting for all the heads to die down. Pour 2 at once?
Notes: Saw this case and got excited. Had it on tap years ago at the brewery while in Maine. This bottle does not do the tap version justice. As far as the excessive head, ? problem at the brewery?

Served on tap in a pint glass
A: Jet black with a khaki head the grows legs and clings to the glass.
S: Very mild. Hints of chocolate and roasted malts.
T: Chocolate, roasted and dark malt, glimpse of coffee. Underlying hop bitterness that finishes dry.
M: Silky mouthfeel; a tad more than medium-bodied.
O: Hands down the best beer Gritty's offers. I would drink it again.
Serving type: nitro-tap
