I had this on tap at Bobbique in Patchogue, NY and was served this with a platter of ribs. I thought it looked fine with a small head and its aroma was okay with coffee tinged malts, but nothing fancy for a winter ale. When I got the first taste, I thought it must be the bbq ribs, so I had water and bread before trying again. It may have needed a little time to warm up after coming through a cold tap. It tasted like a black version of Euro- pale lagers with nothing in body or taste. Not bad, but no substance to it. I consumed half the pint and then moved on to something else.
Serving type: on-tap

I held this one longer than I should
Appearance: Black as night, doesn't even give a ruby edge when back lit. Holds a white halo of foam and a thin cover.
Smell: Mild searthy hop, cleanly fermented malt, roasted barley, a hint of smoke.
Taste: Some stout flavors, the roasted barley in particular, a slight almost lactic milk stout sweetness, then goes very clean and balanced. Finishes with a light chalky dryness.
Mouthfeel: Medium body, slick texture, firm but moderate carbonation.
Overall: A nice sipper! Good flavor kept in check, balanced, easy to enjoy.
Serving type: bottle
