look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

This is the slowest settling head I've ever seen. Deep brown color where light passes along the edges. Thick, rich beige head that remains throughout the tasting. There's a blanket of lace that slides down the glass slowly after every sip.

Near burnt toast aroma. Not as coffee-ish as many dry stouts, but still very appealing.

The flavor is more burnt than the smell but still no coffee. The body is good or the style with an elevated carbonation level. The aftertaste is of burnt toast.

Serving type: nitro-tap
