Very roasty and bitter. I'm more of a fan of creamy, more balanced stouts. Still worth a try considering the price point is decent. Had it on tap at work.

Draft served in a mini snifter

A - Black, with large light- tan bubbles around the edge of the glass 4

S - very little smell to it for a BA Stout. Slightly sweet odor. 2

T - super light, faintly roasts. I'd believe this was more of a porter than a barrel aged stout. Not as much sweetness as expected, but a bit of coffee. Not picking up any cocoa. 1.75

M - light and watery. Very thin for the style. 2

O - Does not hold up to the competition. Much less going on than in any other BA RIP I've had. 2

Burnt and roasted notes but they eventually get overwhelmed by too much sweetness. It as if someone dumped extra sugar into the beer. I had this problem with Bad Elmer's Porter so it seems to be a running error on the part of Upland.
