L: Pitch black with yellow granules suspended throughout the beer
S: faint brown sugar and molasses
T: Toasty malt and molasses mostly with a mild stale wheat finish
F: Good carbonation with a mouthfeel on the thinner side

Overall: It's okay stout but the little yellow granules can be unsettling to look at for a true beer snob.

This beer is gorgeous when poured. Great light bitterness and great all around dry stout.
