On rap. At blend. Looks nice, dark black, light tan head. Aroma is roasty, but a little funky. Stale malt, mulch. Taste is barley, seashell , veggie. Feel is a bit silty, but not too much.

Not impressed.

This was a watery, distasteful stout.

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.
