Bottle from beer World of Largo, FL.

Aroma is full of roaste and burnt malts. Coffee is big as well and a slight chocolate sweetness. Black with a diminishing two finger thick mocha head. Fore is thin and watery, but some coffee and roasted malt pops out but it, naturally, comes off as watery coffee. Finish is a bit tinny as well, but it has a nice bitterness that lingers and while it needs to be a lot thicker it has the base flavor down...it just needs a lot more concentration of that flavor.

Served on nitro at the Ballston VA location.

Appearance: Extremely dark brown, approaching black. Creamy ivory colored head that is über-thick, just like a nitro stout should look. Reverse cascade effect and all that rot. The head stuck around for awhile and left clingy bits of foam at first and then thick sheets of lace at the end.

Smell: Faint breasy malts with chocolate and burnt malt/toast notes. Faint is the operative word here.

Taste: Burnt bready malts, slightly bitter, with mild black licorice on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and smooth, remarkably light (and in a good way).

Drinkability: Modelled on either Guinness or Murphy's, but better. Brewed for this store's celebration of St. Patrick's day. Still in good shape and relatively tasty if you like nitro-stouts. There are more flavorful stouts available, but this one wasn't bad. I'd get it if it were a regular at that location.
