Draft at Liberty Craft House in State College, celebrating St. Patrick's day and Jer's 40th birthday...jet black body with a pile of pillorous brown head that mushrooms atop the nonick; thick, resilient glass-clinging frothy tracing ...milky elements and earthy, peaty tones as well in the aroma....reasonably smooth with a palpable exit down the throat; leaves a noticeably dry, crunchy finish...speaking of crunchy, more hoppy than expected; lactic and sweet flavors dominate--pleasing to the palate...overall, a nuanced, balanced, swiftly emptying kind of stout....

Gorgeous head. The kind that when someone else orders it makes you wish you got that instead. Lots of spicy rye on the nose. Follows through on the first sip. Very smooth, from nitro, but at the price of overall body. Decent stout, but not a particularly big one. Drinkable, and goes down very easily; traits enhanced by being dry as opposed to the cloying sweetness some big stouts can have and by the slight bitterness that makes you want to return to the glass frequently.
