Near black body; dark and opaque brownish hues; smooth, thick, creamy, sand-colored head. Gentle wafts of charred grain; baker's chocolate; coffee grounds. Mellow flavors that mirror the aroma; touch of vanilla; mild astringency. Medium bodied; smooth and velvety on the tongue; creamy; mild dry finish.

A mild yet deceptively complex dry stout that drinks easily and satisfies the senses.

07/11/13 At Rattle N Hum, NYC. On tap. Just a taste was enough for me. Member#28419's comment re Mentos & Coke was close to the mark. Lacks body & depth. Doubt I could struggle through a pint. Rate Beer touts "bottle condition"ing so perhaps I judge too harshly. Let's try to put the Genie back in the bottle 'cause this don't cut it.

Typical dry stout hoppiness up front, but a pleasant creamy finish.
