On tap at Brandon's, Pipestem

A- pours pitch black color with a small foamy light-brown head that reduces to a small ring around the glass, a touch of lace

S- slightly smoky roasted malt with hints of chocolate and coffee, earthy and herbal

T- semi-sweet chocolate up front mixed with smoky malt and bitter coffee, bone dry finish with more chocolate on the linger

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel, transitioning into a creamy dry finish, high drinkability

O- highly sessionable stout with nice smoky notes and plenty of chocolate. Could easily drink more than one at a time

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Arrives coal black with an impressive head that delivers a ton of lace

Smell: Roasty and ashy, with a hint of chocolate

Taste: Black bread, up front, with a roasty and ashy bitterness building in the middle; a hint of chocolate in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: This is still a pretty good Irish stout with a low ABV
