Helltown Brewing
"Perverse Stout"

LOOK: Black stout ish looking brew. Off white head forms and dissipates quickly.
SMELL: Potent nose with roasted and milk chocolate aromas.
TASTE: Roasted malt, strong coffee and bitter, unsweetened chocolate. Minor hops presence in the background adding to the bitterness with a small citrus note, but providing little more than that and some acidity to the mix.
FEEL: Full bodied, all things smooth, well carbonated. Lingering coffee like finish.
OVERALL: As I expected, a fantastic stout. More please! Helltown kicks ass!

Great English stout. Subtle hints of coffee, balanced nicely with roasted barely. Helltown makes some nice stuff. I'd recommend checking them out if you havent. This beer is similar to a breakfast stout, but without a super high ABV. Overall a nice drinkable stout!!! It's not mind blowing, but definitely meets the expectations.

pour is black with dark tan head, very tight creamy head. Nose is light, roasted coffee, hint of malt sweetness, and faint citrus hop. Taste is more roasted and well made coffee, a touch nutty, almost no bitterness with a hint of cream and faint citrusy hop. Body isn't overly thick or heavy, very creamy and smooth, extremely drinkable and well made.
