Had it on nitro. Very smooth. Silky like a nice chocolate milk.

Pours dark. A little thin. Smells of coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is deep hints of coffee chocolate and roasted malts. Slight hint of vanilla.

Pours seal brown with a solid head of khaki foam that gradually settles into a thin skim. Carbonation can be seen clinging to the glass before sporadically gravitating upward. Aroma smells of rich roasted malt and black coffee with hints of molasses, peat, and smoke. Traces of light, grassy hops peak out as well.

The taste features a surprising, peppery hop bite up front, along with savagely roasted malt (and I mean that in a good way). Hints of dark chocolate emerge in the middle and add some nice nuance to offset the bitterness. A brown sugar sweetness emerges with sufficient warming. Seltzer-like carbonation is way too high and muscles out the subtler aspects of the flavor. In spite of this, the medium-light body is smooth and quite quaffable.

Overall, this is a robust and roasty stout that has a little more bite than I prefer, however it remains quite drinkable nonetheless.

Had this on-tap at Bar Pastoral.

This stout drinks easily and goes well with food.
