Good Boy was the second of three stouts of a rainy day stout tasting/craving. (8 Ball, Good Boy, Duck Rabbit)
Very close to perfect, a little drier than 8Ball, and a little bit higher %abv than I like.
I did enjoy it A LOT. Smells and looks like a good stout should. Good Boy!
Not too chocolatey, not too coffee-like, and overall a very, very good roasty balance.
Highly recommended if you have not had one.

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a very dark brown body with a diminutive, light beige head.

Smell: Chocolaty, carob aroma, a little bit nutty with a fruitiness akin to dates.

Taste: Robustly malty, with a good taste of chocolate, carob, and, as with the nose, it's a mite bit nutty. Moderately sweet. Dark fruitiness. Sugar-sweetened coffee. Restrained hop character only hinting of pepper and spice and with just a sliver of bitterness. Moderately roasty in the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Lightly creamy mouthfeel.

Overall: Will GB make you cry out GD? Uncertain. BUT, it's a tasty, likable stout.

Poured from a bottle to a glass. Had absolutely no head with a bit of sediment falling slowly from the top. Appearance resembled flat cola. Taste was a bit more complex. Chocolate notes early, finishing with a hint of dark roasted coffee. This beer tasted better as it sat out. I'd recommend letting this one warm up a tad before drinking. An average stout.

I enjoyed this bottle chilled in a pint glass.

The color is black opaque with quick falling head with a ring of beads light tan in color with stringy lace that sticks. The smell is somewhat sweet with caramel smell with mild vanilla with an almost nutty roast smell and light yeast bready dark toast scent. The feel has a mild sweetness with strong roasted texture and moderate carbonation with almost char-like burnt malt with acrid semi-bitter finish.

The taste is very roasted in focus with slight sweet almost creamy caramel flavor and perhaps a mild raisin-like toasted flavor mid palate with an almost burnt taste toward the finish with semi-dry and lightly creamy smooth flavor with some dry malt flavor that lingers after the swallow. This is a pretty decent stout with a little age on it, still drinkable if not the best example of the style.
