Smelled like wet dog. It was fine otherwise, a nice enough low-alcohol stout, but I couldn't get past the smell enough to ever justify a repeat purchase.

Very nice look and Oh so smooth! Maybe a little too sweet for some, but it went very well with the pizza! Nitrogen pour. I Bella Notte, Pittsburgh Strip after dropping Alea of to go back to VOH.

Pretty good stout here. Poured out of a bottle into a gravity glass. Not much of a head, but the taste is very good, with a heavy hint of coffee to it, slight chocolate taste but not overpoweringly sweet. Feels good, very smooth, creamy texture. Pretty carbonated. It's even better on tap, and they should totally get a nitro bottle of this produced.

Black in color with no penetration to light. There's a fingernail of beiger around the rim and the vast majority of the top. The aroma is chock full of dark malt and creamy lactose. The flavor is primarily that of sweet dark malt. The mouth is silky smooth and creamy.

Pours a deep brown with a thin tan head. Doesn't last but still manages some spots of lacing. The aroma is dark roasted malt with a with some sweet dark fruit and earthy notes. The taste is much the same. The body is a little lighter but pretty smooth.
