On draft at Tap & Barrel, Vancouver.

Chocolate-amber with beige film that trails.
Tobacco, smoke, cherry and meat on the nose - more brown than stout.
Red berry, root beer, barky tang and chicory bite to end.
Cola finish and brown sugar linger.
Med, chewy, round.

Almost not a stout - lots of sugar, no roast, doesn't clean up after itself. Too sweet, no coffee, no chocolate and did I mention too sweet? Pinkie toe of God, maybe.
