Beer #900, I was gonna do a Watermelon-Rita but no way I was gonna waste that on a milestone.

This beer hits the ground running with a tarry black crude oil pour, only deepening as it fills the snifter. The head forms light brown to hot chocolate color, and sticks around at about a finger. Opacity, as to be expected, is 100%.

Aromas of roast barley, cured meats, dark coffee, and skim milk. Simple, not crowded, and right on key.

Flavors include medium and dark roast coffee - partially burnt, dark malts, salami, and kisses of chocolate here and there.

Mouthfeel is an explosion of carbonation. Like drinking a 7up. Thankfully this really helps to keep this stout going down the pipes. A semi-dry finish balances things out a bit. Nice coffee roastiness breathing out as it fades on the palate.

Uncommon Stout is not the original beast it claims to be; however it is an awesome stout with superior drinkability and a totally awesome carbonation that is needed in coffee stouts for them to be more enjoyable. Ill be back for this one and it's possible this is my favorite coffee-based stout now. Very sessionable.Best when enjoyed ice cold.
