Poured clear with a single finger of tan foam that lasted seconds before completely disappearing. Minor lacing.
Lots of roasted malt on the nose. Some chocolate, mild coffee, and a hint of earthiness (hops).
Roasted malt up front, the middle follows with some chocolate and small coffee, finishes with more chocolate and nice creaminess.
Creamy and medium carbonation. Good mouth feel. A touch on the thin side.
Not an amazing stout, just a quality stout. Might be a little too much carbonation for me but still a good drinker. If you enjoy stouts and aren't looking just for huge stouts, this would be a good try. Also, if you are just getting into stouts, this might help you get rolling as it isn't an over the top stout. Enjoy!
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
