This stout appears a deep brown with a small tan head that dissipates very quickly. The nose is very lacking and the malt is the only noticeable aroma which is minimal at best. The mouthfeel is very thin and watered down. The taste is very strong and bitter, almost porter like – not the stout quality you are looking for. Overall, this one is disappointing. For me personally, I feel like there are so many better complex stouts out there and this one just doesn’t compete.
