Listed on BA as an English stout, I found this one in my local grocery store (where you can get a pretty good selection of craft beers). I haven’t had a lot of English stouts, but from what I have tried, this one certainly deserves to be listed up high on the list.
Very black with a nice one finger tan head that lasted the whole glass and left good lacing.
Aroma is chocolate, coffee, some roastiness, butterscotch, and a little molasses.
Flavor is very nice. The chocolate is milky, there’s some nice roasty malt character with slight burnt notes, a little coffee, and a lightly bittersweet finish.
Body is pretty thick and rich, yet easy to drink, with a dry finish and smooth creamy carbonation.
Overall it’s a damn tasty brew and one of Magic Hat’s best. I’m definitely picking up a sixer of this one soon!
