This is a stout? I wasn't to impressed with it other then its appearance and smell - this was an average stout. But since its a DogfishHead I gave them the benefit of the doubt. Color was very dark brown and had a solid froth of light tan hues. Smell was nice, little smokey, some hop presence, cocoa, and grainy wild rice maybe. Taste was a little watery and not solid enough for a stout for me. It has some smokey grain, coffee thing going on, nice hints, but not enough for an eyebrow raise. Felt a bit creamy and finished a tad lighter then I was expecting. Some bitterness from the hops and a hint of smoked grain or cocoa lingers. Its just below a good stout in my book. Could be bolder and thicker. Actually wouldn't serve bad for a summer stout.
