Cobblestone Stout

3.5

Brewery: Mill St. Brewery

Type: Stout

ABV: 4.2%

IBU: 30

Appearance / Aroma: Strong smell of roasted malt with notes of something tangy. The head is creamy and dense with an buttery brown color – it actually feels like whipped cream. The beer itself is a very dark black. A small amount of light shines through with my phone’s flashlight pressed against the back of the glass.

Taste / Feel: The taste has a toasty malt flavor with notes of coffee and a slight smokiness. The aftertaste also shows signs of raisins as well. It actually tastes how I feel a Guinness ought to taste. It’s natural, creamy, and the exhale brings the roasted malt back with hints of chocolate.

There’s also little to no carbonation, as is typical for a nitrogen beer. It works well, providing more for the texture.

Also fairly sweet with low ABV. I feel like I’d enjoy it a little better if the ABV was higher.

No bitterness to speak of.

    It looks quite daunting but also quite elegant. I’m intrigued.
