Blue Fin Stout

12oz single comes with a notched label with a “Best Before” date.
Poured into the sampler glass, this gives a jet black body with minimal orange/red highlights. An espresso colored head, and some very scant lace.
A somewhat fishy/lactose character to the taste which is not that attractive. Certainly dry, but it really lacks the subtlety of some other, better dry stouts. This has more bitterness up front, and doesn’t really produce an especially drinkable beer.
Mouthfeel lacks presence, and a lingering acidity reduces drinkability and the desire for more.
Another beer hat I bet would be infinitely better on-tap, fresh and near the source. Ho-Hum, it’s one and done.
