Dry Stout

12oz stubbie bottle – a single. Pretty sure that this was left over from the CEO/Old Farts BIF, thanks to Vancer.
Black body with some orange highlights deep in the sampling glass. Head is gone quickly to reveal little or no lace.
Nose is promising with plenty of character with some milk chocolate malt notes.
First taste is quite bitter and the mouthfeel is rather thin. Typical mild roast with a touch of smoke – not much. A definite yeasty character which the label suggests is coming from the added yeast and the bottle conditioning.
Light and easy to drink, this feels like quite a thirst quencher. Finish is dryish (but not overwhelming) and this brew sits OK with me. Not something that I would consider buying in the bottle, but on tap and fresh I’d imagine it could be a satisfactory beer.
OK, and slightly above average.
