Love Stout

12 oz single from a recent trade.
Pour is the requisite black with very little light penetrating any part of the pour. Head is not huge, and the lace minimal. Thin ring of mocha lace acting as a collar on the surface of the beer.
Nose yields some soft, sweet malts and not too much in the way of bitterness.
Tastes are definitely on the “English” side of things meaning we have a sweeter, less aggressive stout with some smooth, subtle character and even some residual sugar in the finish. Hops are reserved. Although this is obviously not a sweet stout as such, it certainly has a decent amount of sugary elements and back seat taken by the hops highlight this whole feel.
Drinks smoothly, if a touch thin. A very gentle, prickly carbonation is present too.
Simple, easy and drinkable.
