Review: Blue Fin Stout

Blue Fin Stout from Shipyard Brewing Co.
Rating: B

Appearance: Completely opaque, with a full light brown head which exhibits very good retention. Nice lacing.

Smell: Cocoa powder, with a bit of a burnt edge. Not a particularly aromatic beer.

Taste: Quite dry, roasted barley being the most prominent flavor. A little too burnt for my taste. More day old coffee than chocolate in the middle. Lingering aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium body, perhaps a bit overcarbonated.

Drinkability: Fairly average for the style. Turning the second glass into an ice cream float.
