Old #38 Stout

Old #38 Stout (North Coast)

Ratebeer 3.51 88th percentile
Beer Advocate B+

Taste +3

The nose is stronger than expected from a light stout; very pronounced coffee, licorice and faded chocolate are very apparent. Oddly the taste is a little lighter than expected from the strong nose, just on the good side of watery. There is just enough coffee, roasted malt and bitter chocolate to go around the mouth. It more malty than bittery.

Aftertaste +1

The roasted malt lingers just a little bit, but it feel a little burnt.

Alcohol Content 0 5.6%

Value 0

It was nice, but if I want a stout I will go for a powerhouse or a Murphy's.

Ingame Enhancement 0

I should take up jogging; last night I dreamt about zombies.

Overall 4/10

It was nice stout, but a little watery.
