Yellow Belly St. John's Stout

There's next to no head on this one at all, and it's nearly black - a very dark brown.

There's a subdued aroma of cold, dark coffee, and that's about it.

The flavour is fairly simple and direct - it's nice and roasty with some chocolate and espresso/coffee beans. It's got a nice, dark, "gritty" flavour, without the grit.

The carbonation's really low. It's a bit thin and watery, but still pretty smooth. It may need to be a bit more viscous and perhaps a bit more carbonated. The finish is a bit wet for this "dry" stout.

A good brew overall - really drinkable, but could be a bit heartier.
