North Coast Old No. 38 Stout
North Coast Old No. 38 Stout from Bob Pack in a beer trade. The beer pours a black color with a bubbly beige colored head. The aroma consists of dark chocolate, sweet caramel, vanilla, and molasses. The taste is smooth and chocolaty with a nice roasted malt flavor and a great molasses accent. There are touches of vanilla and caramel, and the finish is dry and toasty. The alcohol content is 5.6% ABV. I really enjoyed the dark chocolate flavors in this beer with great molasses and caramel accents. It was quite the Irish dry stout, and I would love to get my hands on another beer.
