Today was spent doing a little clean up and plotting for post #366. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let's talk beer #358.
It's the Coke Oven stout from Rust Belt Brewing Company. This beer found its way to us thanks to a good friend who was doing a bit of traveling in Ohio, where Rust Belt is based.
The light barely penetrates the inky blackness of this stout. It has a thin tan head that's leaving just a bit of lacing in the glass. Smell is dark bread and grain...hints of chocolate. Nothing too crazy. It drinks with a thin mouthfeel. The flavor is bitter roast predominantly. There's underlying chocolate malt, bread and spices. I've had way better stouts. This one is average.
