8-Ball Stout

Lost Coast Brewery (Eureka, CA)
"Our Eight Ball Stout is not for the faint of heart. It’s bold as hell and robust as can be, but it’ll reward your palate like no other stout. Roasted malts and heavy hops give it a flavor that will have you pouring another before you’re even finished with the first."

I love stout beers ... and this is a pretty good one. Not sure why they would describe this beer as "bold". It is nowhere near as rich and full-bodied as others I've enjoyed. Let's call it understated ... but tasty none the less.
Chocolate and roasted malt with a very subtle undertone of citrus and a dry finish. Delicious and oh so drinkable ... perhaps too drinkable.
Certainly my new favorite from Lost Coast.

5.8% ABV, 28 IBU
