712. John Harvard's XX Export Stout

Jadyn and I went to John Harvard's two Fridays ago. I had their Demon DPA on cask while we were waiting for a table and then had the XX Export Stout with dinner, and a half a glass with dessert.

Beer Stats:

Alcohol: ?
Serving: Tap
Style: Foreign / Export Stout, BJCP Style Guide

Appearance (4.0): Pours an opaque, jet black. The head is a brown, wispy film.

Smell (3.5): Stoutish. Roasty malts with nice coffee and chocolate hints.

Taste (4.0): The high carbonation creates a tingly sensation upfront. Lightly sweet throughout. Moves into a nice dark-chocolate and coffee finish that impart a light, lingering bitterness to the finish.

Mouthfeel (4.0): High-carbonation. Light, but smooth and velvety.

Drinkability (4.0): A nice balanced stout that's very tasty.

Overall (3.9): A very nice stout, perhaps a little light for the style, but very good nonetheless.
