Celt and Stout

Green Man Celt 6.5%

500 ml bottle poured into a glass mug.

Pours a rich dark brown with noticeable amounts of red peaking through the faint translucency. Smells of roasted barley, oak, vanilla and alcohol. Taste is roasted bitterness, pronounced malty sweetness, and alcohol heat. Medium body with light carbonation and a slick lingering finish. Definitely more of a sipper. A solid offering.

Green Man Stout 7%

500 ml bottle poured into a glass mug.

Pours an opaque dark brown, almost black with a thin, quickly dissipating, tan head. Aroma is roasted barley, coffee, hints of chocolate and dark fruit like plum. Taste is roasted bitterness with firm malty sweetness and alcohol. Body is on the heavier side. Light carbonation and finish that is lingering but doesn't coat the tongue. A sipper for sure, but not hard to finish a glass on a cold night. My favorite offering from Green Man so far.
