Flavor

Dark malt offers a touch of roast flavor before swiftly shifting to vanilla, lactose, and a dark chocolate that sticks to the back of the tongue. English Fuggle hops offer a slight balance of bitterness. High ABV is masked well.

Mouthfeel

The mouthfeel is smooth with a medium-heavy body and low carbonation.

Overall

If you’re in the mood for a dark beer on the sweet the side, the Granite Stout could be your brew. Although its flavor and feel are more akin to a Milk Stout instead of an American Stout. The palate does become more balanced as the beer warms, but it’s still too sugary for the style.
