Street Brawler Stout

 Buffalo, New York's Pearl Street Grill and Brewery offers a nice stout known as Street Brawler. I had occasion to sample one late one evening during a trip to the Buff, and found it quite to my liking. Street Brawler was billed as an Irish-style oatmeal stout. It contained 4.5% alcohol and came in a plastic cup. S.B. arrived a very dark brown, almost black, topped with a creamy head.  It has a roasty malt aroma, with tobacco notes and a touch of cacao. The flavour is relatively bitter, with pronounced tobacco notes. There are elements of roasted dark malts and some molasses.
 This is a pretty nice stout.  It has an interesting flavour, but a bit more booze would be nice.  A fine brew worth sampling if you find yourself in Buffalo.

Rating: 7.5 out of 10.
