16oz growler from Chuck’s CD. Very black beer, big head pour from growler. I had a Halls before the beer due to this cough from fatherhood. What is it about having a baby and getting a cough? Do Halls desensitize my taste buds? Aroma is toasty and oatmealy with cocoa and light roast and acidity. Mouthfeel is lighter but not light. Flavor is more mineral wit the roast and roast coming forward, also drags some of the roast acidity. Just a hint of unsugary sweet black malts. Low hop, dry black malt aftertaste. Maybe it’s the fatherhood cough but I’m digging this sout that isn’t particularly special.

Black color with generous tan head. The strong roasted malt blends well with the citrusy hops.

Dark brown with a reddish hint. Light molassesy aroma with a hint of nuttiness. Sweet, touch of brown sugar, bit of foreign stout fruitiness, and just enough bitterness.

Darkened chocolate by with milk chocolate creme head that flattens, but remain thicker around the circumference. This one strikes a pleasant medium-chocolate roast in nose. The body has roastier accents, yet seems a bit watery. Altogether - nice profiles, though the body seems a bit underpowered.

Coffee notes, without being excessive. hints of chocolate. Very good stout with a great color and nose. Honestly one of my favorite stouts. Especially on those cold, wet, dreary northwest days.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Black with a nice head. Aroma of black malt, chocolate and light smoke. Flavor picks up more smoke and some coffee roastiness, nice dry finish. While I really liked this beer it lacked that something special to make it the best stout ever. Solid though and I think with some tweaking could be one of those outatanding beers I seek out time after time.
