2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pros: Can’t think of anything specific. It’s not foul.
Cons: Color is a touch light. Nose is vibrant, but doesn’t show any complex malts, or describable character. Really overly sweet and fruity, off balance. Thin mouth feel.
A below average stout.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black-brown pour. Nose of light roast malt, brown sugar, cream, and cocoa. Flavor is cocoa/chocolate, brown sugar, and a trail of faint roast malt. Thin. Boring.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nearly black, foamy cappuccino head. Copious lacing. Nose is reminiscent of Postum, a malt tea my mother used to drink. Notes of chocolate, roasted grain, and coffee. Taste is nicely balanced; quite sweet, but with some complexity. Full body, lively carbonation. Quite good brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Faint aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, and some coffee bean. Ebony black in color, little to no head...tan in color. Sweet roasted malt is the first taste. Has an off flavor of wet cardboard. Flavors of dark chocolate, and coffee also blended in. Mouth feel is slick with mildly bittersweet finish. I will revisit again as I purchased from craft your own six pack section...may have been a bad bottle.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a noisy black (glub, glub, glub noise) leaves the same color body with a decent one finger white foamy head, light adequate lacing; smell is somewhat roasty yet still the oatmeal is there and kinda comes through in a bland sort of way; the taste is better as there’s some bitter underones to it; slightly roasty; fairly easy on the palate; overall decent oatmeal stout but nothing special

Pours a dark brown color woth a nice head that faeds quickly leaving only bits of lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate with a trace of coffee and bit of grain. Taste of roasted malt, chocolate, chocolate, bit of coffee and caramel. Mild bitterness witha bit of a malty finish. Full body, smooth and creamy. Nicely balanced. Enjoyable beer that goes down easy.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose is roasty with a lot of oatmeal coming off it. Taste is definitely oatmeal-filled, but with a slight bit of sweetness in there. Decent drink.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle pours a black color with a brown hue with a small tan head that dissapated quickly and leaves light lacing. Smells of roasted malt, dark chocolate and oatmeal. Tastes of the same things in the smell, maybe a little smoke flavor there as well. Mouthfeel is medium and creamy with light carbonation. Overall its probably one of my least favorite beers from Alaskan. Not much going on. Correction bottle says 6.2 abv instead of the 5.7 listed. Not going to seek this out again. Nice to try though.

Had while on an Alaskan cruise. Probably the worst one I had by the brewery. Not many flavors and the ones there were just weren’t quality.
