3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
draft that poured a medium brown with white head. really not sure you can call this a stout versus a black ipa. if its a stout then the flavor is all wrong if its a black ipa then you are right on target medium roasted malt base with a huge hop nose. the flavor is more of the same nice hoppy flavor start to finish on a medium roasted malt base evenly balanced but you need to get the style right.

Draft. Dark brown color, brown head. Lots of ashy, roasty coffee, malt with a bit of chocolate and toffee. Dry, dry finish. Nothing too extraordinary, but when you want a 6% stout...

Draft at fireworks pizza Leesburg. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Some solid pine on the nose along with some roasted notes. A bit hop forward on the tongue for my taste but still flavorful and balanced. Finished clean.

Drank on tap at Backyard Ale House in Scranton, Pa. Pours a nice deep, dark, brown/black color with very little light brown head. Smells of chocolate and malts. A good brew, a little off putting taste in the beginning that grows on you.

This beer is named for fire crews. It’s appropriate this time of year because of all the work those people are doing 24/7 around here right now. It’s an excellent Stout. Couldn’t really get much better. Just needs more alcohol (make it Imperial).

Really good! Fairly dry, roasty, hint of smoke & tang. Plenty bitter. Fairly clean. Great appearance with a long lasting head & lots of lace. Suggestions of vanilla in finish.
