3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Once again the android Ratebeer mobile app didn’t record my rating, gotta love that...Anyway, the ever generous Hopscotch shared this one with me. Spicy herbal rye aroma, pepper, dark chocolate, and light smoke. Thick bodied, almost oily, but with a very a balanced finish. Spice, pepper, chocolate and roast flavors. Very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a nice and creamy nazelnut brown head. Aroma is a punch of hops and roasted malts. The roast is really robust, bitter cocoa powder, a fairly obvious smoke component, some roasted nuts and a bit of caramel. Hops are piney, a bit lemony and add a nice touch to the heavy roast. The taste is very roasted as well. Bitter, bitter espresso, hints of smoke, a wee bit of burnt caramel sweetness and just hops by the bucketload. Insanely bitter for a stout, just a facepunch of bitterness in the after taste. This is like a psyched up hybrid between Beer Geek Breakfast and Dark Hops. Screw balance, just hop it up. But as a hop lover, I can only indulge in the bitterness. A good beer to end the day.
