3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber (after climbing Beech Mountain with the family). Pours a deep brown with a large tan head of foam. Aromas are nice and stouty... Roasted malts, licorice, a bit of charcoal and a hint of cream. Flavor is similar, but a little thin lots of licorice and leather. I wish the mouthfeel was a little fuller, but this is a very nice stout.

Bottle from Brewtopia. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Roasted chocolate malt on the nose. The chocolate on the tongue is ice up front but it fades a bit as the beer warms. Nice amount of bitterness on the finish to keeps things tight.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. The taste has a dry finish but doesn’t make you run for a glass of water like most. Smooth mouthfeel and proper carbonation. A great representation of the style.

Some coffee on the nose, but not overwhelming. Taste is typical stout, but not in your face or overwhelmingly so. Nice and surprisingly refreshing.
