3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Blackberries galore, molasses-like dextrins and roasted malt bitterness roam about in this healthy, approachable Stout.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the blackness.
-The lengthy finish is mostly roasty, but also full of hop leafiness, while a light trail of molasses comes back to remind us of its earlier presence.
-I appreciate the fact that this is not nitroed.
-The baccate fruitiness does provide some dry, tart angles.
On tap at the brewpub.

Has a very dark brown color with no carbonation and a roasted smell. Taste is of roasted malt and finishes bitter. Overall it is not the best stout that I have had, but it is pretty good.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2008-06-11. Black body with a modest khaki head that fades. (3+) Very interesting aroma, very dry roast, extra dry cocoa, and a light touch of smoky burnt vegetations. Dry roasty flavour acquires a strong ashtray character to is as it goes on, dry roasty bitterness. I am really not digging this one. Average to thin palate. Not for me.

Had this in a bottle marked: Berkshire Mountain. I believe it to be the same stuff. It had pleasant roasty flavours and a well carbonated feel but, as I find with many sweet stouts, it came across as quite metallic in the mouth.
