3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Sander’s pace, NYC. Breakfast beer. Pours black with a small, rich beige head. Aroma is subtle roast and big milk chocolate. A good lacto presence here. Flavor REALLY doesn’t follow as I had expected. It is only faintly sweet, with a modest roastiness and mellow cocoa. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. The roasted malts in the finish are more pronounced, with notes of tobacco and ash, light burnt earth, and mild grassy bitterness. Easy to drink, just not very characterful. Aside from the aroma, this beer reminded me of a mild.

On tap at the brewpub. The pour is deep brown to just about black. They hit that on target. The aroma is of coffee and roasted malts. It had the aroma of a nice Porter. The body was thin to medium. The taste also had a nice coffee flavor and dark malts. It ended slightly dry.

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.

A nice sweet stout with good drinkability and roasted character. Aroma is slight, pours black, it’s what you would expect from a stout. Well done.

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.
