2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampler at the brewpub. A darkest red and clear in the glass. Small light beige head. Toasted malt and low coffee on the nose, hints of allmonds. Taste is more malty, low toasted, more fruity. A light one of its kind.

again 5th percentile seems a tad harsh, but it’s brown - not a good color for a stout. the chocolate is there, but on the weak side. overall, an ok light porter, but a poor stout.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Where and how: at brewery (sampler)
Aroma milder nose, notes of chocolate with hints of black forest cake.
Top: medium off-white with lace on glass.
Base: garnet, hazy.
Palate : medium thinner body. Felt too soft , lacking bit of edge.
Taste: up front – chocolate. Feel of sweet stout. Chocolate flavor was good. Hops were hidden under.
other notes I found to be too sweet.

On tap at the Brew Pub at Boulder. Nice dark cloudy pour. Nice roasted malt and chocolate flavor. Thin on the body and flavors. I did get the free beer with the T-shirt I bought though.

Decent but unusual. Had at the brewpub. Reddish. Standard nose but light. Palate is lacking a bit of malt but is decent. Just not greater.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very disappointed by my favorite style beer. Pours a deep red with a tan top. Does not have the malt character normally associated with a stout. Lots of caramel rather than roasted. Good body but bitter finish from high hop content.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2012 Looks a little pale watery. Smells fine. Flavor has quite a bit of hops up front. Not very heavy. Good but doesn’t seem real stouty. G
Had again and it was a bit soured

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours dark brown with a thin tan head. Smells earthy. Tastes of roasted malt and earthy with a light mouthfeel. Tastes more like a brown ale.
