This was a very smooth, stout, pouring a deep brown color with a beige head. The toasted malts add a very pleasant flavor and color to the beer, while like other Broken Bow beers, the hops sneak in for a brief appearance.

Clear brown with ruby highlights and a big head. Aroma of roast and chalk with a sweet note. Taste roasty and slightly sweet, light-medium body. Roasty and prickly palate.

Can shared tonight by Dr Rob, thanks for the opportunity! Earthy chocolate and caramel with just a hint of hop. Nice brew.

1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Can from half time. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Has some lacing. Smells really, really off. Nowhere near like what a stout should smell like. Thin mouthfeel. Nit much on the tongue. Probably one of the worst stouts I’ve had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Sampled at TapNY, 4/26/14
Aroma: The aroma is clean and roasty, with some chocolate
Appearance: It pours a light brown color with a beige-brown head
Flavor: The flavor is mid-sweet, clean, with minimal bitterness
Palate: The body is creamy, leaning light, soft carbonation, with a solid mouthfeel
Looks like I enjoyed this one a good amount more than most of the previous raters. The sample I had was simple, but enjoyable. Roast and chocolate, easy drinking, creamy, and smooth.

Pouring at the Hudson River Fest in Beacon. Pours a lightly hazed ruby brown with a medium sized beige head. Soft roast, light cocoa on the nose. Tangy, lightly papery chocolate. Cocoa crackers, malt and toast. Medium-bodied, grainy paper, cocoa. Chocolate, roast. Thin and a bit weak overall.

Looks great. Beyond that very disappointing.
Taste is reminiscent of cheap cola.

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Nitro pour. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Smells of roasted malt. Taste is thin and the beer despite being at the brewery was served warm which took a lot of the enjoyment out of the beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro pour at Jimmy’s 43. Pours near black with a beige head. Lightly roasted malts, light malty sweetness, hints of chocolate, and low bitterness. Not bad.
