2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Smokey undertones in its flavor. Highly carbonated for a stout. Drinkable but I wouldn’t
Go out of my way for it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Krampus can from UDBeernut) Pours black with ruby around the edges and a towering tan head that takes quite awhile to settle. When I see farmhouse ale on the can, and a towering tan head when poured, I automatically think this will be infected. Smell kind of confirms that, in that the aroma is a dead ringer for spent coffee grounds that develop that faint sour character. This smells like wet Folger’s grounds left overnight. This sweetens with warming a little, and some faint chocolate and roasted malt show up to balance this out a bit. Taste is fairly roasty with plenty of roasted malt, light cocoa, bad coffee, and perhaps a light tangy character. Finishes roasty. Mouthfeel is medium and carbonation is a little high. Aside from that initial smell, this beer is not too bad.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma - for a stout, I’d think it would be a little bit more full of aroma. This beer really doesn’t have much of one. A pretty small chocolate malt, which has to really be coaxed out after several swirls.
Appearance - body color is black; liquid is opaque; the head is beige and initially 1 1/2" sets into a slice of foam on top of the body
Taste - semi-sweet with some roasty malt, there is also a little chocolate malt
Palate - body is a medium; texture is a light creaminess; the carbonation is soft; finish is slightly bitter and medium in length

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sweet stout? This comes across as more of a watery dry stout. Decent chocolately malt aroma, ok dark pour w/ no head & little lacing, but a thin mouthfeel & lack of flavor. Not at all what I was expecting. Not a good stout by any means!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty mediocre stout. Pours black with a creamy head. Lots of chocolate flavor, and basically tastes like chocolate milk. Not much else going on though so it relies on that one note.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft, Pours dark black with small khaki head. Aroma is sugar, chocolate and vanilla. Taste is a milk chocolate. A bit thin but tastes good. Not an overpowering stout at all, almost like chocolate mild. OK at best.
