3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A very simple, slim, dry and roasted stout. Basic session beer with good drinkability.
How: Growler, shared by someone, paper rating with no context.
The look: Black body topped by a very small tan head.
In long: Nose is basic roast and light chocolaty notes. A somewhat thin body with an active carbonation. Taste is very roasty, burnt grainy malts, chocolate notes. A mild bitterness that seems mostly roast-related. Overall quite dry which makes it easy drinking. Not a lot to say about a very simple beer like this but what it lacks in complexity (it is a VERY simple beer) it makes up in drinkability. Deserves a passing grade. Rating beers is really a great hobby the way the Great Depression was really a great depression.

Growler from the brewery. Black, chocolatey tan head. Lots of roast in pleasant aroma. Taste - lots of dry roast up front over a creamy body. Some milk chocolate in finish. Body is a bit watery. This is a nice stout with lots of flavour and very easy to drink without ever getting too complex.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pint at The Loon. Deep brown black with a thin mocha head. Oddly barfy with a bit of roasted malt character, wet cigar ash, not good. Medium body, softer effervescence. Slightly better than the nose, less gross, a little more dark roasted malt, still not great; dry with limited bitterness and a decent, slightly watery finish.
