3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2012-13 12oz bottle served in a snifter at about 55F..
A good looking stout with an opaque, brown-tinged, black body topped by a well-proportioned, partially durable, mocha tan head. Lacing blankets the glass with every tip. Traces of sediment in the bottle after the pour.
Aroma: Notably hoppy, with more hop aroma than dark malts. Spicy with a hints of citrus and pepper.
Taste: The hops added a nice spicy tone to the rich dark-roasted malts that dominate the flavor.
Medium+ and "chewy" body with well-chosen, soft, medium carbonation.
O: A fine, hoppy American style stout, although lacking the punch to deserve classification as an imperial stout.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A - Reddish/brown head on top of motor oil black body.
S - Roasted espresso, pine and dried grapefruit rind, cocoa,
T - Follows the nose with fresh roasted espresso, roasted malts, green pine needles, cocoa. Citrus hops blast in on the finish to create a very fresh and clean bitterness.
M - Medium body with moderate tight carbonation.
Very focused flavors. The espresso flavor really stands out as fresh and high end tasting. The citrus and cocoa play off each other very well. The end result is a fantastic stout. Just did a blind taste test with this and 2 other very good stouts.
Serving type: bottle
