3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark malt aroma. Very smooth, a tad dry, with a coating mouthfeel. Brine comes through very subtly in the finish and dissipates in the aftertaste. Solid stout with the added dimension of brine. Good stuff.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Closed for Business, Charleston. Nice to see this one available, as I’d been wanting to try it and it seemed perfect for an unseasonably chilly evening. Handsome dark brown pour, thin to medium head that’s more crisp than silky. Nose nutty and chocolate aroma, mild sea salt and brine. Body is a bit thinner than ideal but the flavors were deep and rich, carrying the beer. Salt, roasted malts, chocolate, and some minerals. Some appealing grit in the finish too.

Bottle thanks to my brother! Pours a thick black with a thin tan, foamy head that laces nicely. Aroma of roasted malts, hint of coffee and dark chocolate, nice earthy notes. Taste follows with a back end of salty brine, but mostly just a solid stout. Dry finish, good stuff.
