3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2 oz. bottle- Pours brown to black with reddish highlights, the head is similar to a Belgian ale, thin with lively popping bubbles that dissipates fairly quickly. The aroma at first smelled like a Euro- lager, but then after a couple whiffs, a nice peppery spice like Belgian aroma came through. The flavor is roasted chocolate and very stout like, but what threw me was the carbonation and the palate, very Belgian or champagne like. Different, but not the greatest by any means.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Rattle’n’Hum. Pleasantly sweet, malty aroma. Stouterik (cute name) is a dry, peppery stout. There is not a lot of ester action, and it is nice on the palate. Pretty good.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark reddish brown with a small tan head. Nose is sweet chocolatey toasted malt, dried cherries, some caramel. Medium body, somewhat roasty malts, initial sweetness, and a musty yeast taste. Tastes slightly watery. Finish is just barely bitter, some more chocolate and earthiness.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
a toasty stout that is just a bit acrid and creamy with a vibrant pour and a brown head. a bit of fruit in there and an interesting sweetness that to me seemed rather complex.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beer bistro. Black, with a little permanent off-whte head, lace on the sides of the glass, and rising carbonation bubbles. Sourish aromas, mild roast as well. The mouthfeel is below average. The taste is a mild stout, with roast right there. Sourish roast, a tad astringent, in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black beer with a thick brown head. Nose is dark chocolate, dark fruits, roasted malts and some hops. Taste is very roasty, slightly acidic and peppery, with some sweetness running through to balance it out. Medium bodied, but that’s normal for a 4.5 ABV beer. Good stout!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured with a nice, light brown to tan, medium sized head and no lace. Color is an almost opaque dark brown with amber highlights. Nose is roast malt, cocoa, coffee, a hint of skunk. Flavor is a litlte like nose minus the skunk. Dry stout with a bit of fruit arond the edges. Not a lot of depth. Body is ok but carbonation is a little too fizzy for the style. Finish is like flavor with some legs. Neat label though.

pours dark brown, tan head.
aroma, some bitter dark fruits, yeasty nose, light chocolate malts.
flavors have the distinct Belgian stout approach keeping a nice yeasty profile that is not overdone.
Lots of good roasted malts, coffee, dry and grainy mouthfeel, hints of biscuits with a mild bitter chocolate finish.
Light abv and a beer full of flavors.
