2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2010 On tap at the brewery’s taphouse on 11/12/10. The chalkboard claimed this has a 5% ABV with 30 IBU. Pours out a very dark brown with a huge rocky brown head, but dissipates quickly into a small cap. Smelled like chocolate maple syrup with maltiness. Taste is slightly woodier, with some cocoa and light oat flavoring. Finish is really creamy. Only problem is that it’s waaay too medium-light bodied. No stout should be below 6-7% unless it’s as well made as Samuel Smith.
