3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I liked this one more than most other raters--I thought it had a more complex taste than others are giving it credit for. the aroma was smoked, peppery, vanilla, bourbon and coffee, with the same tastes along with a slight bitter grassy taste. Perhaps it was just different, after 15 tastes, but I thought it an enjoyable stout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at RNH. Pours a black body with an off white head. Light chocolate malt and a dry woody body. Simple and session able not bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark bodied with a brown underskin. Velvety, creamed chocolate head. Dry barley aroma that is lacking roast character. An idea of oats in the air. Smooth body, but no roast character. Pretty dull overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ RnH. Notes of smoky coffee and slight bacon, flavor is there but palate is far too thin for a stout IMO.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A creamy but somewhat off aroma. This is only okay. More creamy than dry, this beer doesn’t match up to the rest of their beers.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at RnH. Dry, chalky, thin and cabonic nose. Medium bodied, sloppy, carbonic and chalky flavor. Easy drinking. I am a big fan of the style (and the brewer) but this is just not well done at all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Dark black pour, 1/4 inch cookie colored head with a distinct peat aroma. Flavor was very smoky peat, chocolate and was creamy and lasting on the finish. Very good beer, I could see this pairing very well with BBQ.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose is dark and roasty with a hint of burnt malts and lightly tart. Pours dark brown, more or less black with a huge creamy tan head. The flavor is roasty and burnt with a subtle light sweetness and a hint of tartness from the portion of sour mash. Easy drinking yet flavorful. Smooth carbonation. Rather enjoyable IMO.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On nitro Tap At Elysian Fields Seattle. Pours out a creamy dark brown topped with a tan head. Aroma was of coffee and some dark roast malts. Taste was dark roast, a light smoke, some bitterness at the end. Not bad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rattle’n’Hum: Pours a very dark brown, very little to no head, very little carbonation. Aroma was very hard to catch, very faint. Obvious coffee, some bitters but overall very watery.
