3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at brewpub. Pours dark brown with a decent head. This is a passable stout and makes for a good session beer due to the low abv though nothing outstanding here.

Sampled at NH Brewfest, 10/03/09, Pours black with a creamy beige head. Aroma is chocolate and roasted malt. Palate is thin and dry, not my personal favorite, but true to the style. Flavor is roasted malt with chocolate with a little bit of smoke and wood.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brown color where no light shines through. Very nice head and lace left on the glass.
Strong coffee ground aroma--no sweetness.
The body is thin. After a mild start, a heavily roasted malt flavor shows up in the swallow--lots of black patent malt. A very dry stout and bitter from the burnt elements.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ok guys and gals, we all know itís a dry stout. Itís black, smooth, dry, and sometimes hard to get at the Ale House (inappropriate joke goes here). This stout can compete with any other Irish style stout in America, err, Worldwide! It is powered by CO2, not N2, however. Once I got lucky and stumbled across an experimental N2 stout at the Ale House. Itís a good monday, tuesday, or wednesday beer, when the work week still has its demands on us (4% ABV). Overall, itís a great stout, but what is with the name, Naked? I am phoning the HR department over this one right now.
