12 ounce bottle from a sampler box from Shop N Save. Red hues in an almost black beer. A small tan head is fizzy and dies quickly. I smell tobacco, light cocoa, and a bit of smoke. The flavor offers light roasted notes, smoke, chocolate, and brewers grain. Mid glass some sharp hops are noticed and they are citrus and mildly bitter. After that some lactic effects. For a stout this is quite thin but is not a bad beer.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Bottled. Poured medium-deep chocolatey brown with a short toasted tan head. The aroma picked up toasted black and lesser chocolate malts with light accents of vanilla and detergent.. didn’t do much for me. The flavor found lightly-roasted black malts, chocolate, and a touch of licorice, again accented by detergent and a touch of vanilla.. had a few too many residual sugars on the finish. Light-bodied and fairly dry on the palate.. decent feel and flow.. drinkable.

Poured black! kind of tastes like a watered down guiness. Decent flavor for the most part.

Black pour with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt, maybe black patent. Little sweet aroma. Taste is roasted malt, a little dry. Ok flavor.

First rate! Kind of shows you the general lack of enthusiasm for Grays beer, as this has been out for a few months. Sweet and sugary, dark beers like this are a little forgiving. I don’t really like designating it as a Dry Stout, as it calls itself a Black Ale...and is such..but maybe the brewer added it? Simple, straightforward Black Ale. Not really that good, but certainly not bad.
