3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Slutfest 4 - Sexytime! Clear light brown with ring of offwhite head. Donít really get the pale ale much, but it seems more porter than stout. Not sure what is going on here. Itís fairly drinkable though.

Pours a dark, cola-like color. No head and light carbonation. Little aroma, some hint of coffee. Initial taste comes off with a little not of hops but ends more malty. Very average beer that left no lasting impressing.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark ruby almost black. Not much head or aroma. First hit is of bitter hops that mellows to some malt and wood. Can't taste the peat though. The commercial description of a cross between a pale and stout is accurate. So either a thin hoppy stout or dark pale. Still, not a bad easy drinking beer.
