3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hopworks Urban Brewery--HUB--Survival "7-Grain" Stout--Malt Beverage With Coffee Added--Sustainable Organic Beer--2010 22 oz. Bottle. 5.30% ABV. 35 IBU’s. (3.75 / 5.0) Foamy lacy light tan head. Thin coffee black color. Light roasted coffee cocoa hop hint delicate aroma. Slightly creamy sweet silky toasted dark biscuit grain bread roasted light coffee fruit mild Stout body. Smooth refreshing mild hop dry Session Stout end. If blindfolded I do not think I would think this was a Stout. Very mild dark malt character. Seems as if color comes from coffee, not malt. Sampled 8/14/2010. 2 @ $5.99 Each.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at the brewpub. Black with a creamy tan head. Smoth roasted grain and coffee in the aroma, as well and some burnt fruit and caramel. The flavor has a nice grainy complexity that goes from nutty to earthy to sweet, all wrapped up in a delicious espresso flavor. Sweet, but with a nice roasty bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied and silky. Tons of flavor for a regular stout, and all of it works. It was much nicer to see this than a big imperial stout. Very nice beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Dark mahogany, average light brown head. Roasty coffee aroma, subtle fruity accents. Dark roasted coffee drives the flavour, notes of aniseed, breadcrusts, dark fruits. Medium bodied, medium bitterness. Tasty, with an interesting concept behind the recipe.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small head. Aroma of espresso, licorice, roasted malt and grass. Flavour is much the same, with a burnt finish - there is something off about it. Not my thing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pitch black with an enormous frothy pale brown head with great retention. Roasty but oddly fresh head - like spinach or other dark greens and a curious spiciness. Milky chocolate and light citrus upfront, espresso very present. Toasty oats, and I do think I can taste quinoa in there, just a light nuttiness. Creamy moderately thick body with appropriate carbonation. This is a real treat - complex and unique but very quaffable. like an oatmeal cookie.
