3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can thanks to my Winter Secret Santa. Black pour with a 1 finger head that fades to a nice thick film. Great appearance. Aroma is big, roasty, and a little sweet. Tastes like dark roast coffee, light campfire smoke, light chocolate, and salt. It does kinda taste like pretzels mixed with roasted coffee. Full body. Creamy mouthfeel. Really enjoyed this one.

Refrigerated 16 oz. aluminum can, an extra from Blutt59, poured into a glass. Coal black with big fluffly beige head. Aroma is roasty, medium body, medium carbonation, and little big-bubble lacing. Taste is roasty, some coffee, some herbal hops, salty, and dry finish. Complex, but too salty for me.

Pours dark brown with a small brown fizzy head. Smells of chocolate, hints of roast and toast, subtle notes of coffee. Taste is bready and chocolate, some coffee bitterness. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Martin House Pretzel Stout finishes with bitterness and a subtle saltiness.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Creamy mouthfeel. Initial taste is bready, very malty, toasty. After taste is where all the pretzel comes in. The sweet malt fades into a salty taste. Medium length, bitter, coffee finish. Medium bitterness. Overall a full flavored beer with a legit pretzel taste.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
the aroma is sweet chocolate, coffee, slight pretzel. the taste is similar with the chocolate malt and coffee. i don’t pick up the pretzel at first but the saltiness is faint in the aftertaste. very unique beer and well worth a try.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours black like oil with khaki colored head. Chocolate, roasted malt, bread (pretzel-like), and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. The saltiness of the pretzels come through nicely on the finish and give this stout an interesting character.
