3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Black beer under a huge, thick cream-tan head. Dry-roasted, woody nose, dry cocoa powder, wood shavings; dried green herbs, chocolate truffles; Rather subdued, mildly sweet and faintly roasted flavour. Again some dry cocoa powder, but again slighlty sweetened. Faint wood. MF betrays the lively carbonation. Dry, but far from bone-dry. Medium bodied. Good, but certainly not spectacular stout. Irish stouts usually are more burnt, and have a more pronounced acidity. Easily drinkable, but not one to remember forever.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: velvety near black pour with a short tan head and average lace. Aroma: roasty, with licorice, chocolate, wet granite, hint of herb, vanilla, and cream. Taste: dark chocolate, molasses, soy sauce, vanilla pudding, with a bit of talc. Finish: dry and smooth, with lingering roasty notes. Notes: For a 5% stout, this was a nice mix of drinkable and rich. Not bad at all.

On draft at Rattle’n’Hum. A nice light stout. Flavors of coffee, caramel, a little sea salt and sulfur. There is even some noticeable barley malt (what a shocker, eh?).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bomber from Woodmans in Waukesha. Pours an opaque black with a thin brownish head leaving almost no lace. Aroma has chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is of light chocolate, some caramel and faint fruit. Light to medium bodied. Lowly carbonated and very dry. Thins out as it warms. Finishes bittersweet and quickly. Shrug? Old bottle? It was bone dry and thin without a significant flavor palate. Inoffensive but disappointing.
