4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Unusual stout. Slightly bitter. Spicy notes. Quite thin for a stout. Coffee undertone with a hint of chocolate, which lingers. If I had to guess, I would call this a porter more than a stout. If it were a character in a play, a puritanical New Englander. A very good porter, as a stout, not bad -- unusual but complex.

750ml bottle in a Night Shift glass. Pours near black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, the chicory coffee notes, dark chocolate, some light dough, and a little spiciness. Flavor the same with a nice blend of the chicory, coffee, and the stout. Average texture. A pretty good beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 ml bottle purchased at the Brewery. Bottle on 2-14-14 at 5.9%. Slowly diminishing tan head on a pitch black liquid. Aroma is quite nice, chicory root, ginger and chocolate bars. Light smoke.
Flavor starts with smooth chocolate, followed by light charcoal and then transitions into ginger and chicory that gives it a brightness that lightens up the malt flavor. Also has a light earthy note as well. The body is really much more thin then people may want in a stout. I think thicken up the body would turn this from good, to exceptional. The brewer’s creativity does show a great deal in this stout and overall is tasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 5-6 weeks ago. Deep brown with almost no head or lace. Thin but nice aroma of soy, chili, cocoa, lactic sourness. Flavor is earth, soy, lactic tart, chicory coming through strongly. Mouth feel is thin and somewhat "belgian" with a oily body that carries the sour and spiciness for a good bit. This is a comforting stout with a few added dimensions. I like it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Poured dark brown with a medium-sized tan head. Classic dry stout with some additional elements: quite herby, lots of chocolate, light spiciness. Good, but the sours and saisons are their real strength.
