Dark brown pour. Near black. Crisp tan head that lingers. Aromas of coffee mostly. Light chocolate. Taste is light like a coffee infused Guinness. Light body and medium carb.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: AUG 16, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a black color with an enormous creamy tan head that lingered forever and left good lacing. The aroma was dry, bitter and woody with a bit of vanilla and cream. The flavor was dry, woody and somewhat biter with smoke, roasty malts and a touch of cream. Long wood and smoke finish. Medium body and very creamy. Meh.

Had 13 beer flight on a beautiful custom wood flight. Beers overall were solid and the service was great. Nothing extraordinary overall with flight, but most palatable and easy to drink. A few unique beers with honey and lavender. Individual beers as follows:
Worth your weight in gold: Lager taste, slight malty feel, plenty of flavor for a yellow clear beer. Nice lager.
Slippery rock Dew: Thick in the mouth, honey flavor readily present, fresh and refreshing
Station 33:Crisp, caramel malts, simple but enjoyable
Mcleods Eva: Smooth, sweet at the end. Light and watery for a malty beer. Less overwhelming, good or bad, then many in the same style
Squirel Nut Brown: Good rendition for the style
Amber waves of grain: Can really taste the caramel malts. Drinkable.
Simcoe Pale Ale: Smells like a christmas treee. Would be nice with a big dinner to cleanse the pallate between bites.
Paleo IPA: average IPA
Frias Porter: Good flavor bute falls a little short. Root beer flavor at the end
Stonehouse stout: On nitro. Guiness feel in the mouth but a bit more boring.
Fruit bowl: neat idea, apricot flavor this go around, great summer beer
Lavender Abbey: Strong aroma and flavor. Lavender hits you in the face. Polarizing experience.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a dark brown with a thick nitro tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, bitter chocolate. Flavor of smoked meat, roasted malt, a touch of charred malt, hint of chocolate. Nice and smoky, with a solid palate. Perhaps a bit strong on the nitro but otherwise it’s great!

Dark and milky with a white head. The roasted malts with a bit of oat comes to the nose and then coats the tongue. Super smooth, one of their best beers.
