3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

This was tasted first before buying a pint. The stout was the best all the beers tasted. Big creamy head and an ink black color. Deep roasted malt taste with hint of burnt cinamimon. In the bar the alcohol was listed at 4.6%. The Cinco de Mayo party was clebrated with three of their beers and a great salsa.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A wash of nitro brown foam settles into a black body with a lingering tan cover. The aroma is dulled nitro roast, some chocolate. The taste is nice, a light bodied nitro stout that made for a perfect hangover helper.
