2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance: near black, with a delightfully creamy, dense, dark tan head that wallowed around the top of my glass; dig the bottle shape from this brewery, but the bottle lends itself to very drippy pours. Aroma: dark roasty malts and bitter chocolate, with loamy earth and a mellow British hop character; sniffing the empty bottle the next day actually offered up more chocolate on the nose than the freshly poured beer. Taste: relatively light and muddled, with dark chocolate, hints of earth and pine, some licorice and mint. Finish: becomes a little vegetal and slightly dry at the end. Notes: Very average and felt pretty muddled. Perhaps I’ve just been having too many awesome stouts lately and this one suffered by comparison. Bottle from Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida, on the family Disney trip.

12 oz bottle. The pour is a dark black with a nice dark khaki head and a couple spotty offerings of lace. The aroma is pretty malty, with light offerings of chocolate and roast. There is a strong metallic bit on the far back end. The flavor is just sooo light. Light cocoa and roast and nothing. Thin black water. The mouth feel is really thin with a minimal carbonation and just terrible. There is a strong metallic aftertaste and a little bitter cocoa. Not good

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of cocoa, some roast, coffee, hints of slight yeast, touch of dark fruit, some slight metallic note as well. Taste had a mix of grass, veggies, some metal, green bean, touch of cocoa, roast, some dark espresso, finishing bitter. Something off here.
