3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Received in trade from brentk56, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours a solid black color with a fluffy khaki head that slowly recedes to lots of chunky lace. Smells heavy on the roasted malts, lots of coffee, caramel, and chocolate mixed with some smoke and a hint of citrus and pine. Taste is much the same. Dark roasted malts leaning heavy on the coffee end. Pine hops come through midway and finishes with a dry long lingering roasted coffee bitterness. Medium body and light carbonation. Nice Stout! I really enjoyed this one, but it does finish a little dry for my liking. I wouldn’t hesitate to imbibe this one if it were more accessible.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Black pour with nary a head. There was a slight head when I poured it, but it faded so fast I forgot it was there. Minimal lacing, if any at all. Coppery smell, with some malt and coffee. Watery tasting malt concoction. Not bad tasting, just a little bit on the bland side. Bitter mouthfeel mixed with a muted sweetness. Or, more accurate, watered down sweetness. Not a bad beer at all, just seems like they made a very good beer, then diluted it down to make a good beer.
