3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark brown with hints of light shining through. Has an off white 1 finger head. Aroma is that of burnt caramel, dark chocolate and roasted malts. This beer first hits the palate with bitter chocolate and vanilla, followed by coffee and finishing with some mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is on the lighter side with carbonation on heavier side.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with bubbly tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Flavor is burnt malt, bitter dark chocolate. Fizzy with all the bubbles. Overall I liked the beer, but it’s not very Squatchy. These beer names are just random, right? There’s no rhyme or reason for them. They are almost like band names. One day when a beer comes along named Satan’s Death Basket or some other random string of words, then we’ll know we are at critical mass.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Jungle Jim’s / Eastgate OH --- Opaque dark brown, frothy tan head, sprays of lace. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. Taste is assertive burnt roasted malt that adds chocolate and coffee as it moves to medium, but aggressive carbonation on the swallow, followed by light bittering in a long finish. Heavy on the bitter side, right from the beginning, but, not bitter from hops. A decent brew that has a light body, and a full, powerful taste.

Middle of the road stout. Pours dark with foamy tan head. Overly carbonated for my liking, gave a mouth feel of a bud light. The taste is pretty good, but nothing special. Again pretty middle of the road in my opinion. Would probably pass more as a porter than a true stout.

Bitter and slightly tart. Not sure if this is a bad bottle or if this is what it is supposed to taste like.

12oz bought somewhere along the road in WI, 09/2013. Pours exquisitely rich coffee with rich espresso crema. Tangy aroma of liquorice and filter coffee, continued in taste, only getting more riche and chocolate-full as it warms, with a thinner liquid tobacco edge. Very well balanced, up until the dry roast finish.
