4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a stout that pals a full punch of flavor. Draft pour pint at the brewery. I’ve seen this beer around for years but for some reason I passed on it time and time again. Now I’m wondering why. Full chocolatey roasted flavor with a lingering cocoa finish. Thick mouthfeel. I’d believe it if it was strongerthan 7% but it is in no way boozy. Just has a big beer feel to it. Awesome trip to Pike. Awesome beer here.

Poured in tulip glass from a bomber. Smoky coffee aroma, black and opaque with nice tan head. Flavor of coffee, roasted malt and cocoa, with a pleasantly bitter finish. Very respectable stout worth a try.

Bomber from Grocery Outlet. Pours thick and black with a small brownish head on it. Roasted nose with coffee and a bit of licorice. Smell pretty rich, like an impy. Dry up front with a good deal of roasted malts. Coffee and more roast follow. Very stout. No sweetness, just lots of roasty and coffee. Light hops in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample, black body, decent head, good lace. Aroma tasted barley and dark fruit. Taste roasted malt, dark fruit, a little ashy? Starts slightly sweet, finishes bitter. Palate a little light, carbonation ok, just slightly sharp for style.
