3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle pours black in color with a small off-white head and little lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is roasted malty bitterness with some chocolate malty sweetness and a mild hoppy bitterness. Light to medium body and light carbonation. A little thin in body for a stout and detracts from the score. Otherwise, this is not a bad stout and was refreshing and easy to drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured a dark brown with a good sized tan head. Nose of roasted malts and chocolate. Medium body and a carbonated mouthfeel. Flavor is dominated by the chocolate but there is some burnt malts and a touch of fruit. Dry and slightly biter finish. Quite good and I enjoyed every drop.

22 oz. bottle from Hayduke. We shared it via facebook chat. This poured a very dark brown with a tan head that did not last long. The nose was like a milk stout but my bottle was quite cold. There was some chocolate. The flavor was some nice chocolate and it was kind of like what a soda jerk would pour. Some nuts were tasted and it was a bit syrupy. There was a bit of zing on the tip of my tongue.

On tap at Sirens in Port Townsend. Starts out pretty good. Malty aroma. Velvety body. It’s a little think and watery, but decent. But the flavor goes downhill as it goes on.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served on tap at the brewery. The appearance is a deep flat brown black. The nose is medium with roasted grains, brown rice, and hints of coffee. The flavors are also medium in intensity. A nice malty, brown rice flavor, some bakers chocolate. Medium bodied mouth. A well done everyday stout. Looking at other reviews this is much better on tap.
