2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of faint roasted nuts and caramel. Color is black with a magenta hue and no foam. Taste is bland cocoa, barley ant oats on the finish. Overall, very watered down with weak flavors. Not very good quality. I’d give this a D rating.

Sampled in a mix pack at Costco. A nice stout that is very clean and smooth on the palate. The flavor was not quite what you would want and IBUs are quite low.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From bottle to wine glass. Chocolate and roast aroma. Black with a taupe head that lingers. Taste is mostly roast with slight chocolate background. Slight silkiness from the oats. Not bad.

Chocolate, roast and bread aromas. Pours a near black with a mocha colored head and great lacing. Chocolate, espresso smooth, lager like quality makes it very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Deep brown, nearly black, large pillowy tannish head, fairly nice lacing.   Pale sweet roasted
malt nose.   Faint apple or pear skin.   Smooth on the tongue, soft, pale roasted malts, moderate sweetness, a
touch of sweetness.   Very little bitterness, to be expected.   As it warms the apple and pear skin seem to become
more apparent.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with some soft pale fruitiness, semi-sweet, mild roasted
malts, and a touch of campfire or charred wood.   A very pale example, little hops, perhaps a bit more fruity than
most.   Not bad, but very pedestrian.   Nothing wrong about it, other than perhaps its not as big as others.
Still enjoyable for what it is.

Not a bad stout. A friend grabbed a growler of this and brought it to a BBQ the other day. I didn’t expect too much from Pyramid, but was pleasantly surprised.

Bottle. Pours a deep black color with a thin, white head. Light aroma of roasted malt and a hint of oatmeal. Decent flavor. Smoked oatmeal with some malt as well. A little milky sense as well. Not bad but could have a lot more in this brew.
