3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge light brown head from a vigorous pour. Very frothy and sudsy in appearance. Somewhat weak aroma with some light roasted malts, milk chocolate, lactose and some floral air freshener. Color is a very dark brown. Soft, sweet and malty aroma with some more lactose, light bittersweet chocolate and some dried flowers. No real alcohol presence. A very roasty and dry stout. Decent.

Bomber poured into pint glass - cola color with dense foamy head, nutty with hint of chocolate, nice malt flavor although a bit thin on texture, nevertheless an enjoyable and sessionable stout and quite servicable for my needs at a low price

Bomber. Dark black pour with a creamy tan head and decent lacing. Roasted malt aroma with flavors of coffee and smoke. The body is a bit on the thin side but the taste makes up for it.

(22 oz. bottle from Bootleggers) Pours dark brown with some lighter brown and amber highlights. Three fingers of tan head recede to a light, lasting cap. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, perhaps vanilla. Mouthfeel smooth and creamy, although a touch thin. Flavor of coffee and chocolate, actually quite strong on the coffee.

You can smell the smokiness right away, but the big story with this beer is taste. A substantial feeling beer, it’s thick maltiness is undercut with a noticeable dose of hops. As it warms up it only gets tastier. A true winter beer and one I’ve underestimated in the past.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from January ’10 courtesy of sflpunk. Almost black pour, reddish tints and a good sized, frothy, mocha colored head. Aroma holds dry roast, bitter chocolate, charred wood, sweet caramel, and some bitter hops that mix nicely with the roast component. Flavor holds more roast and chocolate with some increased coffee presence and more dry and bitter hops as well. Palate is a bit of a fault; thin and uninteresting on the tongue. Nevertheless, a tasty stout from Rock Art.
