3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Their summer offering, this is a nicely balance cream stout, with a smooth body, nice balanced finish, and fairly mild roasty flavors. Very drinkable.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap @ Rock Bottom Portland. Mentioned just as stout, but considering the date, probably is the cream stout. Quite smooth, some hops, some coffee and chocolat. Again, like the porter, quite thin.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not labeled as any specific stout. But, I immediately thought this is a cream stout from the first sip. very smooth, with notes of hops. Less than the porter for hops and malt.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Portland location. Dark brown, almost black with ruby edges and a light tan head. Aroma of caramel, roastiness and some mocha. Flavor of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt and some hops. Medium bodied, smooth texture and subtle carbonation. Could use more body though.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark brown, some burgundy light at the edges. Light creamy nose, a very creamy but thin palate. Flavors are distanct... light cream is really all I get out of this. Maybe some light nuts. Nothing to go nuts about, though.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a black color with a tan head that left some decent lacing. Aroma was rich with some chocolate malt and a faint roastiness. Taste starts mildly sweet and ends with a decent bitterness and a chocolate aftertaste. This brew had a very thin mouthfeel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown, almost black, tan creamy head, good lacing. The aroma is toasty with some black patent & light hops. The flavor is chary & lightly smoky, balanced faint hops. Very typical stout, Guinness clone at best. eh

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very decent and well balanced cream stout. A little lacking in flavor, but all around a good pic. Creamy, but no too creamy like a Murphy’s.
