Black color, brown thin head. Light malt, roasted, cardboard. Weak in the front, getting more interesting later with a strong roasted malt, nutty, but nothing else. Too flat.

Bottle with Nick. Dark brown pour, tan head. Roasty malt nose, rich mocha. Light sweet flavor, great roasted malts, chocolate, dry coffee, light burnt wood. Medium bodied, chewy, with average carbonation. Roasty finish, mild brown sugar, tobacco and scorched malts. Earthy bitterness in the throat Extremely solid. Can’t really fault this.

Keg at Rogue, PDX, 12/11/14. Last beer in OR on this trip!
Dark mahogany brown with a decent light tan covering that retains well.
Nose is roast malt, toffee, light cocoa, grain, vanilla.
Taste comprises chocolate, light roast, light metallic notes.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light roast in a semi drying close with hoppy backnotes.
Ok stout but really struggling to see why this beer carries a score of 3.86 !!!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours very dark brown, almost black, with a nice, dense tan head. Licorice, burnt, some smoke-sourness, chocolate, coffee and mocha in the aroma. Burnt, hops, coffee, mocha and chocolate in the flavor. Full body and a long, roasted finish with hops, chocolate and mocha. I find it maybe a bit too hoppy, I like my stout more on the chocolate- and coffee-side, but a very good beer. (070413)
