3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours black. Not a powerful aroma, bread and caramel. Good flavor, roasty, smokey flavors and a little caramel sweetness. Not an overpowering stout, but enjoyable.

Alla spina al brewpub. Forse la birra che ho meno apprezzato di Russian River, forse perchè il livello delle altre è eccelso ma questa mi è sembrata mancare di carattere. Una stout tutto sommato normale.
