3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A good basic stout. Pours a thick black with a brown head. Smell is not great, coffee flavors, but also cough medicine. Taste is a little boring, but creamy and refreshing. Had on tap at the brewery.

Bottle from Whole Foods in Monterey. Pours an oily brown color with a ruby tint around the edges and a fleeting oatmeal colored head. Smells of dried fruit and malt. Tastes of toasted malt, cocoa, coffee, cream, and dried cherries. Possibly the best "organic" beer I have yet to try.

Pours a deep black color with no head at all. Sweet aroma with some hops and malt. A hint of vanilla. A watered down stout. Some vanilla, with a hint of malt and chocolate. A weak stout in my opinion.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Drank out of the bottle. Aroma: Rich coffee, hibiscus, jellied currants and nuts. Taste: Well this one totally caught me off guard. I sat down with intention to enjoy a fine beer but instead was treated to a peanut butter sandwich. That is exactly what it tasted like. A mix of sweetened crushed peanuts and fresh bready notes. The best part: I love peanut butter. I couldn’t hate this one no matter how hard I tried. Was it unique? Yes. Was it suitable for a stout? Perhaps not. Was it bad? Not entirely. It even had a sticky and thick mouth feel, true to peanut butter nature!

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Deep dark brown with a large head from an aggressive pour that left pretty nice lacing. Strong chocolate fudge aromas up front, supported by licorice, coffee, and brown sugar with a hint of leather and dirt. Chocolate sweetness and a coffee bitterness were clearest on the tongue, but an almost sour dark fuitiness detracted from the experience. Creamy mouthfeel, more carbonation than expected, and a syrupy sweet aftertaste. I probably won’t return to this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very little pop to the top when taking the cap off. Despite that it poured a nice brown frothy head about 2mm tall. Dark jet brown color. No light shines through. Nice aroma, thick with chocolate fudge, brown sugar and small bit of coffee. slightly thicker than normal mouthfeel. Coffee and roasted malts more prevalent in flavor. Coffees linger on the palate in the aftertaste. This is a very nice stout! And it’s organic to boot. Will definitely be keeping the beer on my radar!!
