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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
July 25th, 2014 - Our journey to Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery ends with the darkest beer of the lot - the stout. Dark and meditative, it looks patient, having waited for all the other samplers to be tasted before itself. The smell is muddy, earthy, with heavy malt overtones, and a dab of chocolate, but the flavor is thin and mild. So is the mouthfeel, which does little to assist the flavor palate.

Hipster organic. Roast coffee, extremely drinkable. Not off chart but organic. Oh it feels so good to pound a few Bronson’s, not get to FUBAR and know you are not ingesting GMO. One if best organically around

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. Black pour with an off-white head. Aromas of licorice, roast, and coffee. A bit of molasses, some burnt sugar, and mild floral hops. Flavor is a touch on the bitter side. A lot of roast, licorice, and burnt sugar. Mild sweetness of molasses and dark fruit. Nice leafy hop character.
