This is a great beer. Often undershadowed by Gritty McDuff’s, this beer may take Maine’s best Stout. Gritty’s is an institution in Freeport

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
So not happy at all. They must have change the recipe. The menu said ABV is 4.7. There was a off white head the beer is black. Not much carbonation. Taste roasted malt no chocolate at all and the beer is very thin. Do yourself a favor pass on this one. Had a sebago brewing co. on Payne in Portland, Maine.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a really nice dark roasted stout. On draft, it has a really nice head, great aroma, and a very dark, almost black color. The taste is a very smooth roast flavor with a nice hop finish that leaves a dryness to the palate. One of their best.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Opaque brown/black with a solid two-finger head, and a curtain of lace. Taste is mild toasted caramel malt with a hint of coffee and cream. Finish reveals a hint of hop bittering. Taste is a little watery, in a good way, similar to Murphy’s Stout. Easy to drink and satisfying. Recommended.
