Chudwick (2773) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - APR 10, 2012
12oz bottle - pours clack with lots of beige head and nice lacing. Nose is roasted malts, chocolate and Cascade hops. Flavor adds caramel malts. Taste is all around bitter a wee bit sweet to the lips. Pretty tasty for hoppier than I would expect from a stout, but then again this is from California.

wroclovefood (19) - - JUN 9, 2016
Obfita, sztywna i brązowawa piana cudnie zdobi szklankę, a wydobywające się z niej aromaty rzucają na kolana. Delikatnie czekoladowy, palony aromat stanowi doskonały wstęp do pierwszego łyka, który potwierdza pierwsze odczucia. Zbalansowane piwo, idealnie zakończone przez dość wysoką goryczkę, w smaku palone, ale i lekko kawowe, o niemalże kremowej teksturze.
