3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle shared by shigadeyo. Pours dark brown with a medium beige head. The aroma has weak roasted malts and a strong hop presence. The flavor shows slightly more roast than in the nose, but is still very hoppy with a hint of dark fruits. Hoppy stouts are not my thing. Lighter side of medium bodied.
Rating #25 for this beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared by shigadeyo.
Poured dark brown color with a large frothy brown head that was mostly lasted with heavy lacing. Moderate complex roasted malt and earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and flat carbonation. Medium roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium hoppy bitter finish of moderate duration.
Drinkable, but out of balance.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
7/30/2009: Silver City Sasquatch Stout... Aroma: Mineral-like, somewhat weak roasted malt/roasted barley. Appearance: Nearly black color with purple tint and opaque; beige head. Flavor: Weak cola-ish, minerally, watery roasted barley, char; dry chocolate/unsweetened cocoa finish. Palate: Medium-light body, lots of carbonation, not smooth. Overall: Not big or complex, moderately flavorful; reminds me of some of the BrewDog beers.
22 fl. oz. bottle (Alc. 6.8% by Vol) from via trade. Thanks! Rating #23 for this beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Brandon for hooking me up with this bomber! Poured clear, deep brown with a medium cap of creamy, well-retained tan head. The aroma picked up an array of nicely-roasted black malts with dark chocolate, licorice, and black patent represented.. maybe a splash of earthy and herbal hoppage, but it was malty overall. The flavor lost a little specific character from the malts (mostly black patent with lesser coffee and dark chocolate), but the hops played a greater role (earth, pine, and citrus were well-blended in here).. finished with great balance between the roasty malts and hop bouquet. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated on the palate.. balance was great, and this was easy as could be to drink. I’d love to have a keg of this handy at the house.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours nearly black with a tan head. Hop-and-blackberry drive the aroma along with some of the expected roasty tones; we see the same thing in the flavor only more so. Lots of blackberry and dark cherry, deep-roasted coffee, a decisive hop close with the Amarillo coming in even through the midrange to meld spicy citrus with the berries and keep both dancing lightly beneath the chocolate and coffee. Thisis a big high-octane stout, and it’s a very nice one in my book. Well worth a revisit.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark with light beige head. Roasted aroma immediately comes out as I pour. Flavor is roasted malts I wish I could taste the cents and the amarillo more. This is a few months old and the hops might’ve faded by now. Still a solid beer that deserves to be one of the better stouts out there.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a very dark brown color with a large brown head. Fairly hoppy full of piny hops and dry cocoa. The flavor was fairly hoppy as well but this time more citrusy and a big milk chcocolate base. Hops come back lightly at the finish followed by a moderate bitterness. Light-medium body and some warmth.

Thanks to JoeMcPhee for sharing - dark brown beer, with a nice ring of lace - smells hoppy/leafy, with a little coffee and cocoa underneath - quite hoppy, with some notes of tobacco behind it - a little bit of berry fruitiness in the background, and some light sweet cream flavor - a lot of chocolate starts to come through as it warms, as does some warming alcohol - a pretty nice stout.
