2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Keg at the Smokehouse, Charleston, 18/02/15.
Light black with a moderate tan swirl.
Nose is light roast, charr, toffee.
Taste is rough, raw and unrefined, papery, washed out cocoa.
Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close.
Poor stuff indeed, every homebrew stout/porter Iíve tried has been way better than this garbage.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2012
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 12/7/12
Aroma:†This one has a light roasty nose, fairly malty, and a bit one dimensional
Appearance: This one has a†brown colored pour with a small head and minimal lace
Flavor:†it has a dry roasted coffee flavor mostly, and with some other malts too
Palate:†This one has a medium body, though it feels a touch watery, and has a soft carbonation
This beer is fine enough, I guess. Thereís nothing super off about it or anything, but it just didnít do much for me. Eh...
