3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a deep mahogany with a short cap of caramel head. Nose picked up baker’s chocolate, smoky malts, and a hint of dark fruits... with a moderate roast to it. Flavor changed directions by focusing on Pac NW hoppage... with dry roasted chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit playing second, third, and fourth fiddles. Roasty coffee and pine bitterness meet alcohol astringency at the dry finish... decent, but felt slightly out of balance. A bit thin mid-palate, but filled out for the finish. Not a bad brew, yet there are better examples of the style to seek out.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured pitch black with half an inch mocha head. This aroma is light and uninspired with mild sweetness and burnt to roasty malts followed by burnt malts. The taste is more interesting with malty sweetness quickly followed up by burnt malts. Then I get a light astringency and mild caramel candy sweetness that rides into the finish with hints of coffee. The taste is very nice.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (500ml). Shared with blankboy and tupalev, my bottle . Opaque black pour, average tan head. Burn aroma, cocoa, dry hops, hint of peat and salt. Taste (blankboy’s WRONG, ignore his rating!) is smooth, roast malt, molasses, prune and caramel - silky and simple. Light body, mild burnt aftertaste - pretty solid, IMHO.

Had at the brewpub after a tour of the place. Not a bad beer - typical profile and tasty enough.

Bottle (500ml) shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Pours a very dark ruby-brown with an average size diminishing light brown head. Aroma of slightly burnt caramel, chocolate, a hint of smoke and some herbal hops. Slightly watery flavour of lightly roasted malt, dark fruit and chocolate. Medium bodied. A pretty good Dry Stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Deep brown with an initial fizzy tan head which reduced to a fine ring and good lace. The aroma has notes of burnt and toasted malts, coffee, mocha, grassy and herbal hops, and prune. The taste starts bittersweet with a heavy dose of coffee like bitterness upon the finish. A bit lactic and fruity twang makes it interesting. A solid dry stout.
