3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Oregon brewpub.
Pours blacker than the gunk on a hippie’s teeth with an aroma of sweet, smoky chocolate coffee. Flavor is light, bitter coffee witha smoky chocolate finish. Par-for-the-course mouthfeel. A little too light in the taste department; needs more depth.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Steelhead BC, Eugene, OR. small tan head that was mostly lasting, next to no lacing, opaque, no carbonation observed, and an almost black hue. Nose was roasty, coffee and a hint of chocolate. Flavor was roasty, coffee and dry. Smooth, dry mouthfeel. Medium body. Too one dimensional and needs more flavor. Lacks character. Just so-so for the style.

Eugene Steelhead. Very nice roasty stout, coffee finish. Thin and creamy, like a true irish dry stout. Crisp and balanced, not a heavy stout by any means, but instead worked with a soft roasty cocoa and coffee flavor.
