2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Man, compared to their High Desert Imperial Stout, this is just plain dead. Pours a dark brown/black with a light brown head. Aroma is roasty. Taste starts off with roasted malt/coffe and then goes nowhere. It seemingly just turns into water. Has no sweetness at all. Mouthfeel is very thin and watery. Not recommended.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
A decent stout. Served in a cold glass which hid a lot of flavors and didnít help the beer . A nice thick oatmeal with a decent finish. One of my favorites from Sweetwater so far.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark brown with a tan head. Roasted malt aroma with just a little chocolate. This stout was mostly focused on roasted malt flavor and delivered a pleasing dry malt finish. This was an excellent end to a nice dinner, however I would categorize this beer as a little tame.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tan head black body. Oaty malty aroma. Flavor is middle of the road stout. Nothing really special. Body is rather watery. Compared to their Imperial Stout this is very run of the mill.
