3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at pub, chocolate aroma with American citrus/pine note. Chocolate and touch of dark fruit with piney (Columbus?) hop flavor, but very low, to no roast in flavor. Oatmeal duly noted in mouthfeel, what kmweaver dubs ’nougat’.
This was my third place choice (of four) in blind tasting for best stout in Sonoma County.
