3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Found my last bottle of this while moving, but now realize I never rated it...so this has quite a bit of age on it, but it held up really really well. Aroma is earthy, with mushroom, coffee and smoke. Taste is very salty, soy sauce, cooked mushrooms. Its a really interesting combination. This beer has a fantastic mouthfeel and a short tan foamy cap that just follows the beer as you drink it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an oily looking black with an average tan head. Aroma is more sweet and consists of chocolate, licorice, raisin, smoke, and roasted malts. Taste is similar to the aroma, but it is more roasted as opposed to sweet chocolate. In addition to these roasted malts, chocolate and licorice are still the other dominant flavors. I get some smokiness and coffee here also. It is sweet, but not to much. Aftertaste is a smoky chocolate with licorice undertones. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Not a whole lot of carbonation in here. Very easy to drink this one. It isn’t anything over the top in any way. Its just a solid, well made stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[4613-20120708] 1pt6floz bottle. Dusty chocolate roast malt aroma. Black body with a quick foamy brown head. Boozy roast nutty salted starch flavour, just a hint of a tang in the finish. Full body. Solid brew, interesting to try, great label. So, what does mollusk taste like, anyway? Or mutiny, for that matter? (7/3/7/4/16) 3.7
