4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle had while visiting family in Boulder, Co. Pours black with about a finger of mocha head. Aroma is typical stout, but with a good deal more cocoa aroma. Taste is roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, some licorice, and a nice hop punch at the end. Light and silky mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good sweet stout, but not one that stands out. Seems to be a local favorite for a good reason.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
July 31st, 2011 - Before I had a chance to visit the Twisted Pine Brewery, I went through Twisted Pine’s variety box, hoping to find a gem in a brewery that combined a beautiful Colorado aesthetic with the art of beer. I also hoped there’d be something special about Twisted Pine, who has, as it were, grown and clambered through the forest of a very competitive beer scene to make a name for itself. I begin this trek with their Cream Style Stout, a stout with a generous addition of roasted barley, and a medal behind it too. The pour is smooth and oily, like the Eunuch from A Song of Ice and Fire, but the head quickly deflates, revealing the beer, and unveiling the aroma. It’s savory, with roasted smells (the barley, yes?), not too sweet and absent the caramel touch I find in a lot of main line stouts. The barley aroma feel a bit tortured, but from this pain comes gustatory pleasure, where soy sauce and hints of raisin enter the bouquet. Despite the style, the body is flat, and smoother than I’m used to, but compensates for this with a savory, salty and delicious flavor. Fig is wedged in between tectonic plates of meandering flavors - burnt caramel, roasted barley, and more soy sauce. There’s a lot of smokiness too, but it’s surprisingly light and effete. This is good drinking, and a good start to my Twisted Pine sampler.
