3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz shorty bottle. Sort of a gusher, huge beige head takes a few minutes to settle. Smooth, clean, drinkable, true to style. Medium bodied, with some sweet cocoa chocolate tones. Mild, roasty bitterness. Fresh and all around enjoyable, a perfect session Stout. Well executed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Black and thick with a thick, almost caramel colored head. Aroma and taste are roasty and sweet. Not a bad tasting stout, but much harsher and more heavily carbonated than I prefer from the style.

Bottle from Liquor Max in Loveland, CO. Pours black with a foamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate and tar. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is chocolate, burned malt and I think more than a hint of tar. Finishes slightly harsh. Which isn’t a bad thing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour is a complete black with a small tan head. Aroma is a good dose of roasted malt with a little coffee in the backround. Flavor is likewise. Starts out with a decent roasted malt then leaves a little coffee and burnt grain on the tounge. A decent little stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is one of Twisted Pine’s more tolerable of their standard beers. Silky black color, medium brown, very frothy head. Aroma of roasted malt. Flavor is roasted with a bitter, mouth-watery finish. Thick, creamy body and cozy mouth feel. Lacing is really wet, slides down the glass, leaving occasional patches of light brown froth. Overall, a good, standard thick-style stout.
