1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yet another beer picked up outside Bryce Canyon from Ruby’s Inn general store (at stupidly high prices). Poured into my plastic toothbrush tumbler after a days hiking in the canyon.
Sadly I didn’t really enjoy this beer as much as some from Utah.
The smell was a weak chocolate aroma, mixed with dirty washing water (yes, I’d cleaned the toothbrush tumbler, but thanks for thinking I hadn’t).
The body was dark and the head tan coloured, low retension, no lacing.
The taste and body were both thin and boring, I could find no hop content and found the beer poor in almost all aspects, sorry.

Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Smells of coffee and chocolate. Taste is a generic porter, coffee... bitter. Good, but unoriginal.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark beer #5 of 6 from a mixed 6 pack. Aroma is coffee and steel. Appearance is cola color. Taste is black coffee with copper. Palate is very dry. Overall not my favorite but good if you’re looking for a roast coffee taste.

Bottle. Poured a near dark brown with a off white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma started with some sweet dark grains and had a bit of chocolate and toasted notes. Flavor was similar with a good amount of toast and sweet dark roasted grains with just a hint of bitterness.
