3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet malty aroma, licorice root, milk chocolate, berry.
Pours black with small creamy brown head
Sweet malt with a slight raspberry like sourness, caramel, milk chocolate
Medium bodied with medium high CO2, lingering sweet sour finish.
Enjoyable FES. I prefer the fruity side to the FES opposed to roasty ones. Interesting. Makes me want to continue drinking it. Like the sour touch

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- Roasty, cocoa, subtle dark fruits.
A- Black color, black liquid, light brown head.
T- Roasty, dry, bitter, cocoa.
P- Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, dry finish.
O- Naturally, I hate the visible yeast. Beyond that, Iíve heard a lot of negativity surrounding Upslope, donít know a lot about it but this beer certainly wasnít positive. Yes, I had it on the last day before the "best by" date (which I have never really seen on a stout before) but it lacked a lot of dimension other than having a lot of dry bitter cocoa and roasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear dark brown with a slight, medium brown head. Aroma of sweet malts and hay. A slightly bitter/sour flavor on the back of the tongue. Much less sweet than I would have expected based on the aroma. Fairly smooth in the mouth with very small bubbles. This beer has a relatively distinct flavor that I canít put my finger on, but it is pretty drinkable and less heavy than many stouts.
