4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
December 30th, 2011 - The final beer of my wonderful tour of Boulderís brewing industry (and itís even more wonderful output) finished on a high note, with my favorite beer from Upslope: the Foreign Stout. Black currants and a dark roasted maltiness give the aroma a thick, sweet profile, topped with a meaty, mallard top - an inviting scent on a December evening after sunset. Also of note is that the smell of their foreign stout is sweeter than their baltic porter, pushed by notes of teriyaki marinade. The flavor is mild and sweet, advertising a delicately balanced. The aftertaste is fresh and punctual, decorated with touches of vanilla and cinnamon. Not only is this one of the better beers available at Upslope that day, but it remains a highlight of my pilgrimage up to Boulder.

On tap at the brewery. Dark pour, no aroma at all, pretty bland stout. Not very much too it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce can thanks to a generous trader. Pours a darker brown to black with a khaki colored head of foam that quickly dissipates. Aroma has hints at sweet molasses and buckwheat honey on top of dark roasty notes. Taste has that sweetness up front that moves on to a dryer ashy, earthy, leathery presence. Slick across the tongue with little carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a blah blah blah. Itís a lovely black with yada yada yada. First, I like this beer. Well, I like most beer. Now the downside. Too sweet for a foreign-style stout. No head. Itís got a nice bite of bitter roast malt - coffee and chocolate - but too little too late. KnowwhatImean? Kinda one-dimensional.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can from Wilburís. Black with a lasting brown head and light lacing. Roasted malty cocoa aroma. Similar flavor with a medium body and a smooth creamy feel. Easy to drink, but pretty straight forward, nothing special.
