TAR (2674) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - NOV 9, 2005
Draft: Ruby tinted ebony. Dense clay colored foam slowly subsides. Pronounced roasted barley aromas. Light on vanilla and char. Soft carbonation, but rather watery as a result of the nitrogen. Waxed plums coat the palate before a forceful roast induced dryness and cottony malt grit emerge. Gently inky in the center along with some black currant softness. Roasty malt flavors flirt with hints of coffee, before burnt malt hulls take over and stiffen the body. Finishes dryly roasty and beautifully chalky with burnt malt hulls and lightly oxidized roast. Straightforward, but well executed. Now if they’d only beef up the malt to compensate for the lack of body.

tap. I’m not the world’s most enthusiastic stout drinker, but this was very easy to drink. Very smooth. The head was that nice perfect stout frothiness.

Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 21, 2005
Black body with tan creamy head and lacing left on the glass. Aroma was of cold coffee. Flavor was thin, not to rich like some other stouts. Had left a slightly roasted aftertaste. Not bad

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Black with a thick heavy head. Rich, roasty aroma with a light body that reminds me more of a porter. Roasty chocolate and coffee flavor with a smooth creamy finish.

FlacoAlto (4152) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 17, 2005
This beer is a dark brown, mostly black color, it shows clear with ruby highlights when held up to the light. The head is a creamy brown color. The aroma is rich with notes of chocolate and lightly roasted coffee. The taste is smooth and creamy with a solid chocolate highlight to it. There is a bit of roasted malt astringency in the finish. Again this is a very quaffable brew by this brewery. There is some soft fruitiness here that reminds me most of raisins. This has been another stylistic masterpiece.
