3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2004 Sampler, from 2001 notes. Pretty decent. I gave it points for also smelling like a creamy oatmeal stout, on top of a Guinness-y head. Nice and malty, meaning little hop activity going on.
Tap at Beaver Street Brewery, Flagstaff. Aromas and flavours: Coffee, dryness, chocolate and roasted malts. BiiruBierBeer (1059) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 23, 2016
Stout and hops smell and taste. Medium to full body, medium carbonation, and heavy foam. Ibrew2or3 (8912) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 22, 2016
Poured up on tap at the brewpub where it exhibits a deep dark body that supports a thin dark tan head. The aroma offers up chocolate malt balls, dark roasted malts, chocolate malts and a thin layer of burnt malts. The taste delivers chocolate malts, some dark roasted maltiness and then thin malt sweetened shards of bunt malts. It picks up a bit of sweet black licorice to sort of a cola sensation from time to time. The chocolate and dark roastiness run from front to back. Pretty nice. slowrunner77 (13203) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUL 22, 2015

@ beaver street brewery in a glass, nice black coloured stout with foamy white and lacing head. Smell: roasted malts, some coffee, drops. Taste: nice balance between roasted malts and the bitterness. Very nice stout! But I don’t understand the naming of ’sweet stout’ because it isn’t sweet at all. Congrats!
