3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled draught at Bill’s Tavern, Cannon Beach
Opaque brown, no head. Nose of nice dark roasted malts, meaty wakame & creamy body. The hops aren’t pronounced, just playing along. The flavor is smoky, good stout, well worth the visit (Enter: The exception!).
