3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer has a creamy brown head that sits atop a dark, almost black beer. The aroma has notes of roasted coffee and chocolate. This has a smooth creamy taste, with a sharp burnt malt bitterness in the finish. The dark malt notes also contribute a certain acidity to this beer. This is pretty dry and light bodied, but pretty good too.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer poured a dark brown, almost black color with a nice tan head atop the beer. Aroma is roasted and nutty. Flavor is dominated by one flavor and one flavor only...tobacco. It's not in a bad way but tobacco is the most prevelant flavor in this stout. Nice body with the light carbonation very fitting for the style. Overall the best offering frin Rio Salado
