look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

On-tap in a 12 oz glass at By the Bottle in Vancouver, WA.

appearance - dark with some transparency, some lacing

smell - candy and sugar, malts

taste - very sweet, candy and sugar notes mixed with a malty backbone

mouthfeel - a bit on the creamy side, smooth but oily

overall - i really dig what they've done with this...it doesn't really match a set style but that's just fine. it's an interesting beer and worth a try. fatigues after too much but worth a glass!

Serving type: on-tap

Who cares what style it is. If you like dark beer; porters, stouts or hefty browns, you'll love this one. Head is substantial but doesn't last long. Leaves nice lacing. Best consumed borderline room temperature for greatest aroma. Delicious fall evening campfire sipper. Good roasty, chocolatey notes with a subtle hint of fruit.

Recommended serving: Around a campfire at sunset with 3 good friends and a faithful dog.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Generous pour into my brandy snifter yields darkness and an average head for a bold ABV beer. Settles down to nothing. No lace. No bubbles. Nothing.
Lots of discussion as to style. I see it as a Scotch Ale. Suits me.
Sweetness, chocolate, bold notes.
A very slight cloyness made me drop the score a little on the mouthfeel.
A very enjoyable beer just slightly off to keep it from being rated higher.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

billed as a "stout" incorrectly by the bar i was at, it was instead a strong dark ale. hides its ABV deceptively well, very drinkable, but very forgettable. VERY sweet through a cherry/plum/raisin-y note. where its ABV is hidden by the lack of heat, perhaps it comes out in this sweetness. the sweetness, however, was not accompanied by a thick or syrupy mouthfeel - it was rather thin.

Serving type: on-tap
