3.85/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a pint glass into a nonic pint.

A - Black with ruby brown edges, and pours with a one-finger light tan head of creamy looking bubbles, which lasted a while before fading. A decent amount of patchy lacing.

S – A clean and subdued aroma of roasted grain and west coast hops.

T – Nice toasted barley flavor dominates, with some mild hops in the finish, but both tastes are very mellow. A tiny bit of chocolate and charcoal in the mid-palate. Nicely balanced. Not very rich or complex, but the flavor is enjoyable.

M – Medium bodied, with a lot of carbonation for a stout, but it works well with the mild flavor characteristics for an easy drinking experience. Finishes dry. Easy to consume in big gulps.

O – A nicely rounded and well put together stout, perfect for six packs. Honestly I could have easily finished this in just a few minutes had I not been taking the time to review it. Nothing special or memorable, but no real flaws, either. I’d gladly drink this again if handed to me.

3.08/5  rDev -24.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Center poured from the bottle into an imperial pint glass. Had to stop mid pour or the head would have spilled out over the counter. Dark brown with a massive light tan head.

Smells pretty good, however the hops are too prominent. Nice taste with the same feeling about the amount of hops present in a stout.

This beer is a little too watery for the style.

Not a bad beer, I wouldn't turn it down but I won't buy it again, too many others taste better.
