look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 750ml bottle into a nonic
Pours a dark, opaque, brown with a dark tan head. Head is big and bubbles up quick and disappears almost as quickly, doesn't leave much behind. Smell is dark and roasted malts, a bit underwhelming. Roasted malts are also prominent in the taste as well as dark fruits and lots of dark chocolate with some faint hop notes to round things out. Mouthfeel is disappointing, much thinner than I had expected. I expected better from Bear Republic, just kind of a mediocre stout in my humble opinion. I felt it was too light in every possible way.
