Pours jet black, thin tan head.

Smells of cocoa, molasses and a bit of hop bitterness.

Nutty bitterness in the flavor with molasses, some smokiness, licorice and dark honey sweetness.

Medium body with a bit of tingly carbonation.

Pretty good stout with a unique flavor, I liked this a lot and would have it again. Haven't had a stout that tastes quite like this one before.

My favorite offering that I had from North Country,came in a standard pint glass a a deep pitch black with a one finger sized roasted almond colored head.Heavily roasted malt,deep espresso roast aromas with some unsweetenend chocolate and a hint of mollasses as well.The flavors near intense in its roasted character and slightly burnt with a big dry earthy presence from a healthy dose of hops to round it out.Not a stout for the meak its roasted to the hilt and has big hops,personally I love it.

I love all the canned beer available from these smaller PA breweries, it's a good trend...I remember having this on tap at the source a few years back. The can pours pitch black bodied stout with just barely ruby highlights, big thicket of tan head forms thick dimpled cloudy texture speckled lacing scattered. Aroma roasted dark malts provide hints of dark chocolate/coffee, nice herbal mint notes that work well within the hop/malt combo. Medium bodied creamy texture with mellow carbonation. Easy to drink nice stout in a can.

A thanks to the creator of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a black color with a 1 inch head. Smell is a bit sweet, chocolatey. Taste is roasted malts, some hops, a hint of chocolate, surprising bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

Part of a 5oz sample platter.

Stouts to me are like girls to a 12 year old - you know you should like them, but you're not sure why/how yet. I'm learning though, and this one could be that 1st crush you remember a long time.

This, surprisingly, was my 2nd choice of 7 samples this afternoon. Of course it had a wonderful color (orangish ebony, just almost opaque) with wonderfully tight cream colored head that clung tightly & long with lace. The nose was comforting - warm, deep oatmeal with a slight sweetness to it.

The most surprising (and enjoyable) aspect was what I called its "velvet bitterness". It has a great hop bite, but sooo smooth, very enjoyable. The throat eased up on the hops to a slight bitter with some caramel undertones to help it down.

This may have spoiled me for stouts in the future. Well worth trying & enjoying regularily.
