look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Can at reefer temp into a goblet
Aroma malty with chocolate overtones
Head average (3 cm), frothy, light brown, mostly lasting
Lacing good
Body dark brown, opaque
Flavor begins malty with a hint of bitter chocolate – no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Ends with a slightly bitter chocolatey aftertaste, short lived
Palate medium to full body, creamy, carbonation soft.


Actually a decent stout, around $33/case of 24 cans. I’ve had this on tap and the nitro version as well – my go-to beer at North Country

I’m not sure what a “West Coast style stout” is but I am willing to try it and find out.

Pours a dark brown color with copper edges and over a finger of beige head that dissipates quickly but leaves nice lacing behind anyway. The roasted notes are mild in both the nose and the flavor profile. The finish is nicely bitter – some of the bitterness comes from the roast, some comes from the hops.

I guess a West Coast style stout is similar to a black ale. Either way, this is pretty darn good.

Picked this up at my House of 1,000 beers for about $1.75. Into a pint glass.

A - Looks good a deep dark shade of brown almost black. Head is a nice tan shade with good lacing.
S - Smell is good chocolate malt, roasty goodness, and a herbal hint.
Y - Well most memorable is the best part is the balanced hops to malt ratio. Not overall sweet or roasty. Poundable.
M - Light to medium in body not watery or chewy .

Overall its a tasty stout easy to chug but I don't think I will get it again.

I tried this on tap @Al's Pizza and Subs in Enola, served chilled in a pint.

The color is dark coffee color with thick creamy tan head. The smell is of roasted malt with a sweetness of caramel with light sweetened coffee-like aroma. The feel is good with a thick sweet body with medium carbonation and moderately roasted with low bitterness and no noticeable alcohol.

The taste is has a very malt and toasted grain dominance with only enough bitterness to balance with semi-sweet finish. This stout has a good flavor and is drinkable for the style but seems kind of generic as far as standard stouts go it is fine

Serving type: on-tap

Stout offering from our local (Slippery Rock) brewhouse. Poured from a 12 ounce can into my snifter. The true beauty of this beer is the appearance (and the price). 2 fingers of a rich mocha head over a pitch black body. Head retained really well. Aromas of dark malt, with hints of chocolate and coffee (amazing how they come through from the malts, even when no adjuncts are used)... quite rich aromas for a can. Taste not as pronounced... all of the associated tastes were there, though not in force. A bit of molasses on the end, and a balanced bitterness. Not bad taste-wise at all... but a bit watery. Smooth, though again a bit watery, on the mouthfeel. I support local, and as such, will continue to enjoy these on occasion. However, I will remain on the lookout for bigger, badder stouts.
