Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – The beer served a pitch black color with a one finger head of cream colored foam. The head has a moderate level of retention, fading to leave some rings of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is big of a roasted malt smell along with hints of chocolate and a little bit of caramel and molasses. Along with these aromas comes notes of vanilla and a little bit of crème.

Taste – The taste begins with a nice roasty base that has a light level of caramel and milk chocolate sweetness. Along with these flavors are notes of vanilla, which grow stronger in nature, along with a little bit of more earthy hop taste. The sweetness grows stronger in nature as the taste advances and is joined by some other darker flavors of coffee and a little bit of molasses. With some light woody tastes and a hint of herbal hop coming at the end, one is left with a lightly sweetened and chewy, but easy and flavorful dark flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the slightly thicker and chewier side with a carbonation level that is average. I would have liked a little lower carbonation for the dark flavors of the brew, but overall it was pretty decent due to its nice moderately dry character.

Overall – This was a rather enjoyable foreign extra stout. The abv. of 6.9 is very hidden rather well. It is a little sweeter then what I am accustomed to for the style, but very enjoyable and flavorful none the less.

Black in color with no penetration to light. There's a fingernail of khaki foam in top. Aroma is dark malt with just a trace of sweet molasses. The flavor is initially dak malt and slightly bitter with a rush of sweet dark malt quickly overtaking the palate. The mouth is creamy and lightly chewy.
Best by March 25 so we are a few weeks past that.

Black with a monstrous brown head that just wouldn't go away and left sticky lacing.

Aroma and taste - a nice blend of roasty notes with a touch of smoke and a little bit of burnt grill. There's a fair amount of sweetness too, giving it a bit of a milk stout character.

Body is pretty thick and chewy, leaving a lightly sweet, roasty afterthought.

As usual, upslope doesn't disappoint. So far upslope is batting 1000, and i have tried quite a few of their brews. Given their record, I certainly expect to keep trying their new offerings and enjoying the old ones.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Pours fudge brown and builds a nice tan head; impressive retention and a reasonable amount of lacing is left behind

Smell: Exceedingly roasty, with chocolate and fruit tones

Taste: Chocolate and coffee forward, with burnt toast flavors building, hints of fruit develop underneath with the roasted flavors returning in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with a somewhat over-carbonated mouthfeel

Overall: A bit too burnt and roasty and I also didn't care for the mouthfeel but the beer has its attributes and is worth a try

12oz bottle. Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a small, khaki-colored head of bubbly foam. It left some thin lacing on the glass. It smelled of roasted malt, biscuity notes, sweet caramel and some piney bitterness. Sweet chocolate, toasted caramel taste and a nice bitterness.

Pours ebony with 3 fingers of mocha colored head. Good lacing & average head retention

S: Cocoa, dark fruit

T: Dark fruit, cocoa & roastyness up front. Dryness, pears, plums, just a bit of iron as this warms, a little bit of fig as well. Finishes dry with dark fruit & just little bit of lactic sourness & leafy hops

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation

Pretty much to style, but nothing too exotic or exciting here
