Picked up a growler from the brewery.

Drift Line pours a stout like black with only ruby red highlights at the edge of my glass. The mocha colored head shows nice retention. Smells of subdued roast with a touch of chocolate. Faint herbal hop scent.

Nice smooth mouthfeel from the oats. Begins with a chocolate and slightly sweet flavor that gives way to a moderate level of roast and slight hop bitterness. Well balanced brew.

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

Appearance: Nice brown color, good head, leaves lacing

Smell: Dominated by roasted malts

Taste: Roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, toffee

Mouthfeel: Medium body, good carbonation

Overall: Pretty good, but this is a bit more like a stout. Not the most balanced flavor wise, drift wood (BA version of this) is much better and more balanced
