Pours a black color. One inch head of an off-tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of sweet malt, slight roasted malt, spicy hops, slight alcohol, and a hint of chocolate. Fits the style of an American Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, slight roasted malt, spicy hops, slight alcohol, and a hint of chocolate. Overall, good appearance, great blend, but lacking depth of body.

Black color, thin white head. No discernible aromas. Strong malt flavors with a delayed finish of burnt wood, which leaves a weird aftertaste. I don’t get any of the caramel, chocolate, or coffee notes the bottle claims.

Pours a black in color with a tan head. Nose has hints of chocolate, roasted malts and dark, burnt coffee. When tasting, you get the roasted malts and chocolate with the burnt coffee on the back end. Pretty good.

Picked up a bomber at Loews in Banner Elk Saturday for $4.49. Bottled on 3-8-16.

Beer poured black with a nice tan head.

Nose has hints of roasted malts.

Taste is roasted malts forward with a decent amount of grapefruit hops that is leaving a lingering bitterness on the palate.

Mouthfeel is thinner than hoped and somewhat smooth.

Overall this is a decent brew that is worth a shot.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Look: The color is dark brown that is fairly clear when held to the light. It has a tan head.

Smell: It has aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, some burnt smells, and low fruit aroma most like dark fruits.

Taste: The flavors are roasted malts with chocolate compliments. There are some burnt flavors that are moderate. The fruit flavors are low and dark.

Feel: It has a medium feel with slightly above moderate carbonation.

Overall: As an American Stout, it was a little more burnt than and expected and fruits were more dark than citrus. With that said, it was a malt driven flavor beer that has good taste overall and was easy drinking.
