Taster at North Country. Near black pour, thin, fine beige head. Light roasty aroma, notes of chocolate. Aroma is sweet and roasty, chocolate, cherry coke. Lingering bitterness.

Poured into a grip shaped goblet: color is solid black, head is light tan with fine bubbles and presents 1 finger thick, head dissipates to a ring and spotty top with light lacing.

Smell is mixed malt: roast, chocolate, light crystal, and light creaminess; definite hop aroma of light grass and herbal notes, hint of earth and pine.

Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, crystal sweetness, some creaminess then a hop character that is earthy and grassy, light pine.

Mouthfeel is low/moderate carbonation, moderate sweetness, low/moderate bitterness with a lingering creaminess.

Overall a full bodied, roasty, chocolatey stout with a moderate hop character and light lingering sweetness.

Pours dark with tan head. Aroma isn’t pleasant which matches the taste. Taste is like a buck snout. I have 5 more to suffer through to finish my six pack. Really disappointing.

A bit too bitter for my taste. Not much sweetness. Alcohol is hidden.

Poured a black body with great and long-lasting tan head. The aroma is mostly a roasted and grainy malt aroma with little else. Fuller-bodied, slightly dry, roasted malts with an almost coffee malt flavor with a dry, toasty edge and not off but this beer doesn't really settle with me (don't get any funky ingredients, though). Not a bad stout but really non-descript and worth trying but that is it.

Pour is black from all angles with a dark tan head. Dark chocolate and char on the nose, as well as a distinct piney hop aroma.

The piney hops are really forward on the taste, but the dark chocolate and char flavors tame the hop beast. This is a nice spin in the “traditional” stout, I’d have this in my beer fridge always if I had access to it.

Buck Snort - North Country Brew Co
West Coast style stout - 7% abv
Canned 12/6/17
Purchased for $2.29 at Monde Market

L - 2.5 finger hazelnut head atop a black body.

S - roast, bread, citrusy hops. Smells more like a black ipa than a stout.

T - soy sauce, roast, smoke. Citrus and dirty/earthy hops. Quite a bitter finish. No sweetness. Very little detectable booze.

F - medium body with higher than average carb.

O - I just can’t get past the soy sauce in the taste. That aspect ruins a stout for me, and this one has it in spades.

Can to snifter (canned 09/19/17). Recommended by bottle shop guy in PA.

LOOK: Dark black, very small head. It's a flat stout.
AROMA: lots of good nuttiness in the aroma with the usual roasted barley, cocoa, coffee aromas.
TASTE: not quite up to snuff with the expectation from the aroma, but good roastiness; good balance of chocolate and roasted grains. Late flavors taste a little stale.
FEEL: pretty flat. Even the can does not feel like it has any internal pressure.

OK. Tasty, but nothing special.
