This is a much after the fact review... I just noticed I had not done a review for this. This is from our trip to the brewery in December of 2015. The dinner was huge pieces of fried food and wonderful beers from the tap. Great offering, Northern brewing!

12oz can into a pint glass. canned 39/17, so closing in on 3 months old.

black body, thick creamy oatmeal colored head. not so much lacing, as a thin film. looks great.

struggling to get anything on the nose other than medium roasted malt.

you know, this is a pretty good stout. nicely roasted, not burnt malt. not smooth or weak. some coffee notes, even a faint booziness to it.

closer to full than medium on the mouth. faint vanilla and booze on the finish.

overall, a nice surprise here. given the silly name, i wasn't expecting that much, but this is a more than decent stout offering.

North County Brewing "Buck Snort Stout"
12 fl. oz. can, "CANNED 03/05/17" and sampled on 05/30/17
$2 @ Weis Market #231, Conshohocken, PA

Look: Typical stout appearance: brown-black body with a thin edge of dark mahogany at the base of the glass where light can slip through. Creamy dark tan head. Average head retention and lacing.

Smell: Ashen roastiness over dark chocolate with a bit of cold black coffee.

Taste: As the aroma suggests with plenty of dark chocolate, some molasses, a touch of leafy and grassy hops, and yeasty fruitiness like red berries and apple that in combination with the malt give it a note of raisin as well. A solid bitterness balances it, and it finishes dry, ashen, and roasty with the bitterness lingering.

Feel: Medium bodied with a standard carbonation.

Overall: Perhaps a bit too bitter, unless you like that, but everything else is good, particularly the fact that there's not too much dark malt acidity. Rich and satisfying. My only complaint would be that it's labeled as a "West Coast style stout" which in my understanding implies that it's at least a little bit hoppy, and usually hopped with Pacific northwest hops, but I don't find that here.

Appearance - Pours viscus black with thin tan cap that dissipates fairly quickly leaving only a ring of lacing.

Aroma - Lots of bitter chocolate and roasted malts, hints of coffee and a touch of vanilla.

Taste - Very nice flavor, mostly roasted malts and dark bitter chocolate but there is a ton of it. Just a hint of vanilla and molasses. Also a bit of spent coffee grounds.

Feel - Creamy full bodied slightly dry finish.

Overall - A very slid stout great flavors and aroma.

Pours black with two and a half fingers of khaki, foamy head. Head retention is fair with good lacing. Aroma is toast, nutty, and biscuit malts with a faint bready quality. Flavor profile is toasted, biscuit, and nutty malts. Very easy to drink, with a simple, dark flavor. Mouth feel is medium-thin to thin, with a creamy, smooth texture. Overall, an easy drinking stout with dark characteristics.

Served in a 12oz snifter.

Poured from a can into a tulip glass. Nice dark brown color with a decent beige head and good lacing. Smells of dark toast and berries. The taste is dark chocolate, kind of earthy wheat and toast. Not to thick or sweet. Pleasant.

Excellent brew! Thick'ish and very dark. Medium fizz. Lots of roast, caramel, and maybe some bitter chocolate is what I taste. Finishes dry, but a good finish. Maybe a bit of smoke on the finish too. This is one of my absolute favorites. Lots of flavor!
