S – Big roasted barley character, a slight bit of chocolate and an even slighter level of smokiness. Has a slight brett nose which wasn’t expected but always nice.
T – Start is a roasted malts and slight cookie dough taste. Hint of cherries and coffee at the center. Finish is a smoky bitterness with burnt oak
M – Very soft up front but has a chalky finish. Nice overall level of carbonation.
O – Quite possibly the closest beer I’ve ever had to Everett with only one downside and that’s the smokiness at the finish sticks around for a very long time. Without that, it would be a great porter but I wouldn’t call this one a stout.
