Thanks Jean! Glad I get to try this one. Enjoyed at Cellar Temp in a stemmed wine glassA – Murky, almost black appearance. Impossible to see through but some light brown / amber edges. 4 finger head on a slow pour..looks like this one is bottle conditioned.

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.
