Boise Brewing Black Cliffs

What the brewers say

“Well-balanced flavor between the rich chocolate and coffee tones and the plentiful Northwest hops character. Pine and citrus aromas play well with the dark malt aromas, and the body and mouthfeel are all a stout should be.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Very strong coffee, moderate malt sweetness, caramel, touch of alcohol, toffee, touch of plum, and even a little funky. As it warms, there are stronger licorice notes and a hint of marshmallow.”

Flavor: “Piney/citrusy hops, roast malt, dark Caramalt, and full body. Medium bitterness leads to a drying finish. Going deeper, it tastes like a raw hops tea with light malt sweetness, but strong bitterness holds it.”

Overall: “Relatively straightforward American stout. Fair bit of hops that go throughout. May be a tad grassy for some.”
