On tap at the Issaquah Brewhouse. I don't know if it is made there or shipped up from Orrih-gawn.
One finger head, not as much effervescence as the industry standard's Guinness. I had two to finish up a night after being already soused. These went down very well, and in the end had the effect of an elephant tranquilizer. I have not slept so deeply or efficiently in years. Maybe they could call this beer "Inception."
I would love to get my hands on a keg of this stuff.
Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to BuckeyeNation for this quote: "I will make it a felony to drink small beer"
-King Henry VI, part II (act iv, scene ii)
A: Black, heavy without highlights, abundant dark tan, rocky head, not so much lacing.
S: Hoppy stout, ala Boris. Serious char, wood, chocolate, latte.
T: Taste is intense. Espresso like with hops. Grass, hay, wood, charcoal, coffee. wine-like. This is a great stout with great intensity. meditation beer.
MF: Creamy, dense, woody, flinty, good feel. Not as oily as TedFidy, similar to Boris, Narwhal.
One of my favorites. (But I love hoppy stouts). Best from Rogue.
Serving type: bottle
