On tap in PDX near the "E" gates. One finger of tan head on a pitch black body.
Aroma is coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Great balance and boldness.
The taste is coffee, chocolate and roasted malt with the chocolate really shining through.
Texture is silky with low carbonation and heavy body.
Overall an excellent beer.

Tried on tap 28 Aug 2012 at Laurelwood, PDX terminal A.

Small brown head. Minimally carbonated. Very dark brown in color, almost opaque. Aroma is roast coffee and some chocolate. Fairly roasty bitter to start with some chocolate and mocha notes. Medium body. Alcohol not too strong. Bittersweet chocolate throughout. Finish and aftertaste roasty and bittersweet.

Not bad (and improves as it warms), but seems just a bit on the light side for a FES.

First had: on tap at Laurelwood Public House, Portland, OR

All the typical appearances of a stout: dark brown-black color with a small, creamy, beige head. Dark roasty malts in the aroma, and a bit of coffee and cocoa. Roasty taste, dark malts, bitter notes of coffee and cocoa, lightly hopped. Nothing you haven't seen or tasted before. Medium body, maybe thinner than you'd expect for a stout, but overall, not too bad.

Served in bubble pint glass. Poured the expected solid black color with about a half inch of thin light brown head that had no retention and only light lacing.

The aroma was nicely full of roasted notes, bordering on on burnt even, but had a solid underlying grain scent that was very pleasing. The flavors were very similar, typical rich roast, a hint of coffee and maybe a bit of chocolate way in the background. The coffee taste did linger a bit too long on the finish for my taste.

The body was a fair bit thinner than typical for the style, thinner than a lot of Porters and only as full as some Brown Ales I've had. Drinkability was good, except for the coffee finish (I don't drink coffee) I could see having a couple of these. Overall, a decent beer that's certainly worth a try if you see it.

Pitch black with a smooth, creamy tan head. Decent head retention.

A bit roasty with lots of bitter chocolate. Very slightly sweet. Good.

Very roasty with a touch of smoke. Resinous hops. Good, bitter and full of flavour.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite smooth.

A very nice stout with some great flavour. It’s not balanced per se but still very tasty.

I tried this one on tap over the weekend at a Laurelwood pub house in Battle Ground, WA.

This beer was black, totally opaque to light, but unfortunately had no head to speak of whatsoever. I generally prefer my stouts to have a nice brown head, so this was a bit disappointing.

The aroma was slightly sweet, comprised mostly of roasted malts and a little bit of coffee.

This stout was malty, and more bitter than the aroma indicated, particularly in the aftertaste, which is where most of the coffee flavor resided. The menu claimed chocolate flavor, but I didn't detect any chocolate at all. I got the feeling that if it was there at all the bitterness of the coffee may have overpowered it. All in all, a pretty generic-tasting stout.

The mouthfeel was fairly average, smooth, but a bit too thin for my taste. I prefer my stouts to be thicker, so this one didn't exactly make it onto my top ten list.

On a cold day, this stout would suffice as a decent winter warmer, but if I had a real craving for a good, hearty stout, I would be left disappointed. It's drinkable, but middle of the road.

Although this one is pretty roasty, I think it's more of an American stout. Black with a tan head, great retention & lacing. Nice roasty aroma & flavour (coffee, bakers chocolate, molasses, hints of licorice & nut). Solid bitterness, alcohol is not perceptible. Moderate body has a creamy mouthfeel. A great drinker.

Listed as 40 IBUs on the chalkboard at the NW Public House, where I had an imperial pint on draft. Poured pitch black with a small, creamy, dark tan head and a thick collar.

The smell was dominated by roasted malt. Peaking out from behind was a touch of sweetness and chocolate, but they are faint.

The taste is roasty malt bordering on burnt, and bittersweet chocolate. It is very rich and robust, classic micro brewpub stout that is nothing crazy but nicely done.

The body is unusually light but effervescent, which is surprising in light of how thick and oily it looks. Creamy and easily aroused with a quick swish.

This is a nice stout, but a bit to rich and robust to really session with.

3.43/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Appearance : Onyx brown opaque pour with a steady brown collar.

Aroma: Burnt toasted malt bready and cookie dough.

First swigs: Struggles to get to the stout level. Sweet sugary malts overtakes the stout flavor. Has some English Stout flavors, but is still wriggling to become a stout.

Feel: Full bodied, but lacks a definition. Soft caramel diluted feel. Needs a kick in a butt.

Last swigs: The only subpar brew at the impressive Laurelwood Brewpub.

Cheers!

A thin-bodied stout sampled at Laurelwood's new pub off NW 23rd. It pours black with a small head which quickly turned into a fine ring of foam. Not much lacing. Aroma was chocolatey and inviting. The stout put forth a big roasty chocolate flavor, and very similar to coffee. There was quite a good amount of hops to enhance the flavor of dark bitter chocolate. Like all Laurelwood beers, the mouthfeel was very thin, but it retained a stoutlike velvety smoothness, and on the whole, it felt ample in the mouth. Very clean tasting, despite the big flavors put forth. I liked this stout, but it wasn't seductive.
