My issue with McMenamins' beers, is that although they are microbrews, they don't seem to be quite as distinguishable by flavor, as other brands. They hit a mid-range, without pushing taste extremes or varieties (compared to such breweries as Blue Moon, Dogfish Head, or Lagunitas). Therefore they are only average beers, which is a shame, coming from such interesting authentic establishments as their facilities are known for.

This stout had the traditional opacity and darkest brown coloration, but very little head.

No smell to speak of; but if anything a little more hoppy than malty.

Unfortunately, I didn't detect any exceptional flavoring...I would almost call it a brown ale, with hoppy dryness. No molasses sweetness or nuttiness or coffee detectable... almost like a lager except for the color and flatness on the tongue. No aftertaste, either. Very simple, uncomplicated.

For me, this was too thin to be a 'stout'. I missed any creaminess at all, even in the head.

Average drinkability...almost quaffable; nothing really to savor on or off the tongue and nose; easily forgettable.

4.03/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Had this brew at John Barleycorn's in Tigard, Oregon.

Appearance - Deep Brown, almost black (SRM = 35)

Smell- There was a nutty coffe smell right off the bat, like a coffee lightly seasoned with a bit of hazelnut. Pretty much sums up this stout from here on out.

Taste - the nutty coffee smell gives way to just that, a light hazelnut and coffee tast. Delicious, fill bodied stout with a good 6.45 abv and smooth aftertaste that doesn't linger too heavy with the faintest bitterness. Leaves a bit of coffee breath though :P

Mouthfeel- lightly carbonated, flavor and bubbles stay on the middle of the tongue while the liquid slides down.

overall a great stout to begin the night of great beers to be had. Cheers.

Serving type: on-tap
