look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Served on tap into a nonic glass.

A- Poured black with off-white soapy head that left quite a bit of splashy lace.

S- Pretty big roasted malt and dark fruit notes, some roasted coffee notes.

T- Pretty dark fruit forward for a stout with lots of roasted malt and some coffee notes. Not really getting any chocolate notes.

M- Medium body, pretty smooth, soft carbonation, and mostly dry finish.

O- A pretty solid stout from Boneyard, not quite as bold as I what I have come to expect from Boneyard.

Pint at "b2" Taphouse in Salem. $4.00 Dark brown beer..ruby hints around the edge,small tan head..it goes fast Dark chocolate,semi-bitter coffee aromas,small hint of floral hop very small. Nice. .Taste similar to the aroma but with milky aspects and no hop. Very smooth stuff. Good smooth mouth feel..goes down a treat. Very nice drinkable porter.

I had this on-tap in a straight-sided glass at Special Brews in Lynnwood, WA.

Appearance: totally black with a one-finger head of creamy tan foam. Quite attractive.

Smell: light roast malt aroma; quite low in intensity. Well-composed but a bit too subtle.

Taste: classic ashy roast-barley character, plus a very light-intensity dark-color fruitiness toward the end of the palate. Very clean and stylistically accurate; I like it.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a good level of carbonation and a decent creaminess.

Overall: I could quaff quite a bit of this stuff. It's not precisely perfect, but it's pretty darn good.

Had this on draught at a local tap house. I love this beer!

A - It's dark brown /black... It's what I would expect, so I can't really go crazy because a stout is black...

S - great coffee and chocolate aroma. No caramel or fruit

T - quite perfect, I have to say the best American Stout I have ever had; although, it is a style that is not very popular, but still.

M - I thought, and this could be from the tap house, but it was over carbonated and, of course, served too cold. In South Eastern Washington everyone expects beer to be 35 degrees F...

O - I keep coming back for this beer. It is so well made and balanced. I wish I had better access to Boneyard...

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Central Waters snifter. Thanks to mrmarmot for hauling this one back from Idaho Falls.

A: Pours a deep dark brown color. Aggressive pour leads to a thin half finger head that disappears quickly. Ring around the top of the beer sticks for the length of the serving. No lacing.

S: Pretty simple nose, toasted chocolate malts, smoke (like a rauchbier), cocoa and a really nice hop profile round out a nice, basic aroma.

T: Follows the nose, hoppy black ale with nice toasted malts and a touch of smoke.

M: Nice feel, well carbonated, nice crisp finish.

O: A pretty solid beer, easy drinker. Well worth seeking out!

Serving type: bottle

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Poured dark brown with a small khaki colored cap, leaving minimal lacing as I drank

S: Nice roastiness with coffee, some cocoa and a blend of light but noticable flowers and pine

T: Nice roastiness upfront with coffee, cocoa, a it dry yet creamy. SOme pine resin can be detected

M: Medium bodies, dry and nice not so bitter finish but the body was a just a wee thin I felt

O: Tasty, good rep for the style and another Boneyard score.

Poured a deep cola brown/black into a tulip with a finger of light khaki head. Aroma dominated by roasty coffee, cocoa, and hints of smoke.

Moderate carbonation and a creamy, somewhat light mouthfeel. Mild coffee up front followed by unexpected sweet notes of cocoa and caramel. Lingering finish returns to the bitter/smoke character.

Quite a bit of flavor for a relatively low gravity schwarzbier. Good balance of roast/smoke and malty sweetness.

Serving type: growler
