Pours a finger and half of tan head on a black body.
The aroma is roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate.
The taste has a mild sweet start, then goes to coffee bitterness. Great profile.
The texture is crisp.
Really enjoyable.

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...

On Tap at the BeerMongers.... here in PDX... a keg traveled!

- Rich dark brown... can barely see through the edges... light mocha to light brown head... light lacing....

- Rich grain, oats... roasty... pine hops, w/ a touch of floral notes.... overall smells balanced.

- Smooth malty grain, rich and lightly sweet... little bready.. roasted and nutty.... hops are present to balance this one out... light citrus and pine...

- Medium bodied... not at all chewy or sticky....

- little filling, robust, and quite drinkable... a meal in a bomber! Worth the have, and certainly fantastic for a new brewery!

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.

Pours black with a creamy, tan head.

Roasty, espresso malt notes, with a creamy body and mild carbonation.

A well done stout. Nothing out of this world, but certainly something I would enjoy having again.

This is an American Brown ale? Anyway, on tap at the Belmont Station fringe festival the other day.

The beer pours a blackish brown color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is pretty attractive (for a stout... not sure about a brown ale), showcasing coffee, licorise and burnt toast. The beer has a very prominent roasty malt aroma, but smells as if it will be pretty dry on the palate. In fact the beer is indeed pretty dry, despite the roasty component. Otherwise, the licorise and coffee seem to take top billing in the flavor profile, with the very modest sweetness turning quite dry, even leading to a hint of light sour. Mouthfeel is soft and creamy, with the beer showing a long, dry, slightly bitter finish. Alcohol doesn't seem very high in this one (maybe in the 6% range?), and drinkability isn't bad at all.

This came across to me as combination oatmeal, irish, milk stout (though I wouldn't disagree with Terry's suggestion that it's very reminescent of a schwarzbier as well), and one that I found to be uncomplicated and easy drinking. The (presumed) low alcohol is a bonus.
