I really want to like these guys, and based on the description, I thought for sure this would be a hit for Santiam. Sigh... guess again. On tap at Bier Stein last night.

Although described as a stout, the beer pours a fairly dark amber color with minimal head retention and lacing. I think BS has only recently put this on tap, but for all the world it had the look (and smell, and taste) of a beer that had been sitting around for a while. On the nose I initially got nothing. However, as the beer warmed I did pick up some very light sweet malt and rum, but that really was it. I'll take the brewer's word for it that there's some coconut in this brew, because there was no sign of it on the nose or on the palate. The flavor profile was just more of the same, and there really was nothing exciting or enjoyable about drinking this beer. Alcohol was well integrated into the flavor profile, at least I'll give them that.

Mehhh....

sampler on tap at the Salem Bite Brew-n-Food festival

rum barrel aged (server said the barrels are from rogue), barrel nicely up front, finishes smooth, mild chocolate/cocoa, sticky, quick tang of hops in the middle that vanishes before you realize it's there. coconut isn't making itself known very much. color of strong dark coffee, no lacing. very nice, best of the bunch today.
