Black in the glass, completely opaque with a thin layer of chocolate milk coloured head. Sheets of lacing abound. Thin head remains for some time.

Smell immediately brings roasted coffee beans to mind. I'm not a coffee guy, but I'd say dark roast. Straightforward aroma, but pleasant.

Much more bitter than expected. Coffee flavour for sure with bitter roasted notes throughout. Citrus hops in finish so strong that blindfolded I would easily have been confused by the style. Different, and tasty.

Full bodied, heavy enough to dull the carbonation but doesn't feel flat in any way. Good mouthfeel.

This comes across as being a very big beer, but stays a bit more drinkable than the RIS/Double Stouts out the by not being too high in abv. Even nicer than I had hoped for.

A small, brown/toffee-colored head. The beer pours black, dark brown against the light. Smells of sweet chocolate with some coffee. Bitter chocolate in the tangy, sweetish front. Middle is quite thick, only hinting at sweet cream. Smoky, bitter chocolate finish. Coffee in the aftertaste with psycho bitter carbon. It's good. Very bitter, roasty... almost charred. It sweetens and develops more chocolate when warm.

Nice foamy light brown head covers the deep dark brown hue. Candyish and spicy nose. Rich dark malts have minty and thyme-like vapors. You can tell it’s gonna feel creamy from the nose. Surprisingly, hops are not a big factor in this one, gentle cocoa roastiness are paired with an effective and complex nut array to create a globally spicy flavour profile. As weird as it sounds, I feel this would pair well with asiatic food. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, smooth texture.

Pours a black color that tries its best not to let any light through, mission accomplished!!. Head is light coffee colored with mini craters and very very nice lacing left behind. Aroma is of roasted malts and coffee beans, very pleasant and not overpowering. Taste is also nice with a great blend of roasted coffee beans and bittersweet chocolate. Balance is nice between roast flavors, coffee, chocolate and hops. Good carbonation makes this stout very drinkable with a good kick of bitter at the end. Decent balance..

Got this from a trade with natelocc787. Cheers!

A- Pours a dark black color with only a hint of light coming through on the edges. A thin beige head leaves a bit of lace.

S- Black licorice and dark chocolate make up the nose.

T- Full roasted malt flavor with some burnt coffee and a touch of hop bitterness in the finish. A slight warming sensation is created by the alcohol on the way down. As this brew warms up, the alcohol becomes more apparent.

M- Medium/full bodied with a creamy feel and low carbonation.

D- A very solid stout with a nice flavor.

The Pike Streeet XXX Stout poured black as night with a solid 2 finger foam head and some pretty good retention. The lacing was sporadic and sudsy.

In the smell category I got the roasted malts and bitter chocolate.

The taste was filled with bitter coffee and semi sweet chocolate. The roasted malts lingered on the tongue for some time and left some enjoyable bitterness as well. Overall a pretty good domestic stout.

Baker’s chocolate, coffee and roasted malts pop out in the aroma, but overall the aroma is less intense than my ideal. Poured a very deep black with a dark prown/purple tinted mocha head. Fore is full of dark roasted notes along with chooclate, plum, molasses, raisin, bourbon and even some Brown ale nuttiness. A whole lot of flavor points here. Finish is laced with cream, chocolate, low bitterness coffee and a kick of alcohol. A damn fine beer.

They don't get much blacker than this. Held it up to the setting sun and not a whisper of light. None. Zip. Nice rich tan head with web upon web of lacing.

Liking the aroma. Rich roasted malt, coffee, chocolate with some nice floral hoppiness that is lacking in other extra stouts. Intresting take on the extra stout style. Definitely has the dark roast down pat. Slight hint of chocolate with the slight sourness that you find in Guiness X stout. Pike has hopped their version up which surprisingly I liked. Usually I slam West Coast brewer's because of their liberal use of hop, but in this case I find it balances the sourness quite well. Mouthfeel is quite smooth, even with the hoppiness.

An interesting take on the stout/x-stout style and I rather liked it.

Appearance looks to be a dark brown to black with a thick creamy firm brown head with nice lace. Smell of sweet dark malts, chocolate, molassas and dark fruits. Taste of strong coffee, molassas, roasted malts and the hoppiness balances nicely with the flavor. Mouthfeel seem viscous going down slick with a roasted malt bitter bite at the end. Robust is a good word for this one.

No light is getting through this one. Inky black with a creamy tan head. The head dissipates down to a slight disc that leaves some nice lacing. The aroma is mild, with some light notes of roasted malt and coffee. The taste is pure dark roasted malt. It has a nice burnt astringency tempered with a nice earthy hops on the finish. It has a good weight to the body and a nice silky feel on the palate. It's a straight-forward rich and malty stout.
