Poured a dark amber chocolate brown with a half inch creamy head into a standard pint glass.

Aroma is sweet with coffee and hop notes.

Taste immediately gives the impression of strong hops in this stout. Sweet coffee favors that mesh well with the hoppiness.

Very smooth and not at all watery. Almost just right.

Solid stout overall that I would revisit again and again

Purchased a bottle back in 2009 and have had in my cellar until this evening. Drinking it tonight to celebrate two years of home ownership. Poured into a Great Divide Yeti stout tulip glass. Dark brown colored body, with a medium sized mocha colored head. The head dissipated soon, but left some nice lacing on the glass. There was a pleasant smell of smoke and baker's chocolate. Taste was very inviting. Lots of notes of coffee, chocolate cake, and root beer. At first though, this beer left a somewhat too harsh bitter coating on my palate. But as the beer warmed up to almost near room temp, that seemed to fade away. There was a nice and creamy mouthfeel at the end. This beer held up nicely for almost two years in the beer cellar, and it would be worth purchasing more at this low price point.

Purchased one of these fine bottles directly from the brewery in downtown Seattle while visiting family at UW. The restaurant staff is very welcoming and helpful. I recommend you drop in on them for a great experience.
===

Appearance: Very dark brown, silky caramel around the edges. With a careful pour, a delicate head is created.

Aroma: Of a fine espresso with a hint of dark chocolate

Taste: Taking a small sip, a subtle citrus flavoring, and a touch of bitterness.

Mouth feel: Nice foaminess with just the right amount of carbonation.

Drink-ability: Goes down smoothly when enjoyed in small sips.

Serving type: bottle

Overall: A nice solid stout for a chilly rainy night in Seattle.

OMG, is this ever a great beer!
Had it on-tap at Hop-In Brew (Nov. 16th).

The darkest brown head (on a pitch black stout) that I have ever encountered.
Roasted malt aroma is heavenly.
Flavors come at you fast and furious. It's malty, it's smoky, it's caramel, it's....absolutely delicious.
My only complaint was that, because the higher alcohol level, I couldn't have more than one and still drive home that night.
