Appearance: pours a dark black-ish brown color with a two finger tan head, some patchy lacing,

Smell: roasty chocolate, a little earthy coffee aroma on the tail end,

Taste: sweet stout malts, a little chocolate, solid stout taste,

Mouthfeel: I would say medium for a stout.

3.38/5  rDev -15.9%

Motor oil black with a light brown head that settles out to a fine cap of foam.

Low aroma of fig, raisin, and some espresso.

Thin flavor upfront, but moves quickly to dark malt, coffee and oak, hints of cocoa. Firm bitterness balances the malt. Could be more roasty and complex.

Full mouthfeel, but finishes tannic with a puckery linger, which detracts overall.

A- Black body with a big brown head. Lots of lacing and the head stays a while on top of the beer.

S- Pretty interesting. The first thing that came to mind was terraki bbq sauce.

T- Strong choclate taste up front follwed with a nice taste of hops when swallowing. Soon after a very nice roastiness comes out.

M- A little thick that really seems to cover the mouth well.

O- I think this is a pretty good beer. I would definitley drink it again. While I didn't care for the smell to much, it made up for it in taste.

2002-2003 limited release...

Big pour, dark/dark brown and opaque. Orange carbonation settles down in about 60 seconds. Laces in looping clumps. Coffee and orange rind-like impresssion to the big aroma. Flavor is somewhat more limited, a dark roasty coffee, slight sense of malted milk and the requisite scant hop. Mouthfeel is about medium to thinnish, but I pick up an offputting vegetable, almost smoked onion, sense to the profile. Not dominant by any means, just slightly annoying. Not an awful beer, but not a first choice to my tongue.

drank this brew last night with a buddy, I aquired it from a trade from a very kind girl on the other wedsite. She throw this one in as an extra and boy am I happy she did. This beer was poured from a 22oz bomber into a darkness snifter. It pours a motor oil black with a thick light brown head. This beer looks super thick and smells great like chocolate and dried fuits. After about a minute the head finally subsided enough to drink it. The smell and the look was gerat but the taste was just ok. I was expecting a big robust beer and it was kinda on the lighter side. The mouthfeel was good nothing too exciting, but still an over all good drinking brew

Purchased at the pike brewery downtown seattle.

Average stout. Tastes good. Nothing amazing, but solid beer. A little thin for my tastes. Enjoyable to drink. Problem is, it reminds me of 50 other stouts sitting on the shelf, it just doesn't stand out as a special beer. I'm glad I tried it, and the brewery was a pretty neat place.

Pours a dark black with a thin tan head that doesn't retain well. The aroma has some roasted malt notes upfront, along with chocolate and coffee, some dark fruits, molasses, and some burnt bread. The flavor is similar to the aroma with big roasty notes initially, along with dark fruits (plum, cherry), lower % dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, some burnt acridness and alcohol. The mouthfeel is moderate and drinkability is decent. Overall a decent but unspectacular stout.

Aromas of smoke and roasted malts; I get some bacon characteristics as well. There's lesser coffee, bitter chocolate, and a hint of licorice to round things out.

The taste is less than impressive. Bittersweet baker's chocolate, with a boat load of smoke and rauchbier tastes which I hate. I desperately crave some more sweetness for this beer to balance the rough bitterness and dry acrid flavors.

Mouthfeel is really full, mild balanced carbonation. Finishes really full and viscous; coats the mouth to a point of ruining the taste buds.

Overall, I had high expectations for this beer and I was delivered a smoky pork/bacon dry bitter mess. Not sure why people like consuming these flavors in beer, anyway. Not recommended, compared to the numerous better available styles available.

A vigorous pour into a pint glass gave a thin dark beige head that swiftly retreated to some islands and lacing about. It was black with the thinnest rim of brown.

Smelled of chocolate, roasted malts, hops, coffee, and hints of vanilla.

Flavors were similar to the smell.

It was typical in the mouth and medium bodied. This brew falls in the middle of the pack as far as Stout's go. No greatness or unique characteristics to be had, though nothing out of whack either..
