Bottle from the source.
Pours a solid dark brown with ruby highlights at the edges and a decent sized tan head that slowly dissipates to a ring on top. Aromas of dark and milk chocolate with lots of creamed coffee and bits of caramel and toffee to round it out. The flavor is rich chocolate and caramel with roasted creamed coffee and some light sugar and toffee to round it out. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation, and a creamy silky mouthfeel. I was impressed with this brew, its a very nice stout. Maybe a bit more body than an Irish dry should have, but I enjoyed the heck out of it.

Pours pitch black with a couple fingers worth of a mocha head. Decent retention leaving little puffy clouds on this dark brew.

Smells like a nice strong cup of coffee with a hint of sweetness.

Roasted grains and coffee, a nice touch of sweet appears as it warms.

Great mouthfeel all be it fairly thin, medium carbonation with a nice dry finish.

This review is adapted from my previous notes, dated September 6th, 2013

A- Timber Hog is absolutely the blackest beer I have seen to date, no transparency whatsoever. A pleasant tan head of about a 2 finger width crowns this liquid that resembles crude oil; although it doesn't survive completely, at least a 1/2 finger worth of head is present throughout.

S- All I could pick up in the nosing dept. were intense notes of fresh dark roast coffee and burnt, outrageously dark chocolate. The smell is quite impressive and really encourages you to take that first sip promptly.

T- The taste is much like the smell but with the awesome addition of a hop barrage that beautifully balances out the entire brew.

M- The mouthfeel is relatively thin when compared to other elements of the beer. Medium to thin body with fairly high carbonation.

O- Picaroons Timber Hog Stout has just joined the list of my favourite Stouts and rightfully so. Not only is this a pleasing beer aesthetically but it has the smell and taste to back it up. This is a profoundly drinkable beer that should be enjoyed by everyone who has the chance to get their hands on it.

Unbelievable chunky lace on the glass. The head isn't nearly impressive, but it lasts. The liquid is near black where no light shines through.

Burnt chocolate that smells like old, ignored coffee. No cream, no hop--just black coffee.

The body is thin and the carbonation is relatively high. This has a burnt coffee flavor like the smell suggests. There are also a mild sour cherry notes. There's a bit of harshness to this brew that reminds me of Beamish Stout.
