The Sasquatch is alive and well. Picked this bottle off the singles shelf at Binny's. The beer pours an opaque black with thin ecru head that is lacing nicely. The scent carries chocolate and hints of espresso. The taste is bolstered by coffee bitterness with some semi sweet chocolate. The mouthfeel is full body with smooth carbonation. Overall this is a decent stout, perfect for the colder nights.

Pours a rich creamy black/ruby tone.
Head is rich, thick, and really a good looking American stout.
Smells of cocoa, oats, coffee, roasted black barley, musty earthy notes. Bitter cocoa, touch of grassiness from the hops. Finishes with mocha espresso, good dosage of dark roast coffee, and rolled oat. Some pepper is in there as well.
Flavor is really smooth.Really good in fact. Chocolate, coffee, cream, pepper, hazelnuts, toffee, nice bite of oat bitterness and yeast pepper to clean up the finish.
Mouthfeel is smooth, medium rich. It allows the flavors to really come out and showcase their individual characteristics.
Good stout, too bad only made once.

It poured a very dark black for a non imperial, nice finger and half of mocah head, really good looking stout here.

Smell is roasty malts, bitter sweet chocolate, slight nut smell?

Ok taste is very unique for a stout, HUGE bakers chocolate, basically like eating semi sweet baking chocolate chips, huge roasty charachter. and a bitter coffee does show its face a little in the finish,

Mouthfeel is medium light and does not really match the flavor which to me is world class, I wish they would have added a little more bulk and silkyness to the body, but it will certainly not keep me from enjoying this beer

I grabbed this one as a single on a whim.... Shared that single with a couple of people at the local bottle shop and I am sure glad I did because that prompted me to get the 6 pack which I now have two more glorious bottles to drink....

Great American stout that I am sure many have not heard of or seen as I live an hour and half from where it is produced and came into contact with it by accident. GOOD STUFF!

Bottle I forgot about in the move. Not sure how old it is, but it is really nice.

This beer has a 1/2 inch dense khaki head with really nice lacing a great retention. Aroma is nutty with some light cocoa. A touch of off-putting minerally almost metallic aroma comes through, but it is a background note and does not ruin the beer. Flavor is quite roasty and lightly chocolately. Nutty. More like a dark intense brown ale than a stout if that makes any sense. Nice though. Could use a bit more body and creaminess.

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler glass

A- Pours black with a thin, but persistent, head. Good lacing on the side of the glass.

S- Chocolatey, and a few coffee notes.

T- Strong chocolate flavors, fairly creamy, with some notes of coffee, cream, and roasted malt.

M- Medium bodied, just a bit lighter than the stouts I typically drink.goes down easy.

O- A good beer, was worth trying. The description says they only brewed it once. When did they brew it? How long ago did they stop? 'Cause I just bought this today. Anyway, it's a good example of a stout, with all the flavor profiles I typically look for, but like I said not as heavy as a lot of stouts I have had.
