Good tasting coffee like / imperial stout brew. Not sure why they don't offer it outside the NW US. They really should. Tasty and in the imperial stout class a 4/5 which I think deserves to be tried. Got it on vacation in Portland OR but sad I can't get it once a week back home. Very thick dark syrupy almost but yet pleasant to the coffee lovers that also love beer.

Very dark color, compelling.
Nose is ok, to type, roasted malt.
Flavor is interesting but not great, hints of sweetness with hoppy bitterness that's rather unusual for a stout.
Mouthfeel is pretty good, not over carbonated.
Finish is OK, but not my thing.

Pours a black color. 1/4 inch head of an off-tan color. Good retention and great lacing. Smells of roasted malt, slight sweet malt, hint of oatmeal, slight pine, hint of alcohol, and a hint of yeast. Fits the style of an American Double / Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a slight bitterness. Tastes of roasted malt, slight sweet malt, hint of oatmeal, slight pine, hint of alcohol, and a hint of yeast. Overall, good appearance, aroma, blend, body, and complexity.

On tap at the Beergarden in Eugene Oregon.
Opaque black body with a good tan head that leaves some patterned sticky lacing.
More bitter than sweet. Hints of espresso, bitter chocolate, and burnt sugar.

Very dark stout. Chocolaty brown head. Streaky lacing. The smell is toasted malt, faint cocoa and espresso. The flavor is quite rich, vanilla and black walnut. Coffee notes and light alcohol heat in the finish. Chocolate in the aftertaste, with more of the toasted malt. Full and thick mouthfeel. A good stout overall.

Looks great, with a good head that fades to a nice cap that lasts. Smell meets expectations, with only light hop presence. Nicely balanced hop finish, with lots of dark and toasty malts. Good standard stout.
