On tap at Belmont Station during Fringe Fest OBF week.

Dark brown/almost black opaque body, no visible carbonation. One finger light tan head, quick dissipation with minimal lacing. Some roasted malts in the nose, balanced with a bit of sweetness and floral hops. The taste is chocolate and coffee with some sweet malts, but not a lot of hoppiness. Mouthfeel is pretty thin, some effervescence leading to a fairly dry finish. Drinkability *may* be pretty good, but not sure about the style, thought I would assert this isn't an American Brown Ale. John's suggestion of a sweet stout makes more sense. A bit too sweet for my taste.

Pours black with a creamy, tan head.

Roasty, espresso malt notes, with a creamy body and mild carbonation.

A well done stout. Nothing out of this world, but certainly something I would enjoy having again.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

appearance - pours a dark brown/black, light white head, not much lacing

smell - roasted malts, some chocolate/coffee notes

taste - dominant roasted malts, some coffee notes, slightly bitter finish

mouthfeel - pretty darn light and probably the biggest downfall of the beer, heavy carbonation...too much

drinkability - the beer was fine, not very complex, too much carbonation and not enough body, could use some evolution

Served on tap into a nonic glass.

A- Poured black with off-white soapy head that left quite a bit of splashy lace.

S- Pretty big roasted malt and dark fruit notes, some roasted coffee notes.

T- Pretty dark fruit forward for a stout with lots of roasted malt and some coffee notes. Not really getting any chocolate notes.

M- Medium body, pretty smooth, soft carbonation, and mostly dry finish.

O- A pretty solid stout from Boneyard, not quite as bold as I what I have come to expect from Boneyard.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Central Waters snifter. Thanks to mrmarmot for hauling this one back from Idaho Falls.

A: Pours a deep dark brown color. Aggressive pour leads to a thin half finger head that disappears quickly. Ring around the top of the beer sticks for the length of the serving. No lacing.

S: Pretty simple nose, toasted chocolate malts, smoke (like a rauchbier), cocoa and a really nice hop profile round out a nice, basic aroma.

T: Follows the nose, hoppy black ale with nice toasted malts and a touch of smoke.

M: Nice feel, well carbonated, nice crisp finish.

O: A pretty solid beer, easy drinker. Well worth seeking out!

On Tap at the BeerMongers.... here in PDX... a keg traveled!

- Rich dark brown... can barely see through the edges... light mocha to light brown head... light lacing....

- Rich grain, oats... roasty... pine hops, w/ a touch of floral notes.... overall smells balanced.

- Smooth malty grain, rich and lightly sweet... little bready.. roasted and nutty.... hops are present to balance this one out... light citrus and pine...

- Medium bodied... not at all chewy or sticky....

- little filling, robust, and quite drinkable... a meal in a bomber! Worth the have, and certainly fantastic for a new brewery!
