This is one of those 20+ year old stout recipes that holds up still to this day.

Pours black, tiny bubble brown head 3/4" with above average lace. Aroma dropped those coffee malt notes.

Taste is a substantially Cascade hopped bitterness paired with substantial malt. Despite its high bitterness, it drinks pretty smoothly, like it was a well hopped (C hops) stout made with oatmeal. Underpinnings of char, roast even a tinge of smoke. Pretty cool that this is still a stout in the 12oz format and 6 packs while being under $10.

Poured cola colored brown and had a slight dissipating head. I got a roasted/ chocolate taste. A lighter stout and I tasted alcohol at the finish. Not a bad beer and it was pretty drinkable.

Dark brown/black color with tan head. Nose of roasted coffee with hints of chocolate and burnt nuts. Tastes of dark roast coffee, notes of chocolate, coffee, toasty malts with a touch of oatmeal. I get a slight bitterness from the hops on the finish. Finish lingers like your morning cup of coffee. Overall not the best stout but enjoyable. Reminds me of a scotch ale or porter. Not a bad thing

Bottle to glass, no date that I could find, but it tasted fresh.

Color: blackish brown, somewhat coal-toned. Head minimal, though relatively durable, paler than some stouts. Nose: something reminded me of tree roots (a good thing)... a bit funky, malty, with some typical caramel / cola stout notes. Flavor: exceeded expectations based on looks and nose. A tiny zing at the outset, into a nice balanced stout, with malty caramel and chocolate hints, and what to me is the right touch of hops on top without too much bitter or burnt aspect at any point. Mouthfeel smooth, substantial, solid without too much creaminess or sharpness. Could perhaps be bigger or wilder, but that might come at the cost of a nice solid package . The integrated flavor here is worth returning to.

Was intrigued that it's brewed with water from the Rocky Mountains...

Bottle dated end of November, 2015:
Pours quite black, but rolls out of the bottle easily. Off white to light tan head is present while the beer was in existence, nice and fluffy to foamy.

Nose isn't very strong but bitter roasted notes are obvious. Coffee with a little tea-like herb mixed in.

Taste is fairly bold, with a decent dose of bitterness - especially for a 6% stout. The feel indicates the relative lightness of this beer, but the flavors do not. Bitter medium roast coffee with what appears to be hop bitterness accentuating the roasted malt lightly astringent bitterness. With warmth, the astringent bitterness drops a little, and the flavor seems to add a little nuttiness. Lingering taste is husky grain or nut skin bitterness.

Not usually a fan of big, bitter American stouts, but this one was enjoyable for this tasting. Bold and bitter, to be sure, and for me, I probably have to be in the mood for this to hit again.
