Not one of the sweeter ones, which is nice. It has dark/roasty malts, dark fruit and molasses. There is an espresso coffee bitterness throughout, very nice. Dry-ish, light mouthfeel that does finish very nicely.

22 ounce bomber with ?a couple years of age on it.
Black pour with two fingers creamy mocha head.
Nose gives molasses, roasty dark malt, coffee/coffee grounds, dark fruit, touch of licorice.
Taste chocolate malt creamy sweetness, sweetened coffee, molasses, black licorice, followed by a hop and coffee bitterness on the swallow.
Creamy medium full mouthfeel - feels bigger than 7% though not boozy - moderate carbonation. Lingering coffee/espresso bitterness.

On tap. Poured an opaque, jet-black color with a light brown head of foam. It smelled of coffee, oats, chocolate and toffee. Rich, roasted malt presence with coffee and dark chocolate. Nice bitterness.

The beer is black with a thin foamy tan head. A nice roasty aroma with a mixture of dark fruits and chocolate. The beer has a slight sweetness to it but a roasty almost burnt bitter flavor to it. The beer is very creamy and smooth.

This one pours a dark black, with a small head and lots of lacing.

This smells lightly smokey, with dark fruit, sweet chocolate, and tobacco.

This sits a little bit too heavily on the palate, but otherwise, it's an excellent stout. It's pretty complex, with lots of dark fruits and lightly sweet smokiness. There's milk chocolate and earthy tobacco too.

This is creamy and just a hint syrupy, with a good level of carbonation.

This seems to be by far the best beer that Pike makes.

Had on tap at the brewery. Pours opaque, black in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is milk chocolate, roasted coffee, cream, and barky hops. Sweet with roasty bitterness, medium heavy bodied, with low carbonation. Makes for an impressive and tasty stout. I will get this again.

Matte black with a creamy tan blanket that's almost like it's on nitro.

Smell is sharp cola with roastiness and molasses.

Taste is salty roasted malt with hoppy bitter cocoa and a frothy body with a semi-dry finish.

Bomber to snifter, the appearance was a dark black color with a sustaining finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a mild pace. Lace was strewn about in a messy way.
The aroma had some milk chocolate, dark chocolate sweetness, black licorice/anise sort of thing going on, mild roasty coffee bean components, touch of earth/dirt and ended with a little bit of dark chocolate bitterness.
The flavor took all of the previously mentioned aromatics and guided diligently into themselves - sweet to bitter to roasty. Gentle roasty subsiding slight coffee to anise and dark chocolate aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping sort of quality about it. Roasty harshness was slightly abrasive to my tongue, but there was a pinch of smoothness from the chocolate malts. ABV felt appropriate. Carbonation felt good.
Overall, pretty nicely done foreign/export stout that I would have again.

Pours a dark brown, bordering on black in color with a caramel colored head that leaves a lot of lacing on your glass. Hints of coffee and chocolate hit your nose. Upon tasting, you get the coffee, chocolate and something smoky and sweet, Maybe licorice and some kind of smoked wood. I had higher hopes for this beer.

Dark, almost black with a slightly lighter head. Aroma is mainly chocolate & coffee. Taste is salty, bitter & a hint of sweet& the flavor is dark roasted coffee. It smells sweeter than it tastes. Chocolate aftertaste. Feels slightly thinner than it looks. At 7% it's not very stout for an an extra stout very good.

Not as bitter as some comments say
Coffee taste isn't overwhelming

Very dark brown, approaching black, with a huge and lasting mocha-colored head that leaves heavy lacing.

Big, roasty aroma with an intense chocolate and coffee profile. A hint of dark fruit is present in the coffee.

The taste expresses way more bitterness in the chocolate, coffee and hops. Still very roasty, with just a kiss of sweetness, some sort of smoking wood in the aftertaste (hickory?) and a pretty dry finish.

Light to medium bodied, and just mildly creamy.

A PNW stout? A little too bitter to my taste at first, but it grew on me. Very solid beer.

Pours dark, almost black but a slight caramel hint like very dark soda. Thick khaki head. Aroma is malt, chocolate, some tobacco.

Taste is roasty malts, chocolate, a somewhat cloying sweetness like bubblegum soaked in the vat overnight. A burnt ash comes in halfway and there's a dry finish. Apparently true to style. Aftertaste not nearly as nice as the beginning in my opinion. Burnt porter feel crossed with roast, increasingly bitter as it warms.
