More stoutly than a Guinness
Smooth but not too smooth
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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

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.

Comes in thick and black. Tan head, 1". Aroma has some burnt notes providing coffee, anise, chocolate malt, roast.

Taste is plenty well hopped, still hitting those licorice notes, slightly sweet, more bitter. Chocolate malt comes out more and more as it warms. Relatively dry finish. Coats the mouth. Don't really like the bomber format for this, but it is well done, even if it is cost prohibitive in such a format.

On tap at the Pike Place market

A: Black with some ruby highlights. A tan one finger head that lingered.

S: Semi sweet chocolate, anise, coffee, cocoa. A light bitterness pervades.

T: Follows nose with a charred chocolate and coffee opening. Light bitter coffee interlaces with caramel. Sweet, robust.

M: Medium with medium to heavy,chewy carbonation.

O: A great example of the style. A terrific sipper along with a chocolate chip cookie.

Rich aroma of dark chocolate, roasted coffee and malts. Good length, bitterness rounded by the sweetness. More dark(er) chocolate and coffee on the palate, with slight caramel. Sweet finish evolves toward more bitter chocolate linger... almost like chocolate with slight charcoal fire finish. Overall, great example of the style. Worth seeking out to try.

This is very straight stout with roasty taste, a bit of coffee and chocolate. The way i like it. Can feel alcohol but not too much. The good one.
