Pike Pub & Brewery - Pike Street XXX Stout

Acquired via trade, somehow one of my first Washington brews, will need to fix that ASAP since they have the best hops in the country!

Look - Pours an oily (not jet) black with a huge foamy mocha head. Lots of sticky lacing, good retention.

Smell - Roasted malt, coffee, piney hops, cola, dark chocolate, molasses, and some fruit (berries, dates, figs).

Taste - On the thinner side, the fruits hit first, hops are there as well, then chocolate and finally roasted coffee.

Mouthfeel - Pine hops surprisingly bitter feel (it is 65 IBU so I guess not that surprising) sits on the palate and the roasted malts and coffee on the middle. Rich medium/heavy body with a dry finish. Great drinkability.

Overall - Solid brew all the way around, the hops add character and uniqueness that made me have to respect it (that and I enjoyed it). Recommend for sure.

Bottle from Total Wine in Tampa. From notes.

A - Poured black with a three finger, thick brown milky-coffee head. Good lace rings, one finger of retention.

S - Coffee, cola, roast.

T - Roasty, dark fruit, lot's of dark sweet malt, quite roasty.

M - Good bitterness, good carbonation, medium creamy body.

O/D - A nice stout. Doesn't do too much to hold onto you, but it seems like a decent example of the style. I have to admit I got a little bored with it after the first glass.

Got a 22 ounce bottle on sale. pours a deep black with a small amount of slightly creamy head that disappears quickly. I pick up the roasted malts on the first smell, second i come up with a little bit of coffee and very small amount of black licorice, not too strong of smell but i am definitely interested. first taste goes down nice and smooth, with a very drinkable flavor, easy to pick out individual malts. roasted and darker caramel malts. the finishing aftertaste blends all the flavors and ends with that sweetness and then hint of coffee. Very solid brew, easy drinking with tons of dark malt flavors.

Poured into a glass mug. The beer pours dark brown and falls into the glass as a jet black liquid with a thick, creamy tan head that dissipates slowly. Some webbed lacing trails behind the retreating head. There are aromas of dark roasted malts, black coffee, chocolate, and a little prune. The beer is very roasty in flavor from the dark malts. I get that coffee and prune from the nose, but also a little licorice. I only get a touch of chocolate there, but it isn't much. The body is full and creamy. The roasty aftertaste lingers in the mouth and the finish is slightly dry. The beer drinks fairly easily due to the fact that it is smooth. This is an excellent beer. If you like your stouts very roasty, this one is for you.

Glass: Snifter
Black in color with thick rocky mocha colored head.
There is a lot of chocolate in the aroma with small hints of coffee.
Coffee and black licorice are very strong flavors in the front of this beer, these turn over to alcohol warming and hops. Full bodied with a thick creamy texture and nice lively carbonation. Lots of alcohol warming and hops bitterness followed by a dry lingering finish.
A great tasting stout that has a nice yet unexpected northwest hoppiness to it.
