Smooth, rich and creamy. Rye malt blends with roast and chocolate malts to create a new and delicious stout profile, balanced with soft and velvety hops. This northwest original is poured using the traditional nitrogen dispensing method, so it may take an extra minute to arrive, but the wait is worth it. The Black Bear won the Gold Medal at the 2003 GABF in the foreign-style stout category. Have a pint of Stout with the Seven-Barrel Burger or the Beer Battered Onion Rings.

From a 22 oz bottle that poured into the glass a solidly black color with a very tiny tan head and almost no lacing. The nose is coffee, chocolate, and aromas of burnt malts. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is dominated by chocolate malts and some light bitterness from the hop. Long bitter finish makes this good to the last drop.

BelgianBeerGal (3866) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2009
2009 22oz bottle in Portland, OR. It was okay but nothing special. Maybe a little thin on the flavour and mouthfeel; dominated by coffee and chocolate but even those seemed light. Maybe the recipe has changed since it won Gold in ’03?

bomber shared by psprings... nearing end of notes from this tasting so little sketchy. Smokey aroma along with some roast. Black body with tan head. Decent roast and coco flavor but these nitrgen fils seem to take away from the flavor for me anyway.

jcr (2576) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 4, 2009
Bomber. Deep brown body below a tan head, mostly lasting. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate with hints of caramel and wood. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes moderately sweet, moderately bitter and lightly acidic. Tastes of roast, milk chocolate with a hint of sugared espresso. Medium to full body with a creamy texture. Moderate carbonation. Alcohol is nowhere to be found. Very nice balance among the roasted malts, the sweetness and the bittering hops.
