COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Fatehunter (1951) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 2, 2012
Poured into a pint glass; black with a thick inch of tan head. Smells like chocolate, roasted malt and more chocolate. Great balance. On the tongue: bitter chocolate, toasted malt, grippingly bitter with a caramel aftertaste. Soft and creamy body with light carbonation... quite perfect. Overall a simply amazing drink. Drinks like milk, only better for you.

Grzesiek79 (3686) - Radom, POLAND - DEC 20, 2015
Piwo czarne geste i nieprzezroczyste. Piana malenka ale bardzo ciemna brazowa. Zapach smoly rumu i czekolady goracej do picia. W smaku zbyt slodkie sporo nut palonych i czekolady ale mlecznej. Piwo przy 7% alc bardzo ciezkie, degustacyjne. Koncowka niczym tiramisu posypane spora dawka cukru

Sterke rogge geur. Grappig. Ziet er goed zwart uit. Maar 6.8%, weinig voor een stout. Smaakt ook naar die rogge. Best lekker, mag ook wel voor 14e per fles.

Botella 66 cl tomada en el kraken en septiembre 2015. Color negro con espuma oscura. Lote 00552 hasta 10..2016. (r300). Aromas y sabores maltosos tostados con cacaos y bastantes especias. Cuerpo medio de 6.8 vol que se bebe bien. No estaría mal algo más de densidad. Buena.
