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.

cathcacr (646) - Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2010
Aroma has a toffee aroma to it. Flavor and palate are quite dry, dusty, chalky, with the flavor of unsweetened chocolate. This is one of those stouts that also feels like wood going down into the gut.
