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.

this was served ala nitro at the portland airport, and reminded me a lot of rasputin sereved the same way. maybe a touch below in overall flavor and complexity, but it was big on flavor, big on chocolate, and big on hops. huge aroma. roasted coffee in there too. very good stout. Ironically not as awesome CO2 or Nitro at Alamada. Hmmm..."

Aroma of light roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, liquorice notes, hops, hint of dark fruit. Flavour is roasty and medium sweet, with a hoppy and coffee bitter finish. Nice soft and sweet Stout.

Idiosynkrasie (3927) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 25, 2014
650ml bottle. Pitch black colour with average, thick, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, tan head. Roasty, spicy, dark malty aroma, notes of dark chocolate, a peppery onion touch. Taste is chocolately dark malty, dark and milk chocolate, cocoa powder, minimally roasty, moderate sweetness, cautious floral hoppy overtones, some hop bitterness throughout; nuttily (hazelnut) finish. Very clean, diversified but balanced.

stevoj (2242) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Pours with nice thick, velvety beige head, lasts a pretty long time too. Normal dark / roast malt aroma, taste is rather full and strong though. A touch of molasses sweetness mellows out the bitterness. Easy drinker.

Color negro con reflejos caoba y espuma beige muy escasa. Aromas de regaliz, melaza y frutos rojos. Cuerpo ligero, con inicio dulce y afrutado, con toque de la melaza, que pasa a un sabor tostado y de amargor muy suave. Muy rica.

Bottle, shared with Robbie post-RBAG 2014. Very dark brown, frothy tan head. Sweet and roasty, bitter chocolate, nice body. A light lactic acidity lifts the finish, very drinkable.
