COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The unique blend of the oats and malts in Alaskan Stout produce a balanced, smooth beer with hints of chocolate, coffee and caramel.

Nice dark black appearance with a thin eggnog colored head - no lacing. Not as syrupy sweet as some sweet stouts and not as much body either - a bit watery. Has some chocolate notes with a bit of caramel sweetness thrown in for good measure. Middle of the road stout.

Aurelius (4312) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2003
A very drinkable stout. Lots of coffee in the mouth and something sprucey and mildly jagged in the hop department. An odd turn in the back palate, a little watery, again the edgy bittering in the back of the palate. Attempts at fruitiness at times, fairly dry. Clear and almost black.

Deep ruby brown hue. Light tan head, leaving behind nice lace. Lightly toasted grain nose. Sweet first, caramel, chocolate, roasted grains, medium bodied, fairly sweet....Finishing acidic, with faint hops in the background. Very drinkable, although perhaps a tad bit thin.

Ernest (6306) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2008 Bottle (BB Mar/2009). Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate, husks), trace hops (flowers), with a light note of vanilla. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery/creamy texture, lively carbonation. Dull aroma. Vegetal/husky. Ehhh.

Aubrey (3444) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 5, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2004 Oily light brown head with a black-as-night body, which wasn't entirely opaque. Peat-like nose. Moderate carbonation with a syrupy texture. Roasted malts were sweet, chocolaty, chewy, toasty, and a little coffee-like. Had a very milk-like sweetness. Some minor wood notes, too. Decent amount of bitterness rounds off the sweetness somewhat, but not quite enough for my blood.

Smells like espresso and brandy. Good body, tastes of chocolate, smoke, and milk. Has a finish that is a bit pale, like old wood smell.

JCW (1275) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 24, 2003
Dark brown no head to speak of. Aroma of brown sugar and malt. Flavor has coffee, chocolate, carmel and hops. Finish is dry and somewhat bitter. Pretty good beer.

Bottle. Black color with a quickly diminished brown head. A sweet smooth stout with a sugar and chocolate flavors. Little of the roasted or burnt notes usually found in stouts. There might be some brown sugar and mocha.

BeerRunner (144) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 1, 2003
I like this stout. It is thick and chewey and tasty and really smooth. The head's a little weak, but the overall appearance is nice. Good aroma, with some nice chocolatey-coffee taste to it.

Good attempt at an Oatmeal Stout but still lacking something. Low head, mildly faint aroma, sweet initial taste but poor finish.
