Sarlacc83 (1933) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2016
Tap at the brewery. 4 oz sample. A: Mahogany color, thin creme color head. N: Charcoal, coffee, cocoa, brown sugar, touch of caramel, plenty of earth and loam, plenty of malt, and some pine. T: Bitter and smokey. Lightly sweet. M: Light body, no alcohol, spritzy carbonation. O: Big time dunkel. Lots of roasted flavors here, but I can’t feel like there’s something missing to bring this to the next level. Still, quite good.

Draught at the brewpub. Served with a wedge of lime on the rim. Dark brown color with some red highlights and an off-white head. Toasty and lightly roasty malt, and light corn in the aroma. Light caramel and roasted malt flavors and a clean lager feel. Similar to Negra Modelo bit roastier and dryer. Light body and smooth texture. Pretty nice.

Fred Fest 2009 – Portland, OR
Aroma: Dark roasted coffee aroma with smoke lingering.
Appearance: Light Black in color, Clear with a thin head.
Flavor: Dark roasted flavors with a coffee flavor that was very strong. The smoked malt was there but needed to be stronger.
Palate: Dry coffee finish, with a Good Mouthfeel.
Overall: The beer was very good for the day it was average. This was a tough festival to be average at.
