COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They donít call it black gold for nothing. This full bodied oatmeal stout is smooth and creamy. Even if you donít consider yourself a dark beer drinker, be sure to ask for a taste. "Fuel for your next Alaskan adventure".

Had on tap at the brewpub. Dark, licorice-like appearance, thick mocha colored head with good lacing. Bittersweet chocolate flavor with some sweet licorice accents. Thick, silky mouthfeel. All in all, a very good brewpub stout.

(Draft: Mooseís Tooth Brewing Company in Anchorage AK) Strongly dark roasted, fairly bitter flavor overpowers the sweet, moderate oatmeal flavor initially, but the oatmeal hangs in and maintains solid presence, finishing strong; The nose is oatmeal and dark roasted maltiness, moderately sweet, with some alcohol creeping in; Full bodied and a little chewy; Like their Prince Williamís Porter, itís nearly black and opaque, but dark brown at the edges; Light tan head is small on the pour and fades to nothing

Black Gold from the far north, the boys at Mooses Tooth have done it again, if you like a thick creamy oatmeal stout you will like this one. Chocolate and coffee with a bit of butterscotch and oak flavor to boot.

I had the bourbon barrel aged Ripped Pipline Stout on tap at the 2004 Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival. I don't want to get into the "new beer" v. "same beer in a barrel" discussion so I'll just rate it here. You can really taste the barrel on this one. Black beer with a foam ring for a head and a bourbon barrel nose. Butterscotch, oak, bourbon with some coffee bitterness in the finish. A great sipping beer although the bourbon dominates the stout.
