COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They don’t call it black gold for nothing. This full bodied oatmeal stout is smooth and creamy. Even if you don’t consider yourself a dark beer drinker, be sure to ask for a taste. "Fuel for your next Alaskan adventure".

The Moose’s Tooth Brewery serves the best pizza in town, along with some of the most amazing beer. Simply put - this is the best stout that I have ever had, anywhere.

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.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2010 On tap at the Mooses Tooth. A consistently great stout. Roasty rich aroma. Totally black in appearance with a light brown head. The taste is malty and smooth with a slight coffee and chocolate roasted flavor. Superb!

(Draft: Moose’s 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 William’s Porter, it’s nearly black and opaque, but dark brown at the edges; Light tan head is small on the pour and fades to nothing

12-ounce bottle. Huge medium-tan surging head, nitro-like. Modest toasty malt on the nose, but a nice rish combination of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt, and a bit of licorice. Very creamy mouthfeel. Would gladly drink again.
