3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at brewery: Very dark in color with a thinnish head. Soft and smooth on the tongue with a mild carbonation. Big roasted and toasted flavors and aromas throughout. Wonderful freshly roasted coffee notes were the highlight in this beer. Finished with a mild bitterness and a sweet aftertaste.

A seasonal at the brewpub in Bend, this is not nearly as heavy as the Obsidian Stout. Poured a dark brown but I could see through it when held up to the light. A wonderful whipped-cream off-white head that lasted and lasted. Nice malty roasted flavors and with such a low alcohol content, this is easy to drink in quantity. A nice summer stout.
