4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
One of the first Oregon beers I had the honor of tasting. Poured a deep yet clean black-brown body with a medium tan-grey head. Notes of coffee and chewy roasty malts. Warm molasses finish with caramel and dry coffee flavor. A Pacific Northwest classic!

12oz bottle: pitch black with a brown head, aroma of rosted malt flavor of mostly roasted malt. the flavor lacks a little for a stout and not a whole lot depth for taste, goes down smooth and easy to drink

Pours a nice dark with quickly diminishing head. Reminds me immediately of Bellís Kalamazoo Stout, only a little more watery. Coffee and chocolate are there. A pretty good brew.

Bottles from Dirty_Martini and BlackForestCO. Black body with a medium-sized, tan head that fades to a cover. The aroma is lightly sweet with a good dose of molasses and cola, some chocolate and roast in there as well. The flavor is just lightly sweet with dark chocolate, roasted malt, light coffee and a touch of dark fruits. Medium body is moderately carbonated and is a bit thin, especially in the finish. Finish is dry with a lingering presence of bakerís chocolate. Nice.
