A smooth and sturdy stout, made with 10% rolled oats, roasted barley and chocolate malt. The name is referential to the founders of Thebes, warriors who sprang from the earth when the teeth of a slain dragon were sown by Cadmus. Bittered with Chinook; finished with Cascade and Columbus hops.

Dark colored with a minimal head. Has a nice body without being overly thick. Smooth and dry with hints of dark chocolate, oats, and a bit of coffee. The thing that catches me with this beer is that the hops are well pronounced on the back end, and they tend to dry it out a bit. If hops arenít your thing, this isnít for you, but I find it to be an interesting version of the style.

Vanilla and chocolate on the nose, very smooth and sweet aroma. Pours dark brown. Very smooth flavor, chocolate, a little vanilla, with some coffee flavors. Excellent beer!

On Tap. Deep black with a thin dark brown head. Aroma is of roasted malt and chocolate. Espresso and chocolate notes give the beer a smooth fantastic flavor. There is a little bitterness, but just enough. The hops in fact prevent the malt from being overpowering. I believe the Dragonstooth Stout is a terrific well-balanced stout, as long as it is not served too cold!

Pours a dark brown with dense tan head. Roasted malt, hops, chocolate and roasted coffee. The roasted coffee part stands out quite a bit. I thought the mouthfeel was slightly thin, with medium carbonation.

on tap-pours a light brown head that laces and black color. Aroma is dark malt-chocolate/molasses, roasty. Taste is dark malt-chocolate/molasses, roasty, some coffee. Less hops and slightly fuller body than the porter[as the styles usually indicate]. Still nice even though not my style.

Pours a VERY foamy dark tan head. Lots of bubbles. Dark brown color in body, nearly black with zero light passing through it. Lots of carbonation. Aroma of malts and grains. Perhaps even a little bready? Tastes great (and I doubt its less filling!!). Lots of roasted malts in the flavor, but not bitter or grainy to the taste. . Bitterness on the palate in the aftertaste, but not overwhelmingly bitter. Too bad this beer isnít available here in California.

UPDATED: JAN 12, 2008 Draft at Elysian Fields in Seattle. I had this beer and the porter, and this was definitely the better of the two. Flavours included chocolate and caramel, and there was a pleasant bitterness. I could drink this all night long!

Pours opaque and dark black with a medium-sized, dark tan head that subsides somewhat to a thin, tan layer of tight bubbles that lace the glass only somewhat. The aroma is lovely: a huge combo of thick, vinous malts, dark fruit, hints of rich, dark chocolate, and a touch of fruity, citrusy hops. The flavor starts malty and sweet with a touch of chocolate-covered fruit and hops. The middle of the tongue picks up notes of rich espresso and dark chocolate along with pungent, green hops. The finish is full in body and extra-full in flavor: roasted grains, very bitter hops, raisins, prunes, molasses, vanilla, and chocolate. The mouthful is quite creamy and smooth. It is full in body with hints of oiliness combined with a touch of acidic, carbon dioxide bite (which builds to a peak around the middle of the tongue). Overall, this knocked me out - a great brew - quite a find.

Bottle: Pours black with a medium sized creamy tan head. Sort of a honey comb type lacing. Nose is mild of roasted malt and mocha. Tastes rich with roast and bittersweet and dark chocolate. Some additional bitters too. Silky smooth, this is a refreshingly easy to sip on and really released the flavors well as the glass warmed.
