I love the simple logo, great aroma, taste is excellent, but the aftertaste is a bit offensive. Overall, 16/20, super beer.

Pours from a 22 oz bottle purchased at Market of Choice in Ashland, Oregon this poured black with a very attractive tan head and good lacing. Nose of roasted malts with chocolate and coffee. Medium body and good creamy mouthfeel. Flavor is rich bitter chocolate with some nice hop bitterness that carries over into the finish. A great micro-brewery beer.

Draught at Bier Stein. Dark brown pour with a 2 inch tan head. Roasted aroma with hints of coffee and chocolate. Flavor much the same, pretty typical stout all in all, but I’m glad this place exists in my good old home county of Yamhill.

Bomber. Poured delightfully dark brown with a creamy cap of sticky tan head. The aroma picked up dry, toasted coffee, chocolate, and vanilla with fresh pine and earthy accents.. a touch of sour lactic character too. The flavor found more coffee than anything else at the core.. lesser chocolate and molasses too.. lightly sour milky notes throughout.. a little smoke in there too. Medium-bodied with a little too much carbonation that got in the way.. other than that, well-balanced and tasty.

22 oz bottle from Roths,Keizer.
Dark dark almost black beer with a nice frothy beige head.
Nice toasty,roasted malt aromas,slightly doughy with chocolate accents.
Very pleasing taste all of the above plus a creamy coffee taste..a tinge of hop at th end and in the after taste.
Great palate to this thick and luscious but goes down very well.
Over all a good stout.

Tap @ Belmont Station... Poured black with a khaki head. Roasted malts on the nose. Doughy, creamy, malty. And a good smokiness there too, especially evident in the finish. Mild bitterness, earthy and chalky. Dry finish with a touch of sweetness from the malts.
