growler thanks to my buddy curt..... pours a dark brown close to black with a quickly fading bubbly head..... aroma roasted malt, chocolate, and oats.....flavors remained consistent with the nose. quite roasty with an abundance of chocolate. generally sweet. decent mouthfeel but lacked a little carbonation due to the growler being held for too long.

3 oz. pour, on tap at the brewhouse. This was the fifth of 9 Fitger’s beers I tried on 4-4-08. Roasted malt aroma features coffee and mocha scents. Pours dark brown. Coffee and dark chocolate flavors with a slowly developing sweetness. Light, roasted aftertaste. Medium body. Soft in the palate. Easy to drink. Big Boat is a pleasant oatmeal stout, but it came far from blowing me away.

On tap at the 2007 GTMW: Pours an opaque black with a frothy, well-lacing light brown head. Aroma of sweet mapley caramel with some earthy dark chocolate. Body starts sweet and fairly rich with good dark caramel and chocolate maltiness along with molasses. A very nice oatmeal stout.

Lots of roast in the nose. Black with a big ol’ soft brown head on top. Lots of roasted malt with a drying and slightly acidic feel. Feels a lot like black coffee instead of beer.

Draft at the Brewhouse. Got some faint flavors of coffee -- my wife got more of the intended flavors than I did. I don’t think my palate is ready for sweet stouts yet. Definitely one of the better beers I had at Fitgers -- I slightly preferred the Tug Boat Irish Stout -- I think I prefer dry stout in general.

sample at pub. Dark brown with a nice creamy dark tan head. Very nice coffee and chocolate taste. Nice mouthfeel. A touch smoother and this would be a winner.

Had this one on draught as part of the sampler flight at the brewery in Duluth, Minnesota. Opaque, oily brown pour with a thick, light brouwn head, strong bitter cocoa in the nose, with soy sauce, more bitter chocolate throughout. Finished alcoholic but very smooth. Very good!

Skyview (5360) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 27, 2007
On tap at the Fitgers Brewhouse in Duluth, MN, pours a dark, near opaque brown brew with a thick and creamy tan head that slowly dissolves. Tan head stays with the beer. Aroma of dark chocolate, roasted caramel malt, some coffee and flowery hops. Taste is smooth, creamy, lightly carbonated, and heavy body. Finish is smooth, and little hop bitterness.
