3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"Black Gold Stout" on tap at the brewery: Very dark and black. Soft, "liquidy" light-tan head. Wonderful milkshake-like texture really caught me off guard. Big notes of chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Roasty and slightly burnt, with a small hint of smoke. Milky-sweet.

Tap@The Pilsner Room, Portland. Pretty decent stout, roasty with some hammy bacon sort of flavour, a bit smoky i guess, good length, nice roasty malts.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Exploding coffee flavors in the palate. Also some nice burnt flavor. Smokey. Needs to make its mind up about being a dry stout or not. Big creamy head, but a weak body. I liked it.

3/19/04 Pilsner Room at Riverplace
Poured a very black, totally opaque, with a thick creamy tan nitro head that hung on all the way to the bottom of the glass. Nice mild roast malt aroma, with flavor to match, smooth coffee front to back with a very easy finish. A good tasting and very drinkable stout, i wish they bottled this.

Tasted at the brewery. Almost pitch black with a light tan nitro head. A flavor of French Roast coffee and pine. Hearty and smooth. Huge clinging head with
tons of lacing. Soft milky aroma. Very sharp alcohol in the aroma as well.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nitro @ Brewery - Nicely balanced, just what I like in a stout. Creamy and rich dark chocolate with some roasted coffee notes. Bittersweet and dry in the finish. Enjoyable.
