On tap @ the brewery and on nitro. Pitch black with a small tan head. Aroma is chocolate, roasted grains and a light hop scent. Sweet malty flavor with a fair amount of hop bitterness to balance it out. Medium to full bodied, with a smooth creamy mouth feel due to the nitro. Great fresh beer that I would get again and again.

Sampled in Seward. A really really tasty beverage. Pours dark dark black with a think lacey brown head. This beer drinks really smooth with a traditional dark stout bite at the end. Overall a really well made and tasty stout.

Growler from the Brewhouse. Pours a dark black with a tight tan head. A sweet malt and roasted nose. The taste is similar with hints of coffee. Medium-full body with a very smooth mouthfeel. A bit of sweet chocolate bitterness on the lingering finish. A good brew and easy drinker overall.

Draft at Jake’s in Steilacoom. Pours absolutely jet black with a thick and creamy tan mousse up top. Not much lace. Nice big chocolate nose, very roasty, a little bit of anise there but not much. Gorgeous silky, creamy, thick mouthfeel, just a huge sedative of a stout. Nice big roasty body, soft sweetness from the oatmeal and then some chocolate notes. Unfortunately it’s amazingly hot and boozy for 5.4%; bits of acetic vodka creep through right near the end there.

2008-09-06. Black body with a modest tan/brown head. (4+) Flavour has sweet malty base with roasty bitterness that escalates in the finish where a pleasant roast mingles with just a kiss of anise undertones, and hints of alcohol. (7+) Aroma of mocha roast is rather nice. (7+) Average plus palate is smooth. (3+) On tap at the brewpub.

On draft at The Depot in Walla Walla, Washington this came in a pint glass and was a dark brown with tan head and good lacing. Big maltly nose of roasted odors, and chocolate. Smooth and rich mouthfeel. Favor of chocolate and coffee, and a nice bitter finish. Very nice.
