On tap at the Brewhouse. Very dark beer with a foamy beige head and a nose of chocolate and roasted grains. Very chocolatey malt sweetness with some vanilla, oak and red wine tannins in the finish. Very nice beer from a very nice little place. Quite delicious.

(Draft: Café Amsterdam in Anchorage, AK) Final beer of the day at this wonderful little strip mall café, but it’s a Glacier Brewhouse beer, and my experience with their other beers has been less than stellar. But this is an oatmeal stout, so I have higher hopes. The flavor is roasty, mildly sweet, and moderately bitter, but becomes fairly chocolaty as the beer warms up. Moderately roasty nose, but it’s not very aromatic at all unless you swirl like crazy, and then it smells very chocolaty like Yoohoo! Medium-to-full body. Very dark ruddy brown shows a bit of slight translucence. The tan head gradually fades to a rim. Without a doubt, the best Glacier Brewhouse beer I’ve had, and by a wide margin.

On draft at the brewpub 7/6/05: Dark black with a creamy consistency. An OK roasted malt and toasted nut topping on an ice cream feel. Very drinkable.

Dark, almost black ruby with great head and lacing. Rich malty aroma. Lots of chocolate in the flavor and the oatmeal is noticeable. Almost tastes barrel aged, but this one isn’t. Very good.
Earlier Rating: 8/6/2002 Total Score: 4.8
This was an amazing beer from an impressive brewpub. I saved this for my last beer of the meal to go with my apple tart. Pitch black with a good head. The first thing that hits the nose is hazlenut cappuccino, wood and bourbon. The flavor starts off with more cappuccino with a hint of vanilla, wood and bourbon. Actually the bourbon is more than a hint. It meshed amazingly well with the dessert. The richness of the beer makes it best in small amounts, but the half-pint I ordered was just about perfect. One of the best beers I’ve ever had.

Had on tap at the Resurrection Roadhouse in Seward, Alaska. Dark purple to opaque black appearance with a thick, creamy, mocha colored head. Coffee accented aroma with some licorice undertones. Bittersweet chocolate flavor permeates thoughout with a bit of hoppyh back end bite. Delicous to say the least. Creamy, silky mouthfeel. Looking forward to visiting this brewpub later this week in Anchorage.

Classic appearance: dark black with a light tan head. Very smooth and fluffy mouthfeel ... nitro had a lot to do with that, of course. Very nicely roasted and toasted, though I wondered how much more it would be without the aroma-robbing nitrogen. Milky sweetness with a subtle sourness undertone. Slightest hint of baker’s chocolate as well. Balancing bitterness. Rather tasty stout.
