Fatehunter (1076) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Poured out of a 22oz bottle into a tulip glass. A dark brown, opaque pour with a light tan inch of head. Smells like coffee, caramel, burnt malt and molasses. Wow. Amazing. Tastes of burnt malt, coffee and slightly sweet malt at the end. Very good. Light to medium body. Almost non-existent carbonation. Easily a daily drinker. Excellent flavor and too drinkable. The smell is really the star here. Incredible.

Bomber from Portland via the lake beer fridge. Pours a rich black with thinish head. Some lacing. Nose is mild; initial taste screams coffee and chocolate...very tasty. Smooth / full mouthfeel. Wish we could get this here.

I love this beer and this brewery. It’s a dark black roasty malt with a great coffee nose. I don’t taste seven grains, just stout and coffee, I’m sure I can survive on it though!

ACHops (590) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Growler from Chuck’s 85th. Pours deep inky brown with medium mocha head that fades quickly and laces well. Aroma is big espresso notes, lightly sweet dark chocolate malt, with dry oaky flavors as well. Taste is rich super smooth roasty chocolate malt, mild but noticeable bitterness, and sweet nutty espresso that really jumps out on the finish. Perfectly balanced, amazingly rich and flavorful particularly for such a low abv. One of the best stouts around; and organic as well. Really impressive.

On tap. Pours a very dark brown with light tan head. Aromas of coffee, fruit and malts. Flavors are similar but stronger with define black coffee notes and a slight sour fruitiness. Nice.

Had on draft at the brewery. The aroma is big dark chocolate notes, coffee. The flavor is chocolate, coffee, roasted malts. The coffee in this is very clean and does not have any green pepper notes.
