COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich Coffee and chocolate flavors dominate this opaque working class Ale. Stout’s extreme popularity among the British factory workers of the 1800’s may qualify it as the fuel for the Industrial Revolution. "By the time you get it, you’re too far out."

Ungstrup (30468) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2008
Draft. A black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt as well as lighter notes of chocolate. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt and chocolate as well as hints of acidity from the roasted malt, leading to a dry bitter and roasted finish.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2008
On tap at the brewpub. Pours translucent blackish brown with a tan head. Aroma and taste of brown sugar and coffee. Dry coffee finish with a touch of pine. Decent, but kind of a letdown after the Tree Hugger Porter.

jake65 (2885) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 22, 2008
Draft at Laurelwood PDX: Very dark brown with a creamy tan head. Thick lacing. Nose is hefty with roastiness, coffee, and chocolate. Thick and creamy. Flavor is not overwhelming, but balanced and soothing. More choco, coffee, and roast. A basic stout in most areas, but done on a very nice level. Too bad I didn’t stumble on this spot until 20 minutes before departure...

Black pour with a tan head. Aroma is interesting for the style. I got notes of licorice with the usual chocolate and coffee associated with the style. My favorite of the flight.
