Malty chocolate aroma with whiffs of coffee. Flavour is chocolaty, and sweetish. A dense thick beer that goes well with the desserts served in the pub.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Laurelwood Publick House in Portland, OR. 5 ounce sample. Very roasted, assertive, chocolate and coffee-like nose. Plenty of coffee present. Very pleasant aroma. Opaque black color with a brown/tan frothy head with gorgeous lacing. Roasted, slightly bitter hoppy start, turning very rich and coffee-like later on. Some sweet chocolates are also present, which create a chocolate covered coffee bean flavor. One of the best beers I’ve had on this trip to the PNW.

This was killer. A very well made stout, with lots of deep dark chocolate flavors, rich coffee and a bitter bite with some rich nuttiness. This was dark and opaque with a rich creamy brown head. This is a stout drinkers stout.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black beer, thick dense tan head. Intense chocolate and cocoa aroma. Flavour is similar up front with a bit of spicy herbal flavour in the middle. Creamy body. Finishes with less roast than the porter had. Lingering sweet chocolate finish. Nice stout.
