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."

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.

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.

Dark brown color with a coffee, nutty smell. A little dry for my taste, but a clean smooth finish sip after sip. I had to have two pints to make sure.

BBB63 (5966) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2005
GABF 2005: Opaque with small but lasting head. The aroma has notes of coffee, smoky and crystal malts, chocolate, walnut, and grassy hops. The taste starts with a bittersweet Crème Brûlée flavor with a snap of bitter hop and subdued pepper as well. The feel is smooth and ashy dry finishing. A solid offering in the style.

(Draft: Laurelwood Public House in Portland, OR) This is a very dry and roasty stout, quite bitter, minimally sweet, lots of coffee flavor, modest chocolate, some yeasty characteristics. The nose is similar, very dry and roasty, with strong coffee notes. Full bodied, but with the light sweetness, it’s very dry on the palate. Black and fully opaque, even against the sunlight. The tan head settles to a ring, but leaves patchy lacing on the glass. If you like dry stouts, this is a solid one, but since it’s not my favorite type of stout, I’m only able to acknowledge the fine caliber of the crafting while being less enthusiastic about my enjoyment.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Black with dark brown head and spots of lace. Bitter cocoa in the nose with roast malts and some fruits. Bitter coffee flavors with some bitter hops and chocolate. Finishes bitter. Thick and chewy beer that is cloying and coating in the mouth.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 11, 2005
Creamy tan head on a black/brown body. Aroma is chocalte and some roasted malts. Thin and oily on the mouth with average amount of flavour. Pretty simple stout.

On tap at the brewpub

Near black colour but with mahogany highlights. Aroma is of sweet chocolatey malts. The flavour is also sweet, the overall character rather lightish - mainly chocolate and sugar. Kind of like if you brewed a Foreign Stout specifically to serve as a dessert.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2005 Sampled at the public house. Perfect. Deep brown pour, with a toasted tan head. Nice aroma of roasted coffee, unsweetened chocolate and cookie dough. Flavor is the same as aroma but with a pleasant creamy/bitter finish. This is an all around good stout. I can see why Laurelwood is a winner at so many beer competitions!
