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."

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Roasty sweet nose. Black as night. Appealing roast and chocolate in the flavor. Very smooth and creamy in texture. Creamy finish. This is a great stout.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 14, 2004
Tap@Larelwood. Really ashy, burnt stout. Coffee rind, with a touch of soy, medium bitterness, pretty tasty.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 10, 2004
Black color with dark brown head & no lacing. The aroma has notes of muskat grapes, fresh hops & a good balance of roasted malts. The flavor is very well balanced too with a docus on the special B. Finishes smooth. Very good stout.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 10, 2004
Pours a black color with a tan head. Roasty coffee aroma with hints of chocolate. This stout was very smooth on the palate with a great chocolate flavor that lingered on and on. Great sweet stout.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 16, 2004
Very rich flavors--coffee, mocha, with a smoke quality as well. Long, bitter smoke finish, roasted but losing some of its mocha qualities. Impenetrable darkness, good caramel lacing, above average palate (creamy) and reasonably dense. (on tap at the Laurelwood Public House)

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 9, 2004
GABF '03. Dark black with tan head. Light in taste without any bitterness I like in a stout. Average at best.

microdyke (360) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 10, 2003
A deep black with some brown running through in the light. The aroma is of roasted. The flavor is nicely roasted and some smokiness. A good medium body and a dry finish.

3fourths (8017) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2003 Dry caramel aroma. Very rich, almost resembles an imperial. Quite sweet. some vinegar and alcoholic qualities, mixed with pine, and ending with a sharp and chalchy finish.

AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 1, 2003
Adequate, but not exceptional. A black body, tan head, slight malt aroma, but lots of roasted malt flavor, but a little one dimensional, as no coffee or chocolate like notes are present to my taste.
