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

(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, itís 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 itís not my favorite type of stout, Iím 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.

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.

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!

This stout has some nice coffee and chocolate flavors that complement its velvety tongue feel.

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.

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.
