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."

DYCSoccer17 (3327) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 13, 2006
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 Iíve had on this trip to the PNW.

3fourths (8097) - 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.

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.

maxwelldeux (3688) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Draught. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose is quite roasty and dark with some very subtle dark fruit elements underneath. Taste is roasty and slightly bitter, with a very faint hint of sour in there. Good brew.

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.

Fatehunter (1269) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 3, 2013
On tap in PDX near the "E" gates. One finger of tan head on a pitch black body. Aroma is coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Great balance and boldness. The taste is coffee, chocolate and roasted malt with the chocolate really shining through. Texture is silky with low carbonation and heavy body. Overall an excellent beer.

draft at the NW location. more reminiscent of a lighter imp stout than a sweet stout. full bodied and flavorful.

mabel (5805) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2010
[2975-20100626] Tap. Full roast malt aroma has quite a lot of coffee. Dark brown black body with a long-lasting creamy light brown head and thick lacing. Roasty coffee bitterness in the flavour with a long roast finish. Full body. Great bitter stout, quite enjoyable.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Rich chocolate nose, light but full bodied character, super dark and a dark tan head. Rich baking chocolate body, intense with roast, mild in a sneer, just big without trying to prove anything.

Opaque black with thick tan foam. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Full body with bittersweet chocolate, nuts, and burnt toast finishing dry and rosary. Good job here.
