COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Brewers favorite, our stout is made with a special blend of six different malts and hops from the Pacific Northwest. We then use nitrogen carbonation to create a rich and creamy brew with a wonderful roasted flavor.

Had this beer every time I have visited the brewpub and its never been off, which is something very special for this brewery. Looks great off nitro, adds a thickness to the mouthfeel I don’t get much from their other beer. Plenty of roast a unsweetened cocoa and all very drinkable. If you only get one beer here make it this one.

Pours a deep almost black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, caramel and honey roasted nuts. Flavor of milk chocolate milkshake, touch of caramel.

On tap.
Pours intense, opaque, light-blocking brown-black. Persistent tan head, dense from nitrogenation, is whisker-thin but leaves an impressive amount of lace on the sides fo the glass. Aroma reveals a big chocolate nose, also plenty of roasted grain, a dose of vanilla and a hint of maple. Flavor is a huge burst of chocolate, vanilla, crunchy sweetness as if this were an oatmeal stout, and a piney hop bitterness that hangs in the background. No gritty carbon/charcoal flavor. Palate is clunky, flat and dead on account of insufficient nitrogenation. Ironically, this would probably have been better on standard carbonated draft. Tastes great; nitro-infusion needs work.

Well, I have mixed feelings about this beer. First of all - I can see this as highly comparable to the now ’obsolete in the US’ Guinness Extra Stout. This is a strong, heavy bitter stout with some noticeable malt sweetness up front, roasted flavors all over, and a serious bitter finish. Very dark and opaque, showing red-brown at the edges. Rich malty and roasty aroma. Here’s the drawback: this beer is nitro’d and sits in the glass, and in the mouth, rather flat and lifeless. With natural carbonation (or even real CO2 rather than N), this would become a lively thick champion of a stout, and a viable alternative to the good old bottle-conditioned Irish brewed Guinness we can’t get anymore in the US. Btw: 2 pints of this stuff put me right to sleep!
