3fourths (8639) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2011 2003 version. Close to pitch black with a brown head. Very fresh and sweet aroma of chocolate, maple and sweet cherries and mint. Plum, cherries and smoked strawberries in the nose. Syrup texture throughout, with an Imperial-like dark fruit and nut quality. Very smooth, with bitter and roasted chocolate finish.

incredible in every way a giant aroma and dripping in stout greatness....NOT!!! tastes like a weak porter with a slightly more roasted aroma

AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 5, 2002
Very smooth black and creamy (nitro), with malty nose and a nice rather mellow roasted flavor, and some sweetness to balance it. Quite good.

Tap. Black color. Some cherry and alcohol in the aroma. A good rich body. I also had the Nitro version of the same beer which was just smoother and creamy.

willybrew99 (1) - USA - MAR 7, 2002 does not count
Just the kindest of complexities moreso pronounced in the nitro version. Amazing nose, balance and full body.

gwfrankpsu (231) - McKinleyville, California, USA - DEC 18, 2001
Very drinkable stout, a little sweet, but not overly so. The longer it sits the better it gets.

Not has heavy as other Oregon stouts. A sweet, robust flavor and subtle hop profile.
