YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - APR 21, 2008
Not exceptional but a good, solid stout. Almost black with a deep brown head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, raisins, toasted almonds. Flavor shared the same components. Started sweet and ended with a coffee bitterness. Nice.

VinegarStroke (319) - Napa, California, USA - MAR 24, 2015
Bottle: deep brown, light head and moderate lace. Very dark roasted nose with coffee, chocolate and brown source. The aroma is good but verging on bringing burnt or too heavily roasted. Dry to off dry, not sour and low bitterness. The palate is creamy but lacking in depth & complexity of flavor.

SG111 (410) - New York, USA - FEB 22, 2015
On tap in SF. Pours black with a nice clean even ring of a tan head. Aroma is roasted malts and heavy on the chocolate. Flavor is similar. Lots of sweet chocolate. Fairly creamy mouthfeel. Very solid.

maneliquor (3391) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 26, 2014
Tap at Mane Liquor. Pours black with a rich tan head leaving nice lacing. Nose is vanilla-esque with mild coffee, plenty of roast, slight dirt and toffee. Taste is very vanilla forward, almost essence but without sweetness dominating before the coffee and heavy roast come through. A note there reminds me of white chocolate. It has a mildly warming heat to finish showing its abv. Not a crazy stout in any way and fairly sweet forward but a solid drop

"it does have a nice flavor and a creamy texture, but calling it an imperial is a bit of a stretch. judged as a straight stout, though, it’s very good. well balanced and flavorful."

tmongoose (1548) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Bomber shared. Poured dark brown to almost black with mocha colored head. Aroma deep and rich roasted dark malts. Hints of chocolate, coffee, licorice and oats. Amazing aroma. This flavor is outstanding deep dark roasted malts heavy body chocolate, licorice, and oats. This beer rivals breakfast stout from founders. Excellent.

mikedR (1492) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - APR 8, 2014
Siper, particularly for such a low ABV. Awesome coffee aroma, followed thru by a roasty flavor with a hint of chocolate. Just a drip of sweetness. Not bitter. Dry finish. Recommended!

June 10th, 2012 - The first Marin beer to really leave a deep, sudsy impression on me was the San Quentin Breakout Stout. No doubt the style itself is responsible. I tend to lean to darker beers when brew shopping. But this Marin stout exhibits a lot of complexity and detail that I didn’t detect in a couple of their other beers, such as their IPA. Lots of oatmeal stout style sweetness hits the nose on the front, and the light earthiness of button mushrooms is also present. What these softer smells belie is a hardy, savory stout in the flavor. Rich contours of barbecue and ham have a strong presence in this beer, with ample notes of bacon and maple, almost like an exaggerated novelty bacon based beer, but without the gimmick and the gross. This is strong, but still speaks the language of beer, and tastes good going it too.
