COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"As Big as it is Smooth." A black, robust, full-bodied stout with a creamy, bittersweet chocolate-like, roasted coffee palate. We pour our stout with a "nitro-tap" to accentuate the malt and create a thick long lasting head and creamy body. This stout was named in honor of the Wild Hog in all of us. 37 IBU.

I had this on draft (nitro) at Maui brewing. Very smooth, aroma of coffee/chocolate, the flavor was mild, it was almost like a "session stout". At 6%, it’s very drinkable

Nitro at the Brewpub. Nice dark pour with nice tight bubble head and lacing. Aromas were somewhat weak but the coffee/chocolate was all there. Flavors didn’t really come through for me. A little muddled and not like the aromas. I was under impressed

Faint aroma; can hardly smell anything. Mostly opaque body; reddish black with a tan head. Some lace. Oatmeal stout through and through. They nailed the style. Some lactose. Bittersweet chocolate. Fibrant flavors for a nitro. Well done.

Draught at the brewery. Beer is very dark brown, nearly opaque with a large, creamy, light brown, mostly lasting head.<P> The aroma is shy. Malty with a trace of molasses, light notes of coffee, chocolate, roasted grain; Hoppy with a moderate floral note; Yeasty with a trace of basement; Moderate miscellaneous note of dried stonefruits and currents.<P> The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly-to-moderately bitter with a long, moderately bittersweet finish.<P> The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is soft.

I drank several of these during our Feb. 2006 visit. This was a good and balanced stout with a great body. It reminded me somewhat of Guiness Extra, but a little sweeter. I drink this one on the mainland if available.

Jayb0 (1022) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2005
The six beers I had here all had a house character of a very smooth, creamy palate that works in some beers an not iin others. It works well in this one, the best of the bunch. Brown black, nice dense lasting head. Good roasted flavors.

JMerritt (1786) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2004
Rated on Maui during my honeymoon! Very dark black. Head lasted for nearly 1 hour until I was able to get to this sampler. Lacing is excellent and thick. Very sweet roasty aroma, like burnt sugar. Very creamy and thick mouthfeel. Light finish, however, as this beer seems to peter out quickly.

Another Maui vacation beer. Opaque,black with a frothy brown head. Aroma/flavor of a dominate coffee(roast) mixed with chocolate. Body was creamy typical of nitrogen infused. Sweet finish.
