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.

Roasted malt aroma... Kind of your standard stout, nothing special... Rich in malts, but nothing significant, had better...

Served on tap at Maui Brewing Brewpub. The appearance is a deep cola brown with some nice creamy tan head. The aromas are bittersweet chocolates, medium roasted malts. The flavors are a little tame in intensity. Bittersweet chocolate, medium roast malts. The mouth is medium bodied. Not too bad of a brew.

Dark brown pour with tan head and lace. Toasted malt and coffee on the aroma. Large coffee, roasted malt, and a good malt bitter. Thin and watery with good carbonation. Nice beer.

Aubrey (3431) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Tap: Very dark with a frothy head. Texture was smooth; carbonation was mild. Rich and roasty right off the bat. Earthy, wholesome, oaty. Faint black licorice and vanilla. Pretty tasty, but a tad too sweet for me.

drseamus (103) - Troy, New York, USA - DEC 24, 2007
I had this beer on tap at the brewery while I was on vacation there. It pours Jet black with a healthy mocha head. There is a very strong burnt "fire pit" aroma with roasted and chocolate hints. The flavor is dominated by heavy roasted barley and chocolate tastes. It is exceptionally smooth and finishes fairly sweet. I like this beer a lot and has excellent drinkability.

On tap at the Maui Brewing Company Brew Pub. Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized tan head. Aromas of roast and chocolate. Tastes of roast, chocolate, caramel, and had a light coffee finish.
