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.

Aubrey (3453) - 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.

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

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.

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

fordest (2010) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAY 30, 2007
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

JMerritt (1844) - 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.

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.
