Super delicious. At first sip I knew I’d want more. Maybe even some to take home. Pours black w/ tan head. Aroma is roasty,and nutty. Flavor is dark and sweet, with some roastiness and hops to balance the sweetness. Finish is pleasant. Makes you want more. Yum.

Sampler from Boon’s Treasury. Black in color. Light roasted nose. Quite roasty. Fairly bitter with coffee and bitterness. Not much in the way of sweetness. Pretty solid, serviceable "stout" stout.

On tap @ McMenamins Barley Mill. Black in color with a khaki head. Sort of ashy and roasty. A decent bit of coffee and cocoa. Maybe some hints of smoke. The flavor is a little on the bitter side. Sort of a tootsie roll sweetness to it. Plenty of roasted malt and some coffee. Kind of thin.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taster at Roseburg Station Pub. Appearance: finger tan head, brown color, cloudy. Aroma: molasses, roast, light chocolate. Palate: soft carbonation, oily texture, soft carbonation. Taste: sweet chocolate with light roast notes into light pine finish, very earthy peat undertones throughout. Overall, a bit too earthy and molasses-ey for me.

Draft - Dark malts and light roast. Deep mahogany with a decent beige head. Dark roast. Light coffee and some spice. I really quite like this, nice complexity and easy drinking. Well done.

Finally, a decent beer is suppose. Pours dark, passes some light with ruby edges. Nose has coffee. Taste is full of black barley (see Guinness) light licorice, balance. Mouth lingers.

"one of their best, this beer has a highlt roasted chocolate aroma, medium bodied and slightly dry, with nice balance between ample hops and roasted malt, chocolate, and a hint of dark fruit, & nuts. Not quite a standout, but close."
