It's the best beer there is, nothing compeers. The taste is unbelievable and you drink it pitcher after pitcher after pitcher. If you like dark beer this is the best.

My favorite beer ever. There is nothing that this beer wants for. The most perfect thing I’ve ever tasted

Comes out of the tap an opaque chocolaty sable with a thick, fine-bubbled tan head that sticks around a while and leaves some heavy lacing. Rich, smoky, chocolaty aroma has undertone of quality coffee and hint of licorice. Flavor fills the mouth with fine roast coffee, chocolate, molasses and even hoppy tones as well as a licorice hint. Thick, smooth, oily texture has some fizz and leaves behind a nice smoky tingle.

Well, you can say just about whatever you want about Terminator--there’s no ’recipe’ per se. Instead, the dozen or so brewers at McMenamins’ pubs get to put whatever spin on it they like. We all have a beer that ’turned’ us, though, and this is mine. It was the mid-80s and I was not yet 21 (corrupt barkeep). Back then, they called it a virtue that the beers had batch-to-batch variability, something I couldn’t imagine the Bud boys saying. And going from Bud to this--mind boggling. Plus, points should be given for the name, which is among the coolest beer names on earth.

22 0z bomber from McMenamins pub. Almost black in color, average head, a little lace. Chocolate, coffee, caramel malty aroma with just a slight bit of roastiness. It tastes just like it smells. It is sweet, tastey and divine. Medium bodied. Could use a tad bit more carbonation. My only complaint is that it actually tastes more like a Porter than a Stout. It doesn’t have the typical Stout ’oomph’ finish and aftertaste.However if you can forget that, It is an awesome brew and I am rating it totally for enjoyment, not for style. And man I ENJOYED this, the first glass tasted wonderful with my Greek Gyro, and it tasted just as good when i had the 2nd glass by itself hour later. Very very enjoyable brew!

I find mcmenamin’s brew to be quite excellent regardless of the style, and this stout is no exception. Remarkably heavy and strong on malts, yet still enough hops. This beer terminated me

This is a wonderful complex stout, the chocolate and coffee make this a perfect drink by the fire on the patio on an October evening at the Kennedy School. Had this in October 2001, can’t wait for April 2002 to have it again.

One of my favorite stouts. Poured a dark, creamy blackish brown. First flavor was chocolate, but this gave way to the thick rich malt flavor. Thick as pea soup, it was like drinking liquid bread. Warms you to the marrow, and is sweet and bitter.

This is one of my favorite stouts of all time. Since I have moved away from Portland I often long for a nice pint of Terminator Stout. If you like dark beers, this is a must try.
