4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
"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."

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught in a flight at the Mill Creek brewpub. Pours a very dark brown color. Nose is roasty with some coffee elements. Taste is similar, being lightly bitter and toasty. Ends up being nearly indistinguishable from their Porter, which was disappointing.

Body is lacking, decent overall aroma and flavor but kind of weak in body and substance.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smooth and black. Silky texture like nitro. Med palate. Sweet toasted malt flavor in the middle and finish. Easy drinking at 6.45%. Slight coffee, but just a little to sweet for my palate.

Really palatable stout. Not too dark and totally refreshing. Order as a "Rubinator" mixed with their Ruby fruit beer for full PDX experience.
