A very good, strong tasting Stout. McMenamins does a very fine job with every style they brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: Very black with a thin creme head.
N: Char, roast, big malt profile with tones of chocolate, vanilla, and some nuttiness. Light earth.
T: Substantial sweetness with a light balancing bitterness.
M: Medium body, creamy carb, light alcohol.
O: Much prefer the coffee version of this. It’s decent but I would prefer it drier and more bitter.

Draft pour pint at the McMenamins Crystal Ballroom. O.A.R! O.A.R! O.A.R! Traveling around to see their tour has the fortunate consolation of trying new beers in each city. Brewery owned music venues will hopefully catch on quick. Pours black with a thick tan foam head. Roasted malt aroma. Matching flavor with a rich chocolate finish. Not bad at all. Had myself a brew, relax for a delicate few.

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.
