3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A solid black appearance with a moderate tan head. The aroma is chocolate, cookies, and some coffee. The flavor contains some chocolate, oatmeal raisin cookies. The palate is a bit thin and the finish is sweet. Overall a decent stout.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle thanks to timmcd64: Pours a mostly opaque with dark mahogany edges. Aroma of toasted dark caramel malts with some bready doughy character and milk chocolate. Body starts with a decent dark caramel malty sweetness and a good balance of roasty chocolate and raisins with a touch of bready yeast. Finishes drier, toasty and bittersweet. A nice stout.

Draft @ Humpy’s - A pretty solid stout, just smooth and creamy with some rich roastiness, and a touch of licorice and molasses. Nicely done without being overpowering.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Long lasting cake batter colored head, and nicely opaque with a lighter edge. Very little aroma, probably the biggest fault. Nose was of coffee and a bit of caramel. It was very sweet with flavors of coffee liquor. I liked the mouthfeel...was milky. Smooth, sweet, quiet finish.

Courtesy of Puzzl. Thanks, Andy. The aroma is slightly soapy, but that subsides somewhat and dark malt and chocolate come though. Overall though the aroma lack intesnity and doesn’t exactly have me pining for the first sip.
The bosy is a deep black with maybe some very light notes of darl brown if you let the beer play in the light. The head diminishes rapidly from its original thumb thickness, but never fades all together and it a very nice dark mocha color and a desirable creamy consitency.
Fore is a bit watery and again a little detergent-y. Coffee and dark chocolate along with roasted malt and a decent burnt bitterness play from the middle to finish. There are also some light cream notes and a bit of stale of milk. Has some plusses, but has an equal tally of minuses.

This is simply one of the best beers produced in the state of Alaska. Alaska produces some extremely delicious beers, so that is no small compliment.

22 oz. bottle (3/06 bottled date) - My mother-in-law brought this back from Alaska. Pours a deep dark brown color with a good size tan head. Nice spotty lacing. Has a light roasted malt aroma. Has a semi-sweet chocolate flavor with a hint of vanilla. Medium body. A very nice stout. Way underrated. Thanks Ma V.

Bottle from Sprinkle. A very unimpressive offering from this Brewery. Thin on the palate and a flavor that you might expect from Coors offering.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle, via BA timmec64. Pours a clear black with mahogany edges under a two finger foamy light brown head that left nice lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet with light roasted and burnt malts. Notes of lactose, chocolate, and light coffee. Flavor is lactose sweetness and roasted malt up front fading to a burnt malt finish with some bitterness from the burnt malt. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with an oily texture and active fizzy carbonation. A very good Stout. Lots of lactose flavor and not thin in any aspect. Worth seeking out.
