COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with Maris Otter malt, two varieties of Munich malt, a dark Caramel malt, and generous portions of both black and roasted barley. The Thunderhead is our standby for stout. It’s good and dark, has a full body, plenty of alcohol, and hops too! You may enjoy the depth of flavor in its malt sweetness, roastiness, hop bitterness, and alcohol kick.

On tap at Vine Street Pub. Pour is deep brown, almost black with a small khaki head and good lacing. Roast, vanilla, woody aroma; other notes of coffee, coca, and grass. Taste is toasty, malty, brown sugar, chocolate, grassy hops, a touch earthy, and toffee with a light bitter finish. Thick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Pretty tasty.

Pour on tap is dark black with nice tan head at Vine St pub, aroma brings notes of standard caramel, toffee, dark chocolate and earthy coffee, hints of roast and slight dark fruit. Taste is your standard stout, with a mix of caramel, coffee and chocolate notes, hints of nuts, earth in there, finish fairly bitter. Nicely done.

On tap @ Vine Street. Dark brown pour, almost clearish black (?). Aroma of chocolate malt, a touch of coffee, and some light fruit notes. Taste kinda starts with some hop fruitiness--some orange, a bit of pineapple. On a blind taste I might confuse this with a Belgian Pale Ale. But the taste profile’s middle melts into a bit of chocolate and some caramel. The finish brings back the hop fruitiness without any hoppy bitterness. A very smooth and balanced stout.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2010 Sample at the brewpub. I will add the entirety of my notes as soon as possible. This Stout pours nearly black with a medium thick tan head that dissipates slowly to a film. Patchy lacing on the glass. Roasty malt and coffee in the nose. Medium, dry body with flavors of caramel malt, roasted coffee and a touch of chocolate. The finish is mildly bitter coffee and hops with a roasty aftertaste. Decent overall.

draft. fresh pine needle and green citrus hops in the nose clash with roast and chocolate malt. medium body, okay carbonation, overly bitter and acidic hops come across as messy with the astringent roast; seems like burnt plastic. forgettable finish. okay beer but not something that demands attention.

patrick767 (3528) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 19, 2009
tap at Mountain Sun - Pours near black with a light tan head that leaves heavy lacing. It smells of coffee and big roast malt. The flavor is sweet roast malt up front with bitter chocolate and coffee coming in later and ample hops. It has a long, roast finish.

On Nitro at MOuntain Sun. Black, very black with silky tan nitrous head. Big malty chocolate and coffee. Heavy coffee. Alcohol really comes out in taste with hops behind a very malty chocolate roast. Sugar sweet. Soft wet and it lingers
