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 Mouintain Sun poured a clear dark brown with a small diminishing brown head. Aromas of coffee, carmel, milk chocolate, brown sugar and light roastiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of coffee, roasted malt, vanilla and milk chocolate with a smooth lingering chocolate finish.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 1, 2008
This was an extremely nice beer to drink. Full bodied and very much on the big and rich side, creamy mouthfeel with lots of malt ball and chocolate creme maltiness. Burnt bread crumbs, and a bit of roasted coffee come through as well, this would have been just fine being this malty, but the piney hops kind of throw it out of balance in the finish in my opinion. Still lovely to drink.

This is a wonderfully complex stout. With notes of toasted oats, roasted barley, and black malt. Marris Otter malt comes through as well. Fantastic Stout! The pub "is what it is" but come here for the beer!!

Poured an opaque black color with a thin, light tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, light chocolate, vanilla beans, toffee, and a bit of lactose. Taste of sweet chocolate, dry, roasted malts, anise, and citrus hops. Somewhat astringent mouthfeel.
