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. Itís 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.

Dogbrick (8113) - 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.

3fourths (8017) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 18, 2010
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.

Ernest (6216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2002
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2006 Head is mostly diminishing. Body is black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, chocolate), lightly to moderately hoppy (resin, grapefruit, apricot), with notes of vanilla and cherry. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation. A bit too acidic for me, but nice overall.

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.
