Deep red-black in color, with a dense chocolatey brown head. Hogsback is mildly carbonated and aged longer than other ales. This English style stout is richer, smoother and slightly sweeter than typical Irish style stouts, making it popular among a wider range of beer aficionados. Extremely complex in its flavor and aroma it will at once give you impressions of coffee, chocolate, molasses, hops, sweet malt, and silky-smooth alcohol. A big beer to brew, but worth the extra effort! This is Mt. Hood's second-most popular beer. O.G. 1.064/ 4.5 abv/ Magnum, Mt. Hood, Cascade, Willamette hops/ Four different malts and rolled oats/ Molasses and licorice.

(on cask) slight sulphur bitter in the nose, behind the roast & coffee notes. Mild bitter roast that dances above all before being pulled down & drowned by the frey between coffee and chocolate.

Jet black with a tan head, looks delicious. And the aroma roasted grain, chocolate, coffee, and licorice. Incredibly smooth mouthfeel, perfect amount of bittering hops, this could possibly be one on the best oatmeal stouts Ive had to date.

Cask @ Horse Brass. Pours black, little head. Distinct lacing. Aroma is licorice, toasted malt. Flavor is same,plus chocolate, and tiny amount of hops. Quite sweet. Lingers for a while. Pretty decent cask brew.

Government Camp, Or - on tap at the brewpub. Dark brown leading to black pour with a thick mocha colored head. Aroma has a nice chocolate essence to it with some coffee back end notes. Flavor mimics the aroma with some licorice added in for good measure to accentuate the coffee and chocolate and sweeten it up a bit. Thick, oily mouthfeel. My pick of the sample to enjoy a pint of .

Nice dense head. Roasted coffee and chocolate aroma and taste. Almost too sweet.
