COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Guaranteed to straighten you antler and warm your doe. This West Coast style of stout is one of McIntyre’s favorites.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Can. Pours a clear dark brown body under a large frothy dark brown head. The nose is burnt and roasty malt with some espresso, moderate hoppiness. The flavor is fairly dry up front with some nice coffee and roasted malt. A fairly hefty hop bite on the finish. Lighter bodied with a thinnish texture and minimal soft carbonation. Not the most exciting Stout, but it’s pretty solid.

ericdevin (827) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Can from unknown via trade, forgetting who from. Pours an opaque black-brown, decent amount of tan head. Warm milk chocolate nose, sweet, not really any roasted notes. Body lively and a bit roasty, finish well-balanced. I dig this.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Can from Whole Foods. Pours fairly turbid dark brownish black with tan head. Nose is dark malt, cacao, molasses, hops. Tastes dark malty, with notes of cacao, vanilla, and a slight off-putting flavor at the finish, and a somewhat watery palate. This one is OK, not great, and somewhat flawed.

hopdog (9018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2014
12oz can. Poured a dark brown color with an off white head. Roasty, chocolate, and some coffee in the finish.

bigda83 (215) - Jamestown, New York, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Draft. Pours a deep brown with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma of earth, roasted coffee, and chocolate. Taste was roasty and toasty with coffee, vanilla, and chocolate. Medium to full body, smooth and creamy, nice stout.

TheJester (1915) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2014
12 oz can. Looks right, although the brown head doesn’t last long. Lots of roast in the nose and mouth. Some coffee as well, but not nearly as much chocolate as some. Doesn’t taste or feel like a seven percent stout, which is a negative for taste and mouthfeel, but a positive for quaffability, I suppose. Some hops in there near the end, I think. Fairly dry. A little different. Well constructed.

jmcgavin12 (490) - Madison, USA - JUL 10, 2014
Pours a dark brown with a frothy one finger head. Aroma is roasted bakers chocolate with hints of espresso. Taste is roasty with hints of vanilla, a medium body and a smooth finish. Not as sweet as I was expecting but enjoyable

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
callmemickey (2874) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 9, 2014
Not sure what a "west coast style" stout is but this was a solid toasty stout. Dark brown-black body with a medium sized tan head and soapy lacing. Semisweet chocolate, earthy roasted malts and a touch of caramel. Medium bodied with appropriately smooth carbonation, modest sweetness and a satisfying finish.

3.6
   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
Dogbrick (8239) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Sample at Vintage Estate. Brownish-black pour with a thick tan head that recedes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of chocolate, malt and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of chocolate malt, roasted coffee and earthy hops. The finish is roasty with a coffee aftertaste. Decent overall.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 14/20
dunn4040 (125) - Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Can thanks to artmcd8. Pours a deep, cola color with a big frothy sand color head. Great looking beer. Rich notes of chocolate. Hints of bitter coffee, vanilla, and roasty characteristics throughout as well. Flavor is quite a bit more bitter than I was expecting. Quite bitter for a stout, really dominates the flavor. If this was a little more balanced this would be a heck of a stout. Flavor just falls a bit short for me.
