COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Stout Ale’s Stellar attributes can first be seen in its beautiful opaque, black color and creamy tan head. A gentle swirl of this beer reveals to the nose a subtle fruitiness layered with cocoa and roasted aromas. The flavor is slightly sweet, balanced perfectly by its roasted dark malt flavors. This beer is simultaneously very soft, smooth and crisp. Its mid-range alcohol level and overall drinkability make this stout truly "Stellar".

From a Growler. I would call this a porter. Bit thin. Liked the subtle smokiness. Some earlier rating read that there are no roasted malts. I don’t believ this. Much better warm.

Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a very dark brown color with a smallish tan head on it. Nose is actually a little light ant roasty with some coffee elements in there. Taste is quite smooth, with a very slight bitterness to it and a lot of roasting coming through. I quite like it.

22 dec 2012, tap at their brew pub. Black. Nose is dark grain and burnt chocolate. Med/thin body and moderately fizzy. Dark bread, tart burnt chocolate. Maybe some plums. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap. Max’s. Pours a clear dark bown body with a small beige head that faded to a wispy partial covering. The nose is pretty light, just a bit of sweetness and a moderate roastiness. A little bit of a coffee with cream kinda thing. The flavor is a little bland for me, nice roastiness with a bit of coffee and chocolate, but it doesn’t really come across as a Sweet Stout at all. Finishes with a dry roastiness and a nice coffee flavor that lingers a bit. The mouthfeel is a bit thin up front but fades to a slightly clingy finish. This is ok, but doesn’t really do anything too special for me.

Draft. Small beige head, clear cola body. Aroma is moderately sweet, roast, some milk chocolate. Taste is moderately sweet, roast, bittersweet/milk chocolate. Low carbonation, light-medium body.

Meh. Tastes like Guinness with more of a backbone. The aroma is nothing special, taste is generic porter. Definitely a hit or miss.

PapaSkeetSkeet (818) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Dark with brown head. Aroma/flavor are old chocolate and slight phenolic/smoked malt (even though none was used) A cool flagship stout that is interesting and has enough flavor to go around.

Pours a deep dark black with mahogany undertones, very little head with a little dark espresso brown froth. Aroma is of sharp roast and coffee. Mouthfeel is a bit bubbly, slightly acidic and sharp. Tastes of very strong and sharp roast, a bit overpowering while finishing with a sour lactic note. There is a bit of dark toffee sweetness however it is severely overpowered by the roast. The finish is sour and a bit harsh. Strong fruity esters follow the roasted notes. On tap at Beveridge Place.
