4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Old schoolhouse really knows how to make a killer stout...
Hooligan Stout smells of delicious bitter chocolate and freshly ground coffee. Appearance is jet back and thick. Taste is layers and layers of malt candy, toffee, coffee, chocolate, roast but all balanced. Palate is a little heavier than their coffee stout but still smooth. Overall this was incredibly enjoyable for not being an imperial. Not too many straight up stouts available in the PNW that could rival this beer. Deschutes’ stout might be the only thing better.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Chocolate and dark roasted malt scent. A dark pour with brown lace and brown bubbles aplenty. Taste is dark and sweet before turning very bitter. It sat for awhile...coffee in the aroma now, taste is less potent with chocolate and mocha flavors evident.

22 oz. bottle from curly- thanks again! Pours an opaque coffee brown with an inch of creamy tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, licorice, oatmeal, ash, and earth. Flavor of roasted malts, earth, tobacco, bitter dark chocolate, coffee, and burnt sugar. Charred wood on the finish. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a roasty mouthfeel. Not as sweet as most others in the style but a nice stout.

Just as it says which is my main criteria. A sweet stout with a load of chocolate with some coffee and a nice roast malt. The flavor is the same, no more no less. Just what it claims to be, a sweet stout. Don’t read too much into the labels. Let these beers be what they are meant to be. As a Hooligan, I am impressed.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured From a bomber into a pint glass. Pours a very dark brown-black with some very dark head.... Nice. Very little lacing though. Dark chocolate malt and coffee nose. Mouthfeel is dead on for a stout. Little more body than a porter but a nice mix between dry and sweet with a little alcohol tinge to it. Taste is straight up coffee. Little bit of alcohol at first but when it warms up that goes away. Damn good stout especially for the abv. Not that I could drink it all night but damn good.
