Faint aroma of roasted malts. Inky black in color with a quickly disappearing head. Toasty caramel flavor meshes nicely with deeply roasted malts. Very creamy, with lingering spruciness and slight char. This is very nice.

Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate dark tan head on there. Nose is quite roasty, and has some nice oatmeal coming through on it. Taste is actually a little more bitter than I would have anticipated, but I can get some oats as well as a whole lot of roasting.

In short: A well made grainy roasted stout that is too sweet for me.
How: Bottle 22oz, consumed a few months after purchase, bottle sent to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt.
The look: Black body topped by a persistent small tan head.
In long: Nose is roasted grains, a In mouth the beer is very full body, generous carbonation that lighten up the heavy body, a texture that is both creamy and harsh-grainy. A full heavy body with plenty of charred grainy malts. Too much sweetness for what I want from a 7% stout, and the sweetness navigate around soft black liquorice candy, molasses, vanilla extract and overcooked caramel. Light lactic notes here and there. Notes of sweet cocoa beans and very light notes of coffee beans. Some tobacco to round up the whole thing. Basically it has most of the elements one can expect from a beer like this, itís just that I donít have a sweet tooth and the sweetness sensation in this one was well above average for a 7% stout, feels as sweet as a +9% stout but without the richness of a big impy stout. Iím giving it a passing grade because it is well made, sweet stouts lovers will probably disagree with my strictly hedonistic rating. I can relate to this Hooligan name, I donít watch any sport and I donít cheer for any teams but Iím a natural hooligan, I naturally hate people who wear different colors of cloths than I do.

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle. Dark brown to black with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate and roasted malt. The flavor is full of big chocolate notes, as well as some roasted malt and dark fruit. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Damico (2452) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2012
The second sweet stout in a row, this was is much more bitter with a lot of hops going on in comparison to the first. The stout pours dark thick, unclear black with a big creamy cocoa colored head. The aroma brings bitter roasted malts and some sweet booze. The flavor brings roasted malts and bitter hops blended well together.

reebtogi (4051) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
650ml bottle pours black in color with a 3 finger light brown head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted grains and chocolate with hints of coffee. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with some chocolate sweetness coming through and a peppery finish. Medium bodied with some adequate carbonation. A very well done stout which is quite tasty and highly recommended.

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. Deschutesí stout might be the only thing better.
