COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is STOUT beer, not for the meek! Hickory Stick Stout is a whole- lot-a beer full of malt. English pale and crystal malts start this beer quickly followed by big time chocolate and black patent malts. Tons of Cascade hops go into Hickory Stick Stout to round out the malt character. Hickory Stick Stout is a very robust stout, bursting with flavor!

From bomber. Pours a nice dark dark brown with a finger plus of tan head. Nice aroma featuring malt. VERY fizzy - pretty much excessively so. Malt and coffee dominate taste. Will be interesting to see how this is when not so fizzy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

draft, very dark brown with off white head and decent lacing. lots of roasted malts and chocolate in the nose. the flavor is pretty good. roasted malts, mild smokiness to it in the middle and the end. not overpowering medium body.

chinchill (1602) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2013
12 oz bottle pours dark brown, nearly black, with a light brown head. Moderate retention; superior lacing. Smells surprisingly hoppy for style. A clear hop presence in the flavor too, but this is dominated by dark roasted grains with a touch of char. More than a hint of char in the finish, with dark roasted grains with a hint of coffee lingering on and on. Medium-full body; very good carbonation level; smooth; dry finish. O: a nice stout, but with a bit too much burnt grain flavor.

maslupulos (39) - North Carolina, USA - APR 16, 2013
Beautiful deep brown pour with two fingers of tan, creamy head. Huge hit of chocolate on the nose followed by licorice, vanilla, and roasted grains. Taste not what youíd expect, a lot stronger on the hops than most stouts. Dark chocolate, smokiness, and a big piney hop finish. Hop bitterness lingers for a long time. Really unique stout.

22 oz. bottle from John Owens. Pours a dark cola brown with a small off white head. The aroma has roasted malts, dark chocolate, earthy, with some bark. The flavor has the same; roasted malts, bark, dark chocolate and earthy. A bit thin, but not too bad.

Bomber to snifter (thanks alexsdad06). Looks solid; A dark cola with thin light beige lacing. Smells solid too; hickory and malt. Tastes like it smells with the oil of the hickory giving the illusion of spice. Average on the palate. Solid beer.

rondphoto (1775) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Clear very dark brown amber with a foamy head and horizontal streaks of lace. The aroma leads in nicely: solid roasted malt going in that reveals a lot of bitter chocolate (and a little coffee) through the palate to the finish. At the last, the taste is very much like Bakerís semi-sweet chocolate squares. A good late night sipper.

Bomber to snifter. I hope my glass is contaminated because something is way off in the aroma. Dark brown stout. Dark roast albeit thin flavor. Had to pour it.

bhensonb (10692) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Bomber from timfoolery. Itís a wild pour. One inch of dark brown and 4+ fingers of creamy/foamy tan head. Aroma through that head is tuff, but thereís a lot of heavy dark burnt malt down below. Med body or better. Flavor is fairly smooth burnt malt with some aspects that could be bourbon or celery. Odd, but I could call it either way. Thereís some chocolate, and itís rather ashy, but itís dry, seemingly astringent, and thereís a lot of hop bitter. Pardon while I attend to the foam creeping from the bottle. Damn nice drink. Much more flavor than many stouts. As flavorful as an IS, but in a very different, but similar, way.
