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!

Leighton (10969) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2014
Draft at the brewery taproom. Pours clear brown with a creamy beige head. Rich coffee ice cream aroma with hints of dark chocolate. Light to medium sweet flavor with dark roast coffee, modest bittersweet baking cocoa, dirt. Medium bodied with fineto average carbonation. Earthy bitterness to finish with notes of baking cocoa, ash, milk chocolate. Tasty.

On tap @ Olde Hickory. Pours a clear reddish brown appearance with a tan head. Molasses and brown sugar in the nose with a bit of smoke. Moderate sweetness and bitterness. Well balanced. Mild campfire smoke. Caramel, toffee, baked beans like. Smooth. Favorite here so far.

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

chinchill (1869) - 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 you’d 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.
