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!

Originally reviewed: 1/26/10. Bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours a very deep black with a thin cola-like head on top. This pops and fizzles away to nothing pretty quick. Leaves some really pretty sip rings and sticky globs on the glass though. Scents of mild roasted coffee, burnt matches, and grassy hops. I like that hop scent in a big dark beer! The body is creamy and smooth with a bit of heaviness to it. Lightly drying finish. Great woodsy flavors in this beer. Like others have said, I’m not sure if Hickory was used in the making of this, but it does carry a wood-like flavor with it. Good black coffee flavors meld to a semi-sweet chocolate finish. Some bittering hops are noted as well. This is good, well-hopped Stout that I would not mind having again and again. So glad this is around the area now. Kudos, Olde Hickory!

The beer is dark brown in color with an off-white head. Pretty meh stout. Roasted malt is the primary aroma, otherwise it’s watery, bland, and boring. A mild acidity to the nose and a hint of coffee. The flavor is no different. Certainly overcabonated which doesn’t help out the mouthfeel or perception of acidity. Roasted malt, a bit of watery coffee, and maybe some chocolate. Overall, the same problem on the nose is present on the palate: this is just bland and watery.

22oz bottle that my brother brought back for me from Charlotte, thanks Jeff! Pours a black body with a finger-width, creamy, darker brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is roasts, some citrus pines and florals, and a crystal malt sweetness with dark chocolate, a light char, and a touch of chewy caramel. Flavor is woody and oaky up front with some flat vanilla and slightly charred roasts. Some grapefruit citruses and a very light chocolate in the middle with some crystal malts as well. Woody hops grow towards the end along with the roast as this finishes dry and moderately bitter before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, an alright stout. Pretty roasty and slightly charred with some citrusy and woody hops, but not enough of a malt backing. Nothing special.

22 ounce bottle, poured a dark brown, almost black color, with a thin tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, espresso, bitter bakers chocolate. Flavor is dry coffee, with chocolate added. Slightly thin on the palate, not as thick as I was hoping for, but nice non the less.

Cybercat (2991) - Georgia, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Strong aroma is smoky and little powdery with a hint of roast malt. It pours a dark-chocolate brown that lets daylight through only at the very edges, and has a fluffy, persistent, pale tan head. Flavor is mainly like burnt wood with just a little bit of coffee and tiny hints of molasses and unsweet chocolate. Texture seems just an itty bit on the thin side, but it is fairly fizzy and still manages to satisfy. Nothing great, but worth a try.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2011
On tap at Milltown, Carrboro. Hefty dark brown pour with slight sediment. Nose of sharp roasted malts, char, and coffee. In general this is right in my wheelhouse, but this is at times overbearing and too aggressive. Still solid.

decaturstevo (4665) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Dark brown/black pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is light coffee and roasted malt. Chocolate and esspresso with a nice bitter finish. A dry start with a hinto sweet finish. Just a bit watery and fizzy. A tad of body away from being a pretty nice beer.
