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!

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.

burg326 (5368) - Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2012
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 (5111) - 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 (5779) - 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.

DiarmaidBHK (4189) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Draft at the BierGarden. Pours black with an inch of khaki foam which disappears quickly and doesn’t leave much lacing. Nice notes of chocolate on the nose. Definitely some hop bitterness on the tongue to go with the cocoa. Finishes clean.

zizzybalubba (1792) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 3, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine (Triangle) in Raleigh, NC. Cola-like dark brown pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate and faint floral hops. Smoky malts hit the tongue first with notes of burnt espresso and dark chocolate. Medium bodied. A nicely done stout.
