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!

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.

Draft sample at Knoxville Brew Jam. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted coffee and chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Medium roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of long duration. My expectations where met.

brokensail (9921) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 26, 2012
The beer is dark brown in color with an off-white head. Pretty meh stout. Roasted malt is the primary aroma, otherwise itís watery, bland, and boring. A mild acidity to the nose and a hint of coffee. The flavor is no different. Certainly overcabonated which doesnít 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.

Leighton (9838) - 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.
