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!

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2013
22oz Bottle. The pour was a very dark brown with a large (2-3 finger) light brown frothy head that had great retention, slowly reducing to a thick cap which lasted throughout and had good streaky lacing. The aroma was of a burnt bread malt, light resin hops and a bold leathery yeast with notes of bakersí chocolate, roasted coffee and a charred smoky scent. The taste was bitter, malty and rather roasty with a strong bitter chocolate note from the beginning, progressing with a strong hoppiness, a bitter coffee presence and a bold charred taste towards the end. The flavor lasted a very long time after the swallow, with a mild charred hoppy taste hitting you right in the back of the throat and lingering for just a little while longer. Mouthfeel was medium in body and dry in texture with a quite lively carbonation. Overall this was a bold and roasty Stout with a smoky charred finish and a good smooth drinkability...

Pour is a near black with a large tan head. Aroma is a decent char and ashy malt with a bitter bakers chocolate in there. Flavor is a nice chocolate and coffee with a decent char left on the tongue. pretty decent stout. My bottle looks different that the pic and the alcohol is only 5% but even with the lower alcohol the flavor is still there in a big way. The burnt notes of the malt really stand out.

The color is dark brown that is fairly clear when held to the light. It has a tan head. It has aromas of chocolate, roasted malts, some burnt smells, and low fruit aroma most like dark fruits. The flavors are roasted malts with chocolate compliments. There are some burnt flavors that are moderate. The fruit flavors are low and dark. It has a medium feel with slightly above moderate carbonation.

TAR (2687) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - MAR 2, 2016
Black chestnut. Stable khaki head. Tarry, inky aromas prevail over black licorice, espresso, chocolate truffles and grapefruit. Soft, plentiful carbonation. Caramel-rich and forcefully roasty, up front, with big citric hop bitterness cutting through the sugars and aligning with pronounced black patent astringency. Smoky, tarry notes are buried within the expressive maltiness. Prevalent notes of char supply noticeable acidity and some rough edges to the otherwise rich and multilayered malt, though a pleasant fudgelike, inky richness does persist. Stacks of burnt toffee, ash and espresso comprise the intensely roasty, smoky finish. A hopcentric stout a la Avery Out of Bounds. Just as Crystal malt serves as the base of Averyís rendition, Olde Hickory hasnít been shy with the Crystal, and itís similarly heavy handed with the roast and hops. A bit ashy and astringent for me to throw back quickly, but itís complex and virtually flawless. Nice effort.

RobertDale (5540) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - FEB 10, 2015
22 ounce bottle. Pours almost black with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and a bit of smoke. Pleasant, but nothing too exciting for me.

Black in the glass. Thin soapy head. Slight cocoa and nutty aroma. Dry on the palate. Cocoa flavor with a hint of dark coffee and roasted malt. Overall, a solid easy drinking brew.
