650ml bottle. Pours an opaque black with a large, creamy, long lasting, brown head that leaves plenty of lacing. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee and a hint of smoke. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, coffee, licorice and dark chocolate with a dry, mildly bitter finish. Medium body with a creamy, oily texture and soft carbonation. Very nice.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black with a thick and creamy tan head. Aroma is espresso. Flavor is espresso. I think they gave me a shot of espresso instead of a beer. But in all seriousness, this is a great stout.

Quite good. Bomber. Rich nose of cocoa and licorice. Oily thick palate with anise taste. Gritty and grainy and roasted notes too. Well balanced and complex.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2016 On tap at Pike brewery: delicious stout. Roasted coffee and chocolate finish outlasts smooth but hoppy start.

Easily the best beer Josh and I tried at the brewery in 2016. Assertive maltiness. Lots of coffee, some licorice, dark chocolate, and wood.

3.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap@Pike’s, Seattle, USA. Light aroma with roasted malts and some coffee. Pitch black color with medium, creamy, lighter beige head. Strong, balanced taste with organic roasted malts, dark chocolate and some coffee. Wide taste spectrum and long aftertaste with roasted malts. Strong body with medium/light carbonation. Overall, rich, organic and balanced. Much taste for percentage. Should have more intense aroma.

Draftv at the brewery with Mikey Reeves. Great northwest styled stout with a good hop bitter kick but also some coffee and chocolate. Lingering bitter finish. Very nice, especially if you like hops.
