COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-bodied beer with deep chocolate color, velvety malt texture, and a dark-roasted flavor, with hints of smokiness and coffee. It combines the dryness of traditional Dublin-style stout with the strength and character of Imperial Stout.

One of the best stouts around. Pours thick with a brown head. Aromas of coffee are evident first, however Chocolate bursts through on the first sip. Caramel and treacle notes lingers in the body. High ABV, however it is masked well by the sweetness of the dark malts. Fantastic. Best off the tap at the brewery itself.

This is a really nice beer with a good combination of stout characteristics. It is strong with a licorice taste like an imperial, but it has the dryness of an Irish. It has a nice coffee flavor that you would expect from Seattle and a good color. This could very well be Seattle’s Best.

Bottle, 22oz. It pours a more or less black body, topped by a dense, light tan head that lasts and leaves lacings. The aroma is deliciously dark, with treacle, roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee and some dried fruits. Some citrusy notes shines through as well. The flavor is equally good, sweet but not too sweet, the bitterness is balancing, and some alcohol warmth can be felt. Full body, and very soft carbonation. The finish stays for a good while, leaving your mouth covered with sweet, roasted maltyness. Glad I bought this one, it was certainly worth a visit. 130703

On tap at Pike’s Pub, pour is dark black with slight red tone, strong palate, roasted flavor. Taste is good but not everything that a stout can be.

Refrigerated brown bomber poured into a English pint. Pours black with huge medium brown head (may be the darkest head I have seen). Thick body, excellent velvet texture, medium body, and slightly roasty/coffee aroma. Taste is roasty, bakers chocolate, salty, and really dry finish Definitely should be a dry stout and the best I have had.

7% shared by Mick at the World Beer Museum. Great Chocolate aroma and a nice black pour with a dark brown head. A wonderful creamy smooth mouthfeel, bitter with a lasting aftertaste. Quite nice.

Pours a dark oik like color with an active chocolate hued head that leaves some light lacing as it goes down. Roasted malts, some sweet fruit with a hint of chocolate. The taste has more a more pronounced coffee note. With a slightly dry finish. Good stuff.

Pike XXXXX Stout has a thin-to-medium tan head and a very dark brown, almost black appearance, but with visible bubble streams, upon close inspection. Lacing is scant. The aroma is of heavily-roasted barley malt, dark brown bread crust, and sweetness. Flavor is of deep, dark, astringent, roasted barley malt, a good amount of bitterness, sweetness, and some chocolate and coffee. Mouthfeel is medium to heavy, and Pike XXXXX Stout finishes mostly wet, heavy, sweet, and rich. This is a sipper. Overall, I score it most excellent. Glad I tried it! RJT
