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.

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

Dark pour one finger dark brown head that lingers. Aroma of astringent roasts, sweet cinnamon, long pepper, and grassy hops. Bitter grassy hops dominate the flavor profile initially and it is quite dry and moderate/comparatively light mouth feel. The aftertaste of coffee and roasts is quite pleasant though.

Pours a thick motor oil black with little head. Lots of dark chocolate, smoke and earthy aroma. Taste is heavily roast malt and chocolate. A nice stout, no doubt

Very nice stout. Coffee aroma following a thick black frothy pour. A quite roasty stout, with pronounced coffee taste and to a lesser extent chocolate. Recommended! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tampa, Fl - Total Wine - 22 oz bomber. Black as coal viscous our with a thick, khaki colored creamy head. Aroma has some potting soil notes, a hint of Copenhagen snuff. Solid stout flavor with some bittersweet chocolate, a hint of licorice, some espresso and a back end of potting soil. Mouthfeel has a nice chalky dryness to it. A definite classic!

Bottle. Dark w decent tan head. Full aroma of chocolate malt and a hint of coffee. Think and dry stout. Full bodied with lots of roasty goodness. Touch of bitterness but not hoppy. A very good and solid stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black as night with a good tannish-brown head and good lacing. Aroma is roasty and a little burnt with nice coffee and chocolate notes. Flavor follows through with the nose, maybe with a touche of anise (but it’s subtle). The chocolate and coffee are a bit more pronounced, leaving a slightly cappuccino effect for the imbiber. Body is full, thick, rich, and leaves a wonderful slightly roasted, slightly burnt aftertaste that I really enjoy in a stout. Definitely recommended. I’ll for sure buy this one again.
