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.

Dark velvet like pour with a pleasant but not overwhelming aroma. Small head looks very similar to an imperial stout. Thick roasty chocolate flavor with only a hint of alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and respectable finish. Not bad

Dark brown pour, thin tan head. Aroma is roasty chocolate, coffee, brandy. Flavor is a remarkably balanced partially sweet, partially dry stout flavor. Nice espresso, chocolate. Pretty good.

Big thanks to Old_Mr_Crow for carting this to DC for me. Pure black body with a nice brown head. Great aroma, caramel, coffee, roasted nuts. Taste is very nice, slightly hot on the tounge, coffee and dark chocolate bitter. Sweet coffee overtones however are evident as is some dark fruit as in prunes. Ending is dry and sweetly-bitter. A very nice stout that Iím glad I was able to try.

Bottle. Pours a dark black body with a mocha head. Cocoa aroma, chalky, and some distant hops. The flavour is nicely done - toasted dark malts, chocolate. Well balanced but nothing sticks out particularly well. Itís good but not necessarily special.

On tap at Pike Pub, Seattle. Black, lasting tan head. Smokey aroma, bacony aroma. Bit of sourness in mouth, liquorice, riding over the top of coffee dominated dark malts,espresso, bitterdark choc flavours. Bitter finish. Great balance of liquorice juicyness and bitter dry malt finish. Some hop in evidence on finish. Excellent stout. Got everything, good complexity

Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & mds -- my bottle courtesy of acertain. Not sure what vintage, í05-í06 I think? Pours a deep black with a huge mostly-lasting light-brown head. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, dark fruit, hops and chocolate. Slightly sweet flavour of coffee, roasted malt and chocolate with a dry bitter finish. Medium bodied. Hmmm, not as great as I expected, maybe some batches are better then others? Either way, I still quite enjoyed it.

tap at the brewpub - Pours black with a moderate, enduring tan head. The aroma is roast malt and coffee. This full bodied brew has a taste to match and the coffee flavor is at just about the right moderate level. The finish is mildly dry and bitter. Good stout.

On tap at Beveridge Place Pub. First time Iíve tried this, and I was told itís a "new recipe". Sweet with nice roasted malts. Little carbonation and no head. Better than anything Iíve had from Pike. Tasty. Good hops.
