650 ml bottle at Garrison Ale House. Opaque dark brown colour with a fully diminishing frothy tan head. Fruity, vinous, coffee and light chocolate aroma. Big roasty coffee, chocolate, and vinous fruit flavours with a bittersweet vinous, fruity, and lightly roasty finish. Full bodied, creamy, rich, and smooth mouthfeel. Tasty stout.

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.

Turboninja (471) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 17, 2016
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.

BelgianBeerGal (3723) - Panama City, Florida, USA - APR 2, 2016
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.
