COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flavors of dark chocolate and roasted malts are complemented by generous quantities of Northwest hops to give this dry stout an assertive but balanced profile. A traditional yeast strain lends further complexity to this rich dark brew.

Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Poured a dark brown with a good sized tan head. Nose of roasted malts and chocolate. Medium body and a carbonated mouthfeel. Flavor is dominated by the chocolate but there is some burnt malts and a touch of fruit. Dry and slightly biter finish. Quite good and I enjoyed every drop.

22 oz. bottle from Hayduke. We shared it via facebook chat. This poured a very dark brown with a tan head that did not last long. The nose was like a milk stout but my bottle was quite cold. There was some chocolate. The flavor was some nice chocolate and it was kind of like what a soda jerk would pour. Some nuts were tasted and it was a bit syrupy. There was a bit of zing on the tip of my tongue.

GJF (1248) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - JUN 30, 2011
On tap at Sirens in Port Townsend. Starts out pretty good. Malty aroma. Velvety body. It’s a little think and watery, but decent. But the flavor goes downhill as it goes on.

Served on tap at the brewery. The appearance is a deep flat brown black. The nose is medium with roasted grains, brown rice, and hints of coffee. The flavors are also medium in intensity. A nice malty, brown rice flavor, some bakers chocolate. Medium bodied mouth. A well done everyday stout. Looking at other reviews this is much better on tap.

2010-06-29. Very dark brown body, creamy tan head and lace. 4+ Flavour has a modest roast, sweet mild malt middle has muted toast and caramel/sweet accents, modest dry roast bitterness in the finish. 7+ Aroma has modest roast over muted coffee and mocha notes, mild malt core. 6+ Very smooth average palate is pleasant but less chewy than my preference. 3+ Very pleasant drinkable stout is a bit tame. On tap at the brewery, Port Townsend

[3036-20100629] Tap. Little toasted roast malt aroma has a hint of red wine. Murky, dark brown body with a long-lasting creamy mocha head and thick lacing. Rich mid-tone roast malt flavour has a hint of coffee and sweetness throughout. Full body is smooth. Easy drink, could even have handled more roast but nice as it is.
