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.

650ml bottle pours black in color with a small off-white head and little lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is roasted malty bitterness with some chocolate malty sweetness and a mild hoppy bitterness. Light to medium body and light carbonation. A little thin in body for a stout and detracts from the score. Otherwise, this is not a bad stout and was refreshing and easy to drink.

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.

Strykzone (5076) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2011
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 (1279) - 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.

West USA trip 2010. Bottled. The aroma has dark choclates, roast. Black coloured beer with an off-white, thin head. The taste is sweet, has chocolate bitterness. Clean palate. Light-medium bodied. But a bit too sweet imo.
