Flavor is dry roast and chocolate malt dominate with some earthiness and faint dark fruit esters; dry, ashy finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

lhns03 (73) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Probably the best beer in their standard lineup. Zonker is a nice easy drinking stout. Pours a dark brown/black with a good brown head. Very roasty on the nose. Milder flavor profile than the nose would suggest. Medium-Full bodied with a well balanced malt-alcohol level. Not over the top and very good.

RealChiSpise (4) - Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2013 does not count
Black with a dark head that dissipates. Coffee, toasty barley, molasses aroma. I like drinking stouts carbonated with CO2. Tasty sweet, roasted malt. Slightly bitter. Burnt barley, bitter finish. Snake River beers put me right back in Jackson, always a good thing in my book.
