COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our only named beer to date. Its' honorary status is in tribute to its' designer, Allen Rhoades, a fellow brewer who captured a blue ribbon at the Western Washington State Fair when it was entered as a homebrew. It's everything a stout should be. Rich and hearty, not thick and overpowering, comes complete with a creamy head. Chocolate and crystal malts along with roasted barley combine to create the wonderful flavor. Compliments deserts well: try one in place of a cup of coffee.

Tap. Opaque with a thick tan head. Very fresh beer. Nose was of coffee, sweet dark chocolate. Taste was of malt, chocolate, vanilla and coffee, great roasted flavor. Creamy and smooth. Great mouthfeel. I would recommend!

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - MAY 2, 2007
Bottle from my dad. Poured black with a small tan head. Pretty good carbonation. Nose was light with roasted and chocolate malts. Full bodied and easy to drink. Better than I expected.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2007 Thanks to RagallachMC and tytoanderso, who both sent me bonus bottles. Deep brown pour. Medium head. No retention or lacing. Aroma of coffee and chocolate malts, and a little bitter, grassy hops. Tasted the same, without the hops. Slightly bitter finish. Creamy texture. No surprises here, but very good.

Skyview (5109) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2007
Picked up a few bottles from Trigs in Wausau. This stout pours a black brew with some red highlights and a foamy tan head. Aroma of strong coffee, pecans and dark chocolate. Taste of mocha and chocolate barley malt. Some bitter aftertaste.Very well good northern Wisconsin stout.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2007 On tap at Wilmarths Deepwater Grille. Wow, almost like drinking a totally different beer. Dark brown with creamy brown head. Dark chocolate nose with some coffee but the hazelnut dominates. Coffee and chocolate in the body with a smooth finish.

Original rating from a bottle:6/3/6/2/15
Nice malty nose. A little coffee. brown pour. Lots of coffee in this one, but a little rough on the finish.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 7, 2007
12 oz bottle. Poured a deep dark brown color with orange highlights. Extremely effervescent. Way too much carbonation. Must be a bad bottle. Head was a light tan color. Very roasty aroma and flavor reminiscent of coffee and bitter chocolate. Full bodied with a bitter roasty finish.

joebrew (608) - Farewell Minny; Hello Puyallup, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Pours a nice dark black color with a smallish brown head. Nice dark roast coffee and chocolate on the nose. Nice smokey flavor with a nice dose of chocolate and coffee.

Stine (1453) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 4, 2007
Bottle at Sir Benedict’s Tavern. Aroma of prunes, dark and densely fruity with caramel. As the beer warms the immediate strength of the prune taste dissipates, giving way to flavors of chocolate and oatmeal raisin cookies. Much richer palate at this point. A little different, and not so bad at all.

troyc (2200) - Illinois, USA - JAN 1, 2007
(Bottle) Pours black with a relatively large and lasting beige head. Roasted malts are very strong, almost to the point it tastes a little burnt. Chocolate notes as well. A pretty good stout, but could be a little more balanced and a little less carbonated.
