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.

Bottle shared by B3C. Poured a black color with an average to large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and chocolate aroma. Medium chocolate sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a good beer that met my expectations.

Well-balanced with lots of burnt notes in the flavor. Medium-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Fairly short, roasty, lightly sweet finish. Thanks to robertsreality for the bottle.

3fourths (7803) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2003
Aroma of milk and hazelnut. Medium body, roasted coffee and malts up front, but takes a weird left turn in the middle of the tongue... soemthing like a cut lawn... or a bad cucumber... an odd vegetables/grass flavor which kills any points it was going to earn. The finish has a warming scotch quality along with a creamy texture.

Thanks to hey_kevin for sending this my way! This is a very impressive Stout. Pours the requisite deep dark color with a lasting medim thick light brown head. Nice roasted coffee aroma with a little hops. Warm and pleasant coffee and malt flavor. I really liked this one.
