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!

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2012 Opaque black body. Little head disapates quickly. Aroma dark fruits, brown sugar, dark chocolate. Creamy mouth feel. Taste subtle notes of dark fruits, dark chocolate,citrus,with a smokey roasted bitter finish. As it warms up to room temp chocolate more noticeable. Good brew

Poured into a shaker from 12oz bottle. Nice head and lacing. Dark fruit flavors, chocolate and caramel. Nicely rounded and by far my favorite from south shore.

BOTTLE: room temp. Pours black with lively tan head, quickly dissipates. Aroma is not very strong but definite roastedness. Flavor packs a punch of roasted barley and cocoa. Palate is bubbly but short lived. A decent stout.

(bottle) Medium body. Tastes like roated malt and caramel, slightly bitter but balanced by a fruity sweet smell. Thanks CaptainCougar!

A workmanlike effort with a faint roasted taste.

Pours a thick dark brown with a tan 1 finger head that quickly dissipates. I’m getting lots of coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, molasses. It is a bit watery - I’m not a huge Stout drinker and I was able to notice this so heavier stout fans might be less impressed. Overall I wouldn’t say this beer is breaking any new boundaries in the Stout business, but a nice drink nonetheless.

Wonderfully rich chocolate and coffee aroma. Color is almost black with a reddish-brown hue. Pours to a thin tan head that disappeared quickly. Taste is nice, lots of coffee and chocolate with barley notes. Palate is excellent, dryand slightly carbonated. Overall an excellent stout.

This is my local brewery and this is certainly the best drink in town. solid, near black in color. The head is always thick but could be creamier. I like it creamy. Good balance of hops and well roasted malt. The right combination gives a good coffee flavor. Full bodied enough but never heavy or overbearing.
