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.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2006
Bottle (12oz). via trade with Ughsmash. Poured dark opaque bubbly brown with a decent fizzy brown head. Roasty aroma - fruity malt, cola sweetness, nut oils, wet leaves - not bad. Taste is surprisingly bitter - cola/fruit dark roast malt, some chocolate and mild mocha, hops - but the finish is still a little cola-sweet. Mouthfeel is decently carbonated, bitter, slightly watery - like a lot of stouts, needs more body, and a little sweet, but decently roasty.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 12, 2005
Pours brown with a tan head. Smells malty and sweet with some nutty elements. Taste is tangy with some cherry and chocolate notes.

Rastacouere (6174) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 18, 2005
Clear very dark brown. Roasted cocoa dominance, but slightly phenolic at the same time and surprisingly sulfury in mouth, which was certainly unexpected from a stout. Simplistic cigary and oaky palate, rather dry, heavily roasty.

Suttree (6075) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 24, 2005
Black, brownish head. Thick and full bodied, with an aroma of chocolate and butterscotch (in a good way). Smooth and filling, with a flinty, coffee flavor up front. smooth, latte -like finish. Very enjoyable. Thanks to Jewedekind for the trade!

kramer (5827) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2006
12 oz bottle, via NachlamSie. Pours a pitch black colored body under a large fizzy and foamy light brown head that has good retention. Aroma is quite roasty with a good dose of coffee, burnt malt, cocoa, chalk, and a bit of caramel. Flavor is roasty and fruity up front with a little bit of coffee. Finishes slightly sour with some ashy burnt malt, caramel, and cocoa. The mouthfeel is extremely fizzy to the point where it actually foams up as soon as it hits the tongue. This seems to be in the very early stages of an infection that is wreaking havoc on the carbonation level. Overall, if the carbonation of this had been a little more pleasing then it would have fared much better overall. It would be worth a try I think.

nuplastikk (5785) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Draft at The Old Fashioned. Opaque black with an oily head. Pleasant coffee aroma. Smooth and mellow body, somewhat dry. Roasty with a subdued cocoa edge. Easy drinking, but full bodied enough to slowly sip. Solid Stout, with some coffee edges. Well done.

JK (5732) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2006
Draught at the ABR 2006. Available in bottles at Chicones, Hudson , WI. thick and better than average oatmeal stout, even though I don’t know if there is actually any oatmeal in it. Roasted barley, and some nuts. Black with an impressive head. Simple but the substantial body and full flavor make this a winner.

notalush (5728) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2006
This has been in our fridge for a while - can’t really remember where it came from, but I’m sure I owe thanks to someone - large tan head over an opaque body with lots of floaties - aroma of wood, sweet cream, crystal malt - very woody for a stout, with a heavy coffee roastiness - high but soft carbonation in the mouth - slight grape and anise - quite a nice stout.

Skyview (5696) - 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.

JPDIPSO (5604) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2002
Brown opaque with a deep tan, somewhat fizzy, head. Aromas of roast barley, molasses, and slightly vinous and alcohol as it warms. Sweet roasted barley, light caramel, and toast flavors. A decent sweet stout with a dry malty finish.
