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.

12 oz bottle from Jeffy’s neighbor Fred, thanks man! Pours a solid balck body with a larger beige frothy head, nice. Aroma has some nice raostiness and vanilla extract but then there is this slightly weird sour powdered milk scent mixed in. Flavor is really nice with lots of roasty malts, burnt toast, dark chocolate and vanilla. Medium to fuller bodied with slightly strong carbonation and a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Very nicely done.

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.

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.

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.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of my Secret Santa. Pours a dark, dark brown color with a large tan head that patiently fades into a creamy crown. The aroma is roasted malt and mediumsweet dark chocolate. The flavor is also heavy on the roasted malt and dark chocolate. Additionally, a significant shot of coffee slips in at the end. Medium to full bodied and creamy smooth drinking brew. This is a solid stout indeed.
