COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The stout is a spin off of the Porter style that was widely popular in England in the 18th and 19th Century. History has it that - It is a bit more rich and "big" than a porter and was described as a "stoutly" porter, hence the name Stout. This brew uses a blend of U.S. grown and European grown malted barley. Larger quantities of dark roasted barley give this brew its deep dark color and roasted coffee notes. Uses Centennial hops grown in Yakima valley.

This beer is prety terrible. The only aspect thatís decent is the appearance which is suitably dark. Tastes acidic, with a licoricey tart aftertaste. Tried at Josh N.ís house in 2013.

Bottle pours deep brown/black with a tan head. Aroma shows moderate roast, cocoa, caramel, and light florals. Flavor is pretty heavily roasted with definite ashy qualities that do not mesh too well with the soapy/resinous hop profile. Overall body is moderate and finishes with some acridity.

4 oz. pour from 12 oz. bottle, split with friends while watching the bowl games. Thanks, iradog, for picking this up in Green Bay and sharing. Pours dark brown with a moderate amount of taupe head. Dark chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Tarry taste features a spruce flavor. There is a very off-putting chemical taste that emerges upon multiple sips; not good! This wasnít my kind of stout to begin with, with its coffee/feces-esque (sorry to be redundant) astringency, but the chemical quality is the real flavor killer. Medium body. Forgettable palate. One of the other guys who tried this literally made it a drain pour, and I canít say I blame him. The final of five Thunder River beers I sampled in a row.
