COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Smooth, rich and creamy. Rye malt blends with roast and chocolate malts to create a new and delicious stout profile, balanced with soft and velvety hops. This northwest original is poured using the traditional nitrogen dispensing method, so it may take an extra minute to arrive, but the wait is worth it. The Black Bear won the Gold Medal at the 2003 GABF in the foreign-style stout category. Have a pint of Stout with the Seven-Barrel Burger or the Beer Battered Onion Rings.

seynie (383) - Tienen, BELGIUM - JUN 7, 2016
Pitch black with a nice light brown creamy head. Coffee grind at first, espresso with a bit of cream, but after a while brown candi sugar balances it off. The noise promises more than we get though. More carbonation than the typical stout. Dry finish, mineral, coffee, cream and sugar again
