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.

AxeMaster221 (342) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2003
Black body, and a long lasting dark tan nitro head that left nice lacing on the glass. Malty roasted aroma, and a very roasty flavor, some coffee notes. Very smooth, and almost expansive in the finish. Very good.

Flaske 650ml spandert av Rune. Delt med ham, Snegurochka & TheCellarer på Tårnrommet 14 Aug 17. Svart. Filmskum med litt farge. God kaffearoma. Smaken lakris med spor av søt frukt. Behagelig tørr ettersmak av kaffe.

Rune (13508) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2017
650ml bottle, 7.0 % abv, bought at Vinmonopolet Langnes. Almost black in body appearance with a deep ruby shade. Covering fawn-coloured head leaving spotty lacing behind. Promising dark bread, ash, and liquorice to the nose. Dark malty flavours with impact of chocolate, wood, and liquorice. Finish off with a smooth roasted bitter touch. Well bodied. Good drinking. (Shared with Snegurochka, TheCellarer and Finn, session in Tårnrommet, Tromsø 14.11.2017).

22 ounce bottle from Tavour. The beer is a dark brown to black with a thick head of khaki foam. Aroma is ashy, dark chocolate, strong roast. The ash and earthy dark chocolate are the strongest characteristics. Fairly dry throughout. Thick mouthfeel. Big body and medium carbonation.

pivnizub (10811) - Bochum, Por�ř�, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2017
Bottle (650ml): Pitch-black, medium-sized persistent tanned head; slightly sourish toasty and fruity (dried berries) nose, delicate hints of smoke plus wood and vanilla; moderate sweet-sourish flavour plus a little bitterness, medium bodied, quite smooth ; lingering sourish-hoppy finish with traces of coffee and dried fruits. Very pleasant stuff...

From 65cc bottle. Pours black with no foam. Aroma is coffee, plums, whisky. Body is fairly light, with some stickiness. Taste is only moderately bitter, with a domination of roasted flavor. Finish is short.
