Very drinkable, not too strong stout with good balance of toasty notes, malt, and hops. Prevalent, American-style hopping but has nice dry finish and ends clean on the palate. Medium-light mouthfeel. Bill Becker (1041) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Got this from Adam in AK with a couple of his home brews. Thanks!!
It’s black, the pour brought a 1 finger head of tan foam that lasts and lasts and when I check my glass after sipping, the lacing is good.
The smell is very roasty with notes of dark chocolate and that certain aroma that tells you that this is an Irish Dry Stout.
Very dry tasting indeed. Loads of roasted malt and some chocolate with a rather stinging bitterness that enforces the dry. It drinks a wee bit stronger than the 5.9% to me but no matter. This is bloody excellent! Atom (2455) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 28, 2017
On tap at Alaska fish house, on nitro pours a dark brown black with a large khaki head. Deep mellow aroma of chocolate, coffee, nuts, and molasses. Smooth creamy texture, balanced flowing flavors, taste of bakers chocolate, molasses, nutty with dry earthy bitter hops on the finish. Solid! Braudog (6717) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 7, 2011
Nitro at Humpy’s. Creamy of course. Nice solid head. Moderately bitter with a charcoal kick to finish. Nice welcome to Alaska. (#4074, 2/7/2011) nearbeer (5424) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Draft pint at Humpy’s in ANC. Awesome look and mouthfeel; creamy head and softest body ever. Nitro btw, but I don’t care you Puritans. Served a bit too cold, so the aroma was just a hint of coffee and cocoa. Flavor was nice but hidden a bit also, but the aftertaste showed a great balance of sweetish caramel and chocolate against a slightly more powerful acidity of the roast. Medium-heavy body is dry, watery and highly downable at this temperature.

[Tap] Pint at a restaurant near Denali National Park in early September. Inky black pour with a stout brown head on top. Heavy char and ash in the nose. Lighter milk chocolate and vanilla in the aroma as the beer warms. Burnt malts, wood, espresso, anise and ash throughout. Dry finish. Thick and oily mouthfeel. A really nice surprise. Even though the ABV is low, this is a hearty beer that could keep you warm through the winter. maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Draught, nitro. Pours a near black color with a moderate light tan head on it. Nose is somewhat roasty, like black coffee. Taste is slightly sweet and very roasty, with coffee coming through as well. Not at all bitter, though. andrewje41 (3893) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - JUL 19, 2014
Can pour. Pours black with a foamy tan head. Very nice chocolate malt aroma and flavor. Semi sweet chocolate flavor throughout. Long roasted finish too. Really well done. Enjoyed this one. jsquire (4492) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 5, 2011
On tap at Humpy’s served on a nitro pump. This was still cascading into the head when it was served. Opaque beer with a foamy brown nitro powered head that left glass coating lace. Very little nose with some bitter chocolate and black malts. Nice light nitro moutfeel. Lots of dusty bitter chocolate, some ash, burnt toast and some sweetened coffee. There is a hint of something lactic in the back. Very enjoyable stout. Travlr (24897) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 21, 2012
Draft at GABBF. Almost black, beige head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Taste is similar. Decent stuff for a 6% stout.
