Draft at RNH. Pours a black body with an off white head. Light chocolate malt and a dry woody body. Simple and session able not bad. BillKismet (4090) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Dark bodied with a brown underskin. Velvety, creamed chocolate head. Dry barley aroma that is lacking roast character. An idea of oats in the air. Smooth body, but no roast character. Pretty dull overall. gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 10, 2009
I liked this one more than most other raters--I thought it had a more complex taste than others are giving it credit for. the aroma was smoked, peppery, vanilla, bourbon and coffee, with the same tastes along with a slight bitter grassy taste. Perhaps it was just different, after 15 tastes, but I thought it an enjoyable stout. carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 10, 2009
dark black with a nice sized cream head. muted coffee aroma. taste is flat with a bitter latte element. palate is unremarkable. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - APR 7, 2009
On tap at Pike Street location. Color was dark brown/black with a creamy head; nitro. Aroma was chalky and a bit oaty; not too roasted. Flavor was same with a touch of tartness. I believe that was by design. Not a huge fan of this one.

On tap. Black with big nitro head. Good roast with some chocolate and coffee. Smooth and creamy...enjoyable on this damn cold day. Not that boldest stout in the world, nor should it be. mkobes (2142) - paramus, New Jersey, USA - DEC 19, 2008
