(on nitro at the brewery) Creamy tan head atop a black/cola body. Aroma is not very strong -- medium sweet, roasty. Taste is medium sweet, roasty, some coffee, nutty, chocolate. Much sweeter than bitter. Creamy, smooth, ligt-medium body. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 18, 2004
Tasted at the brewery. Almost pitch black with a light tan nitro head. A flavor of French Roast coffee and pine. Hearty and smooth. Huge clinging head with
tons of lacing. Soft milky aroma. Very sharp alcohol in the aroma as well. motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - NOV 20, 2004

Pilsner Room, Portland. Pretty decent stout, roasty with some hammy bacon sort of flavour, a bit smoky i guess, good length, nice roasty malts.
Black Gold Stout Nitro, black, tan head. Light caramel & coffee aroma, lightly astringent and dry but nice and roasty too. Super creamy, decent stout, nothing to write home about.

Fairly simple (dare I say bland?) stout. Good dark purple color with a white head. Moderate roasted aroma, but the body is thin amid the typical complement of stout flavor hints. (on tap, Full Sail Pilsner Room, Portland) Aubrey (3516) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - FEB 25, 2004
"Black Gold Stout" on tap at the brewery: Very dark and black. Soft, "liquidy" light-tan head. Wonderful milkshake-like texture really caught me off guard. Big notes of chocolate and coffee in the aroma. Roasty and slightly burnt, with a small hint of smoke. Milky-sweet. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Nitro @ Brewery - Nicely balanced, just what I like in a stout. Creamy and rich dark chocolate with some roasted coffee notes. Bittersweet and dry in the finish. Enjoyable. Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 26, 2004
Exploding coffee flavors in the palate. Also some nice burnt flavor. Smokey. Needs to make its mind up about being a dry stout or not. Big creamy head, but a weak body. I liked it. BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2006
Nice and dark with a big tan head. Aroma was chocolate with some roasted hazelnuts. Smooth and flavourful throughout before a semi-dry finish.
