[Tap – Brewery]
Deep dark brown color no to little head. This was a Chocolaty, malty, roasty toasty brew. Loved the flavors and the used of malts. Had a good dry finish and a flavor to die for. Nitrogen induced so that really helps. This brewery knows dark beers the light stuff is for the non brewing crowed.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and very creamy, chocolate milk colored head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing throughout. Aroma is sweet and rich, milky and dark chocolates with a bit of a malted milk ball essence. A moderate amount of creamy roasts, a bit of a lactose sweetness, and touches of licorice. Flavor is similar. Creamy roasts and a nice mix of dark and milky chocolates that seem a bit accentuated by some lactose additions. A light ashy note, touches of licorice, smooth oats, and a light earthy bitterness as this finishes creamy and dry before leaving lengthy a aftertaste. Medium, smooth body and a soft, creamy, light carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid sweet stout. Rich, creamy, and roasty with a very soft, pleasant body. Nice beer. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2005
On tap at the brewery. This was a really nice smooth stout on nitro, very nice chocolate, smooth and rich, with a light burnt sugar taste in the finish. Very nice weight on the palate and the nitro made this very easy to drink. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2006
This is going to be the beer that I order everytime I go to this brewery. Another big beer as far as flavor but I wish it has a little more alcohol. The flavor is rich and complex and full bodied. Subtle oatmeal flavors with alot of malt character and a rich cocoa creaminess Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 28, 2008
On nitro tap at GVB in McMinnville, OR--Abysmal black body with a great creamy tan head. Sweet, nutty, roasted chocolate, toffee, boozy nose. Creamy, bright, crisp taste. Robust and very enjoyable.

Tap. Very dark pour. Oatmeal, dried fruits, chocolate, malt. Medium to full body with a lot of flavors. Almost creamy finish. Nice AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 27, 2007
The name sure is appealing... But it just doesn’t really size up. Aromas of coffee and chocolate are there but they are disappointingly mild. Flavors are on he sweet side. Body is creamy. Finish is a bit too clean. stchloe (1017) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Very solid, pitch black stout. Sweet without the taste of ham. Served on a nitrogen tap, which could have been better but otherwise good. Slight malty acric taste finishes. AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2003
4/19/03 Tap at brewery. Black, with a tan head, mild malt aroma, with a bit of earthyness. Roasty coffee flavors and traces of chocolate and nuts. Nicely smooth front to back, and all in all, a very pleasent drink. chuckstout (332) - Washington, USA - JUN 29, 2015
Nice toasty beer with a creamy silky texture that was enjoyable off the nitro pour.
