had with dinner the other night (serves was bad again) on tap and then took home a growler.
aroma had chocolate through it with burnt malt.
appearance- black with great head
overall their best beer. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2004
Pours black, almost opaqe yet there was some light coming through. Brownish head and nice sheeting lace. Chocolate and coffee aromas, slight hops. Bam! Big malts and hops take you by surprise. The coffee comes out a lot more in the flavors. Hops are nice and bitter. Thick, creamy body and palate, with a big bitter finish. Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - APR 27, 2008
3/7/08 on draught at the brewpub. Aroma is strong olive note from roast malts (not smoked, although it does have characteristics), followed by sweetness and no hop characteristics. Appearance is nearly black with a moderate off white head. Flavor is sour toasted malts forward followed by sweetness and a great cream character, blending characteristics of cream, dry and American stouts. Mouthfeel is full bodied with a moderate graininess and sour roast finish. Overall, fairly good with nice complexity and blending of styles into something that never comes across as quite an aberration.

On tap at the brewpub w/Gyruke. Deep dark black color with a creamy brown head. The flavor is everything the aroma promises and more, with its thick roasted malt/chocolate flavors. Very Good

On tap at the brewpub. Pretty flavorful stout on a cold evening. Dark chocolate dominated the flavors, touch of bitterness. Easy drinking - small type stout. But enjoyable for sure! douglas88 (9058) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 18, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a pure black color with a medium white head. A strong roasted malt nose, light sweeter chocolates. The flavor is dominated by a nice aggressive roasted flavor, dry and quite nice. Enjoyable, I could drink a ton of this. stevoj (4966) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Nitro tap at the brewpub. Dark brown with ruby glow, velvety smooth creamy head. Body not overly thick and chewy, but fairly slick. Roasty flavor without being overly bitter. Appearance and feel GI a long way with this brew
