5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Nearly black, well black but with dark brown hues on the edge.   Large frothy beige head, strong carbonation, spotty lacing.   Coffee up front, roasted malt aroma on the back.   Spritzy on the tongue, roasty, pale coffee, finishes very quickly.   Not a heavy beer by any means, very bubbley.   Could stand to be a bit maltier.   Not thin, just seems a bit watery for a stout.   Soft roasted malts and coffee linger.   Also seems a little grainy, well minor graininess anyway.   Tiz okay, wished it was a little heavier/smoother.   A little too fizy.

Callared 6-8 months. Cola black with a finger of mocha coloured head. Aroma of dark chocolate covered coffee beans, espresso, cocoa. Bitter coffee up front (think cold blackcoffee), cereal grains, oats, dark chocolate. A bit thinner than I would like but the carbonation is right. The taste kind of reminds me of that smell you get when you walk into an organic grocery store.

Bomber. Bought at Super 1 in CDA, Idaho. Pours inky black with brown edges and a one-finger beige head that fades into a collar and skiff of foam. Aroma is a bit spicy--like chili beer spicy; from the coffee or one of those obscure grains, maybe. Taste is sweet and spicy with a dry bitter finish. Carbonation is average, body is medium. Great beer.

Wow, poured from a 22oz from malt & vine. did you ever need an after dinner desert beer? well here it is!! strong scents of coffee and chocolate right from the pour and immediate tastes of the coffee. turned this coffee, i mean beer into something different. at first I wasnt s sure this is where I wanted the stout to go, but was impressed how powerful they made this. great job

On tap at hub with Carla. Pours deep brown with tan foam. Smells bitter of roasted malts and espresso. Feels very smooth and tastes heavily of coffee and a bit of chocolate and bananas.

Nice rich malty stout - stands out in the fairly mediocre offerings of the other styles. Well done.

Interesting bottle picked up in vancouver. A lot of interesting grains that yield a cerial of tastes, yet it doesn’t all integrate together. Expresso and coffee so if you are a coffee drinker you probably liked this better. Dark and lacey despite a small head. big roast, above average mouthfeel of course. In a word, roasted grains.

4.5
Cybercat (5835) - Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Aroma has tones of semi-sweet chocolate and fine roast coffee, with a very strong smoky overtone and a hint of toffee. It pours a deep, warm sable with a thick, if not overly persistent, tan head that leaves some good lacing. Smoky flavor has roast coffee and woody tones with nutty, chocolate and toffee hints. Texture is smooth and fizzy, a teensy on the watery side but still more than acceptable. If ever you are in Oregon, look for this one!

Cask and draft tasted side by side at BikeBar, courtesy of staff - thanks! Aroma of chocolate !! and burnt espresso. Taste is like strong coffee. Low carbonation. Needs more body. Not a great cask choice, and served too cold. But overall, OK.
