4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap in PDX near the "E" gates. One finger of tan head on a pitch black body.
Aroma is coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Great balance and boldness.
The taste is coffee, chocolate and roasted malt with the chocolate really shining through.
Texture is silky with low carbonation and heavy body.
Overall an excellent beer.
Draft at the brewpub. Black in color with a retained tan head. Aroma is loads of coffee, roasty ashy notes, some bitter cocoa. Flavor is nice, coffee really prominent, dry and fairly bitter, just a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Solid offering. kkettler (26) - - NOV 21, 2015

Had on tap at the SE Brewpub. Aroma is roasty and malty with hints of coffee. Flavor is a great match of roasty and burnt flavors and has a ever so slight sweetness to it. Overall this is a great beer, very balanced and easy drinking. mcberko (19001) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2013
On tap at Laurelwood PDX, pours black with a large tan head. Aroma birds out dry coffee and roasted malt. Flavour is similar, with very dry coffee and roast. Fairly bland, but creamy palate. Decent stout.
