This was the first beer to make me start associating really creamy stouts/porters with meat products. raphael (1291) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Not a big stout drinker, partly due to my hop addiction, but loved this one. aroma of licorice, roast malt, prune and pine. opaque darkest brown with thin tan head. flavor of roasted malt combines well with the hop edge (still advantage tot he roast, notes of coffee and molasses. seamles int he mouth, easy drinking. egajdzis (6730) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Poured an opaque black color with a small, tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast, smokey, charred wood, cocoa, light raisin, and a bit of fig. Taste of roasted malts, smoke, vanilla beans, light chocolate, and a dry, bitter finish. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2008

These lucky lab places in Portland are really neat. Picknick tables and good brew. This stout is rich and iteresting with loads of liquorice and roasted flavor. Finished with a great coffee flavor and slick mouthfeel without being too sweet.
