COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"As Big as it is Smooth." A black, robust, full-bodied stout with a creamy, bittersweet chocolate-like, roasted coffee palate. We pour our stout with a "nitro-tap" to accentuate the malt and create a thick long lasting head and creamy body. This stout was named in honor of the Wild Hog in all of us. 37 IBU.

patricks110 (2456) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 5, 2015
Very sweet and overly dry with totally milk chocolate malt. Pours completely dark and opaque with a thin tan head. The first sip is too sweet and malty with milk chocolate, light cofffee ground and dry, robust malt. The finish is dry and mildly astringent.

4 oz. draft at the brewery. Very prototypical stout, only 4.5% ABV per the blackboard at the brewery. Nothing particularly interesting about it, but clean and balanced.

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Served on tap at Maui Brewing Brewpub. The appearance is a deep cola brown with some nice creamy tan head. The aromas are bittersweet chocolates, medium roasted malts. The flavors are a little tame in intensity. Bittersweet chocolate, medium roast malts. The mouth is medium bodied. Not too bad of a brew.

Dark brown pour with tan head and lace. Toasted malt and coffee on the aroma. Large coffee, roasted malt, and a good malt bitter. Thin and watery with good carbonation. Nice beer.
