Black as the darkest night, rich as the most decadent dessert, Terminator is for the true stout lover. This is a full bodied and flavor packed ale which draws it's robust complexity from kiln-baked specialty grains. Look for a wide array of toasted, chocolate, nutty and coffee-like flavors in every pint! The devoted swear by it, and it remains one of our top selling ales year after year.

Well, you can say just about whatever you want about Terminator--theres no recipe per se. Instead, the dozen or so brewers at McMenamins pubs get to put whatever spin on it they like. We all have a beer that turned us, though, and this is mine. It was the mid-80s and I was not yet 21 (corrupt barkeep). Back then, they called it a virtue that the beers had batch-to-batch variability, something I couldnt imagine the Bud boys saying. And going from Bud to this--mind boggling. Plus, points should be given for the name, which is among the coolest beer names on earth.

Nice malty smell and taste. Hints of chocolate and nuts. Not too heavy tasting. Slightly fizzy, but otherwise a really nice Stout. (K)

Black as obsidian pour from the draft. Thin creamy head. Full bodied smoooth brew. The lingering finish reminds one of roasty grains, nuts, and bitter dark chocolate.

Dark with a tan head. Roasted malt, chocolate, light coffee, vanilla, a bit of dark fruit underneath. A very solid stout.

Kind of Guinessey, but a little more rich and milky. A bit like Camden Ink Stout from London - I wonder if Camden was deliberately copying this?

penstemon (224) - Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2016
Almost black with a tan head. Aromas of char and coffee. Taste is lots of coffee, slight nut, char, and dark roasted malt. Medium body, fairly low carb.

Sarlacc83 (2132) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Tap. A: Very black with a thin creme head. N: Char, roast, big malt profile with tones of chocolate, vanilla, and some nuttiness. Light earth. T: Substantial sweetness with a light balancing bitterness. M: Medium body, creamy carb, light alcohol. O: Much prefer the coffee version of this. Its decent but I would prefer it drier and more bitter.

Draft pour pint at the McMenamins Crystal Ballroom. O.A.R! O.A.R! O.A.R! Traveling around to see their tour has the fortunate consolation of trying new beers in each city. Brewery owned music venues will hopefully catch on quick. Pours black with a thick tan foam head. Roasted malt aroma. Matching flavor with a rich chocolate finish. Not bad at all. Had myself a brew, relax for a delicate few.
