On tap @ 1702 - Pours a dark brown color with a small creamy light tan head. Nice lacing. Aroma is light coffee and roasted malt. Flavor is light burnt malt, coffee, and chocolate. Has a lingering roasted malt aftertaste. Medium body. A good beer. Too bad this beer doesn’t see greater distribution. Headbanger (4020) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2007
12oz bottle-a dark black body with a nice tan head and an aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and sweetness. Taste of the same with a little watered down. Aroma gave you something to look forward to and it did’t leave you dissappointed. Nice tasting brew. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Deep black used motor oil color. Slight head even with an aggressive spew. Smells of roasted malts and mildly of coffee -also has a musky , wet cedar wood scent. Taste is of strong black coffee with a dash of toasty malts .Very little sweetness to be found here . Only a medium body, it has an excellent smooth mouthfeel. Slightly bitter blackened malt finish.
A pretty good stout from the high desert. dec 2002 Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Color is full-on black, with a brief, short brown head. Aroma is a delight, roasty and bitter, notes of anise, pepper, dark rum, and richly roasted coffee.
Once up into my lips, though, it’s disappointment time. Nothing’s happening. Not bad, but blah. An "okay" stout. Small hops, big malt, little texture, and very mild flavor. Extraordinarily easy to drink, but leaves nothing to remember it by. A pity that there was so much promise in the nose, left unfulfilled by the actual flavor, or lack therof.

Bottle. Dark brown color with a light brown head. A nice chocolate and coffee flavor with a roasted malt aroma. Thanks to Tim for bringing this back from his road trip.

Very generous roasted malt aroma. Very inviting. Some sweetness in the nose to, as if a milk stout. Color is a deep dark brown, definitely not black. Mild carbonation, decent tan head. Flavor has a nice malty roastiness followed up with a sweetness. Similar to the aroma, if I didn't know better, I would say there was lactose added as in Sweet or Milk Stouts (i.e. Mackeson's). Lots of chocolate in the flavor profile as well. Very little hops, but that's ok, the roasted malt dries out the finish nicely. Finish is slightly sweet and not overly long. Good full body and mouthfeel. Overall, this is a very fine stout, although a bit sweeter than I expected, especially for a beer labeled as a dry stout.

Bottle. Very dark color, some brown highlights. Average size creamy light brown head, thin layer lasted throughout. Roasted grains, a bit of coffee and chocolate in the nose. Malty flavor, hints of chocolate, with a touch of hops to finish it out. Rich and creamy mouthfeel, a little dry on the finish. Pretty standard, but very good. dankitydancer (58) - Arizona, USA - NOV 14, 2003

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2003 This is a rating for the bottled Apache Trout Stout. This beer is a deep black color, when held up to the light it is very clear and shows a deep brown color. It is lightly carbonated with a tan-brown creamy head that dissipates quickly. There are aromas of roasted malt and a strong bready/ cracker, and coffee aroma. Quite a good beer with flavor all over the place. Tastes of burnt caramel, a strong malty roast character, coffee, and a hint of sweetness. It is very smooth tasting, it coats ones tongue with a full body. This beer finishes and is balanced by a nice light bitterness at the end. A great representation of the stout style for Arizona.

Great looking opaque stout that is backed by a rich and cocoa-like malt presence. Very chewy and malty. I was pleasantly suprised by this beer.
