Typical stout...but for an AZ beer...good stuff! Black pour, tan head. Roasty and toasty aroma with some light cocoa, coffee and ashy notes. Flavor is very roasty, ash, tar, light hops. Interesting and pretty good! Ibrew2or3 (8860) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Poured up on tap at Papago with deep darkness with thin mahogany edges supporting a dark mocha head. The aroma offers up big notes of rich sweet chocolate, sweet malts, some molasses and highly roasted maltiness. The taste is the same. Wow, I get a rich yummy mix of chocolate, sweet malts and molasses all playing up against bold nearly burnt roasted malty goodness. This is a delicious stout, holy smokes. Nice job.

Nice and smooth
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. beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - MAY 1, 2003
A pretty good stout from the high desert. dec 2002
Dark brown color. Large head. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. A full-bodied stout. Malts are deeply roasted, chocolate, coffee and slightly sweet. Nice texture, falls just a little short of velvety, but very nice. Hints of vanilla and cherries as it warms. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

draft at the Green Room (formerly Mogollon brew pub) - Pours black with a minimal tan head. It smells of dark roast malt and coffee. It has a full, dark roast malt flavor with big coffee notes and a hint of smoke. It’s full bodied and has a lightly bitter finish. Very good. FlacoAlto (4221) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 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.

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. hellbilly (3306) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2011

dark. black pour with a light brown head and drippy trails of foam.
the nose is very roasty... full of barley, chocolate, toasted nuttiness, cola, molasses and cream.
the flavor is the same only there are some green hoppy notes poking through and a little tartness on the finish. the palate is a touch sweet but really doesn’t get in the way since the body is just medium and stays far away from thick or cloying.
simple, delicious and well executed. 8/4.5/8/4.5/16/4.1+
Poured @ GTBF. Amazing chocolate presence in this beer. Aroma is of cocoa powder, chocolate covered coffee bean, and Hershey syrup. Appearance is a little disappointing...translucent mahogany pour with a small khaki head. Palate also somewhat thin. Flavor, however, is solid. Rich dark chocolate, caramel malt, and char. Nice beer.
