This is STOUT beer, not for the meek! Hickory Stick Stout is a whole- lot-a beer full of malt. English pale and crystal malts start this beer quickly followed by big time chocolate and black patent malts. Tons of Cascade hops go into Hickory Stick Stout to round out the malt character. Hickory Stick Stout is a very robust stout, bursting with flavor!

Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 14, 2008
Mini Keg courtesy of Degarth. Pours up dark darkness with nice frothy – creamy mocha head. The aroma is of roasted to burnt malts then into ashy-ness. The taste is much the same with highly roasted malts that head toward burnt malts and some hints of coffee. Really roasty brew but far from an Imperial Stout in style.

Mini-keg from Degarth. Opaque body, quickly disappearing head. Mild chocolate aroma. Flavor is somewhat hoppy and roasty with notes of bitter coffee and a thin palate. Decent, but I agree with Degarth that this really isn’t an Imperial.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2008 Mini-keg, courtesy Degarth. Pours a dark reddish brown, with a fizzy white head and wet lacing abound. Caramel maltiness in the nose, with floral hops and some chocolate. Smooth malty flavors, tender caramel...subdued compared to the aroma. Soft and easy to drink, and finishes malty.

Tmoney99 (14481) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Draft sample at Knoxville Brew Jam. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted coffee and chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture. Medium roasted bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of long duration. My expectations where met.

on tap-pours a light brown head and black color. Aroma is medium malt, secondary hops. Taste is dark malt-coffee, equal secondary hops bitterness, acidic. OK carbonation. Occasional

Draught at Union Jack’s. This is another in a series of beers I have had a million times but have yet to rate. The pint pours a black amber with one finger of well-lacing tan head. The aroma is roasty with hints of caramel. The flavor is cold coffee, a little bit of maple syrup, and a fireplace finish. There is ambient hop bitterness throughout. Not very creative, but a good solid stout.

aracauna (3606) - Georgia, USA - JUL 18, 2006
Black, but not opaque. The head is a light khaki that takes a while to fade. The aroma is surprisingly hoppy, some sort of c-hop dominant. Good coffee and dark chocolate. Good mix of fresh hop flavor and roasty malt flavors. Yum.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 6, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. dark, dark brown, red around the edges. Almost opaque. Brown head that laced the glass. Attractive flowery hop nose. Light roasty malt flavor dominated by perfumy tasting hops. Good stout.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Draft at Sunspot Restaurant in Knoxville. Very black in the glass with a frothy tan head that mostly lasted and left good lacing. Sweet malt aroma. The flavor was of chocolate, coffee, roasted, and a slight hoppy bitter. Medium to full body that leaves a slight bitter aftertaste.
