UPDATED: OCT 17, 2014 Sampler at Chucks. Black with tan lacing. Too much whiskey but the base impy is nice, not sweet, well attenuated. All whiskey in flavor. End is bitter and dry leaf booze.Alcohoarder (34) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2009

2008 from 22 oz bottle. Restrained nose -- not much there. Still the same even after it warmed up a bit. Nice balance and very smooth. Couldn’t really detect the wood on it. Bitter finish. Not too bad, but probably not quite worth the hype. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 8, 2009
@Noogfest High5 Thanks decaturstevo-22oz bottle-pours a brown ring for a head and black color. Aroma is dark malt/oat-molasses. Taste is dark malt/oat-molasses with lots of malt bite, oak, secondary spice hops. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 4, 2009
UPDATED: OCT 10, 2013 Bottle. Rich dark chocolate chips and tangy oak first appear in the nose, followed by some sweetened coffee grounds and chocolate cookies. Roast heavy coffee and semi-sweet chocolate chips appear up front. The oreo cookie cracker flavor is both surprising and delicious. Dense fudge and cake play with an overt American oak dryness - a dryness that I usually tend not to like - but right here it works in ways that it rarely does in other oak aged stout. I admit I’m a fan of this one. Subtle brandy sweetness shows up in the finish, and while I’d put this one in the like category given like/dislike, there’s a small amount of what seems like isovaleric acid (I’ve had this bottle for about 6 months). shigadeyo (3739) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

4/07/2011: Pike Entire Wood Ages Stout... Aroma: Vineous, yeasty, touch of chocolate, infected? Appearance: Very deep brown color; huge fluffy brown head. Flavor: Roasted malts, chocolate, a hint of red wine. Palate: Medium body, VERY carbonated - TOO carbonated. Overall: Definitely seems infected, but is still farily drinkable - a testiment to what this beer must have been like originally.
1 pint 6 fl. oz. waxed bottle (9.5 ALC./VOL., IBU 60, OG 1.092) shared by alexsdad06. Thanks Brad! Rating #148 for this beer.
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of sweet and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of both sweet and roasted malt, , leading to a dry roasted finish. Crel (37) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - FEB 10, 2010
Sweet aroma that reminds me of bubblegum ice cream. Jet black with a long lasting head. There is too much foam. Extremely strong alcohol favour with flavors of oak and bourbon being prominent. The palate on this beer is terrible, it practically evaporates on the tongue because it is so overcarbonated. There is definitely something strange going on with this beer.

aroma of coffee, roast, and wood, but there’s no sweetness to my nose, so I’m a little bit frightened. Tastes of coffee and wood with a big astringent/acidic sensation that I’ve come to expect from Pike. Medium bodied, and too watery for the beer its supposed to be. Bleh! rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 13, 2009
Tasted blind. Nose is vanilla, some apple, coffee. Flavor is big caramel, a little almost buttery coffee, malt. Lingering cocoa in the finish, dark fruits, roasted cherries. MeadMe (1661) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - FEB 12, 2010
A: Pours dark black with a mocha colored head. Good retention and some chunky lace.
S: Roasty malt, caramel, and dark chocolate.
T: Wow sour... this one is infected. Beneath the infection you can still pick up dark malt, chocolate, and tart dark fruit.
M: Medium in body, the tartness from the infection is overthetop and as you can expect ruins the beer.
D: Nah, would love to rerate with a good bottle.
