rated 5/28/03 Dark, with a small head that diminished quickly, and a bit of a hoppy aroma under the malt. Some hops present in the flavor too, which I find out of place in a Irish Stout. Tasty, but not quite true to style.
Draught @ Rock Bottom Portland:   Nice and black, moderate milky beige head, nice lacing.   Pale roasty nose, very slight lactose like sweetness.   So far seems on par.   Hmmm, on the tongue its a little weak and a bit hoppy, more than I would have thought.   Otherwise your standard pale roastiness and slight lactose sweetness, just on a much lighter scale.   Body and mouthfeel could be bigger, er silkier.   Clean, again on the lighter side.   The pattern is similar to the one I see with these chains, a lighter example of the beer.   Decent, just light. dwedin (249) - Happy Valley, Oregon, USA - APR 21, 2008
Dark brown with a small head. Roasted malt, toasted with a little burntness, slighlty bitter, decent. motelpogo (8031) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 4, 2004

Bottom, Portland. Some OK flavours coming through, but feels a bit watered down, roasty malt, dark chocolate. A bit sweet, and i said, feels watered down.
No head at all. Very hoppy for this style, with some roasted undertones. Similar to the Stovepipe porter. More of a porter than a stout, but still drinkable. A growler for $6, you can't go wrong.
