Poured from growler into belgian glass. Aroma is a little underwelming for the style. Picking up a little chocolate, and a bit of roasty malt. not seeing the fruitiness true to foreign stout style. Appearance spot on: dark, opaque color. Nice tan head with good retention. Nice, bold flavor, with big roasty malt presence. Finishes pretty dry. Moderate bitterness, with no fruitiness or diacetyl. Palate: medium body with a bit of creaminess. No presence of alcohol noticed. Very good example of the style overall.
On tap at the brewpub in Jackson WY.
Opaque black body with an excellent very durable tan head.
Aroma: light spicy hops, dark toast, licorice and alcohol esters.
Flavor: moderate strength and high bitterness for style.
Full body and medium carbonation. Quick3Beers (1204) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - APR 22, 2017
Pours a black with khaki colored head from a can. Served a little cold, not much aroma, flavor is a heavy roastiness, dark toasted whole grain bread, nice medicinal bitterness. Good beer. jeffman52 (16) - Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2017
I went Ski’ing a couple of weeks ago in Wyoming and thus I had to try the local beers. This was one that I really liked. Zonker Stout. Very popular in the region and I can see why. Good lacing, nice head that slowly disappears, not overpowering but very tasty, a solid stout. I had it my first day in Jackson Hole and had it every day while there. I also brought six back in my luggage to enjoy when I got home.
If you are in Wyoming, give this one a try!!! SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2017
Pours pitch black with a large brown head. Smells roasty with hints of coffee. Taste is bitter, roast and coffee. Medium-bodied with a smooth texture and average mouth-carbonation, Snake River Zonker Stout finishes with a lingering semisweet bitterness. Jow (3899) - New York, USA - JAN 6, 2017

Nearly black pour with a tan head. The aroma has roasted, dark chocolate and coffee with a faint touch of vanilla. It has creamy body with somewhat flat carbonation. The taste is dry roasted with sweet undertones.dough, smroush (277) - Michigan, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Aroma is first and foremost roasted coffee, with some chocolate also. The hops are prominent enough to provide some balance with a fairly generalized bitterness.
The color is black with a small to average light brown head.
This is a somewhat sweet beer which I think works well with the roasted coffee and chocolate. The bitterness is rather generalized (at least as far as I can tell) but is pronounced enough to nicely balance the malt.
The body is medium to full, a bit more on the full side. The texture is oily/creamy; the carbonation average and the finish is long with the roasted coffee, some caramel and chocolate and ending with the bitterness.
Overall I like this beer quite a bit. The sweetness works real well with the roasted coffee and chocolate and the bitterness provides a nice balance. zoucrew102 (1818) - - SEP 11, 2016
Can, thanks Russ! Rich, roasted barley aroma with notes of chocolate and coffee. Pours dark brown, almost black, with a large light brown head that has excellent retention but very little lacing. Starts with roasted barley dominating the palate with a little bit of chocolate sweetness. Finishes smooth, but a bit dry with roasted coffee overtaking the palate with a bit of the chocolate remaining. A lot of coffee on the finish, but still a very nice stout. salvaticas (728) - - JUL 4, 2016

Can, from dresden-- thanks Steve! Pours a viscous motor-oil black with a finely bubbled brown head. Rich roast, touch of molasses sweetness, hints of espresso and ash. Velvety and smooth, balanced bitterness. Very enjoyable.
