Thanks Jesse! Zonker pours blackish brown w/ just a shallow froth that goes away just as fast as it came. All that remains is a little isalnd of spatter. Aromas of dark chocolate and mild roasts. Full nectar w/ ample residual effers creating a wonferful velvety texture. Nice! Big and malty w/ a moderate roast component balanced by soft, fruity, dark chocolates. A mild hop profile helps out a bit also. Life is like a box of chocolates say’s Forest. If they all turned out Zonkers I’d be a happy Gnome. The finish is long w/ lingering roasted cocoa and a touch of sweet. Overall: you were right Jesse, this stuff is amazing. Very rich yet well balanced. SPDickerman (1315) - 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. prosqtor (408) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 5, 2007
Enjoyed with aofoxxy in Columbia SC (sort of like a dorm room is right!). Oily appearance, and downright frothy. Preamble to a good night with a new friend. Featured a smooth satisfying finish, and left me wanting more, more, more. From a bottle. ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - MAR 29, 2003
Rich roasted nose of chocolate, medicine, caramel, oats, and flowers. The brew pours a dirty motor oil black. The solid brown creamy head is fully lasting with good lacing. The bittersweet chocolaty flavor is excellent with a light acidity and a long bitter full finish. The chewy body is syrupy and soft, the finish feels clean. Outstanding.

This beer is roasted deliciousness! Incredibly black pour with a fluffy caramel head. Roasted malts, bitter chocolate and toasted marshmallows on the nose. Nice bitterness comes out in the flavor with a lingering burnt malt flavor and hop presence. Similar to St Ambroise but without the velvet. Delicious!
