This big, roasty stout takes flavor to the extreme. We aren’t afraid to use plenty of rich roasted barley and a mountain of hops to give this full-bodied stout that little extra something you’ve been looking for in a beer.

On tap at the brewery. Comes almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and some hops. Very nice.

Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is chocolate, dried dark fruits and molasses. Taste is heavy roasted malts, leather and tobacco up front - somewhat different than the aroma. There’s a hoppy bitterness that really kicks in for the mid and the long finish. This one covers everything and is one of the better stouts I’ve had. It’s almost like a stout blended with a black IPA.

I did open and pour this little on the warm side. Appearance is quite nice with a very long-lasting head and lots of fine lace. Aroma is Malt & toasted barley. This is kind of an odd one as the flavor is fairly bland for this stout and with a little medicinal character. Body is good. Like to try this one again a little colder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This pours a dark brown/black color with a decent, foamy head. The aroma is filled with cocoa, coffee, and toasted malts. The flavor is well-balanced and smooth. It’s a stout that isn’t too heavy or too light. Smooth malts and cocoa are very evident. This finishes a with a bit of chalky, malt after taste.

Trasfer from BA review from 6-19-12 - Served on tap in a 10 oz chalice glass Appearance – Pours a black color with thin brown head. The head faded fast leaving almost no lacing. Smell – The smell is a wonderful mix of dark chocolate, coffee and roasted malt. Mixed with these aromas are lighter aromas of some hops as well as a light toasted nut aroma. Taste – The taste begins with some of the chocolate detected in the nose. This is mixed with a roasted malt flavor. Together these two, with a light sweet flavor create the initial taste of roasty milk chocolate. As the taste advances however, the sweetness and some of the chocolate flavor begin to fade as tastes of espresso come to the tongue. The bitterness increases at the expense of the chocolate flavor as the taste moves to the end eventually finishing, when combined with a light nutty and more earthy hop flavor, to leave a roasted bitter flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The beer is just a little bit above average thickness with the carbonation level being just below average. The lower carbonation is very fitting as it is a beer that is made to coat the tongue. The body however could use a slight boost in chewiness to really accentuate the roasted flavors. Overall – This is a pretty good stout. It has a very nice flavor profile as well as a very nice aroma. Only thing holding it back is the lack of an lacing (which really can be pardoned) as well as the somewhat too thin of a body. Overall though it is quite nice.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Tom L. Black with bubbly tan head. Cow dung that quickly changes to roasty aroma, then evolves to sunflower seeds saltiness and grain. Salty, grainy, rich taste. Smooth, very roasty finish and medium-bodied.

A nice solid stout. Dark cola pour with a bit of a rocky off white brownish head. Nice roasted coffee notes in the nose and on the tongue. Full roasted malt flavor profile with a bit of hops lingering at the end. Quite nice.

12 ounce bottle. Opaque black liquid. Small tan head disappears quickly. Rich roasted malt aroma. Sweet cocoa malt flavor. Notes of roasted nuts and resiny hops. Somewhat smooth and very flavorful. Finish is hoppy and cloying.

Black with red tints. Thin light brown collar. Nose is roasted malts, roasted oats, chocolate, and lots of licorice. Highly bitter with caramel, licorice, chocolate, roasted malt and oats. A bit thin but the aggressive happiness overcomes that part. Nice stout though

Good dark pour w/ a big tan head that leaves nice lacing. The aroma is bold & roasty. The taste is a touch thin but has decent coffee notes. Pretty good stout overall.
