COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Has a six pack from Holmes. This is a good stout. Nice coffee and toasted malt aroma with similar taste. Good balance of malt and flavor. Just a good solid stout

Pours black with a low lacing of mocca head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, smoke, leather, wood. Taste is balanced vanilla and chocolate, light molasses, with more coffee bitterness coming through in the finish. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cantabrian (776) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 18, 2014
Nice and ruby black in the glass, this beer has an aroma of roasted coffee and a box of cherry chocolate sitting next to a boiling copper pan of kidney beans. The flavour is roasted coffee again and azuki bean paste, bitter chocolates, a bit sour to start with, and I get too much soy sauce and vegemite, which makes me turn the arrow towards a foreign stout type of drink. The finish is reasonably oily and a bit of booze does come through. Not unforgetable, but it is overall a pleasant stout.

scotchzombie (316) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Pours dark brown and passing a glimmer of garnet in the light. Very large and creamy mocha head that settles for awhile to a finger or two. Aroma is roast chocolate malts and baking spices. This beer is quite active and bubbly on the palate. Taste is slightly burnt coffee and dark roasted malts and grain with a touch of cream. There is plenty of balancing hops and residual bitterness to finish. Quite a distinctive taste palate I think. Excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

P: Black body with cocoa colored micro bubbles. Small amount of micro bubble lacing. S: Aroma reminds me of old coffee in those round convenient store coffee pots. Roasted salted cashews, hints of cocoa, wheat toast and tobacco. T/M: Follows the nose with a super roasted profile, cocoa, toast, coffee and tobacco. Prickly carbonation in a medium body. Finishes dry. O: A solid stout offering but not a crowd pleaser. Nothing stands out to really bring me back to this. Glad I tried it but probably won’t revisit.
