COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, roasty stout takes flavor to the extreme. We arenít afraid to use plenty of rich roasted barley and a mountain of hops to give this full-bodied stout that little extra something youíve been looking for in a beer.

MIBRomeo shared this with me. It looks very dark brown/black with a tan, bubbly head. It had nice lacing. The aroma was of high quality ground coffee with a LONG lasting aroma. (I hate beers that the aroma dies in 10 seconds). The palate was VERY disappointing. It was like water. Almost thinner than water (if thatís possible). It was lively, but very disappointing. The flavor is of coffee and a bit like how bandaids smell. Not very complex. Disappointing here too.

a deep dark black color w/ a thick full tan head that dissapated fairly quickly but left a nice lacing on the glass. the first scent was strongly of coffee a solid roasted chocolate blend w/ a nice malty backbone and a lighty hops. the palate was lacking, no real body but somewhat acidic and carbonated. tastes like a dry stout w/ a semi sweet bitter chocolate flavor and coffee. overall itís a decent beer but the lack of body was dissapointing.

Bottle. Deep black colored. Light brown head fades out and leaves pretty good lacing. Roasted and burnt grain aroma. Coffee for sure in smell. Medium bodied. Fairly smooth. A little astringent to me. Decent.

UPDATED: FEB 4, 2005 Very dark clear brown, almost black with ruby edges and a quickly fading light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, milk chocolate and citric piney hops. Taste has strong notes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and a significant dosage of citrus/pine hops. Moderately sweet. Roasty, lightly bitter finish. Medium soft body with subltle carbonation - needs more body. No lacing or head retention. Overall, solid stuff.

bottle. pours a deep, dark chocolate color with an extraordinary head. as I started drinking this one I wasnít sure if it was trying to be a sweet stout or a dry stout. it was kind of in between. but as it warmed the flavors seemed to blend and as I finished this brew it was quitw nice and smooth.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2005 Unfortunatly this bottle was frozen once before I was able to drink it After thawing out, I was still able to enjoy the huge roast coffee aroma. Plenty of roast and chocolate in the flavor. I can only believe that the freezing didnít do any real damage to this beer. Hop finish realy cleans up the finish. Quite a nice stout.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Bottle: Black with a good-sized small-sized tan head. Huge roasted nose, with coffee, chocolate, and some hops. Full bodied with a dry ending, starts lightly bitter and ends a bit more bitter before ending dry.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 13, 2005
Iím getting chocolate and cherries in the aroma, a hint of hops at the start and plenty of scrumptious roasted coffee beans in the finish. Well balanced, start to finish, and the coffee finish stays with you. Great mouthfeel too - nice and smooth. Nice after dinner beer. Iím really starting to like this brewery all around.

The nose is full of coffee and full of roastiness. Kinda has the aroma of my grandmothers mobile home, though. Maybe cinnamon in there or some kinda weird spiciness. Mostly opaque dark dark brown with a nice frothy light brown head. Quite roasty throughout finishing with a slight astringent bitterness with more roasties to finish. Rather thin, and certainly one dimensional.

hotstuff (4403) - Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2005
Bottle. Small tan smooth head that fully diminished, sparse lacing, fine-large sized bubbles, carbonation, opaque, and a dark brown hue. Aroma was roasty, coffee, malty, and some smokiness. Flavor was coffee, smokey, roasty, and malty. Tingly mouthfeel rather than a smooth one for this beer style. Just an average dry stout IMO.
