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.

Very mice, I could drink it anytime, kind of stout. Efficient roasted aroma. Mostly black pour with crimson on the edges. Strong burnt malt flavor, some bitterness, with a long, dry finish. A little thin, but very drinkable. Needs more creaminess and body to make it great, but good otherwise.

bottle: Dark, hardwood color. Head is a little creamy. Lots of coffee and roastiness in the flavor. Reasonably viscous. Another decent offering from Avery. I think this would go well either with a steak or after dinner.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a dark mahogany with tight tan head. Nice, sweet aroma of chocolate and roast. Flavor is sweet with notes of mocha. Well-balanced. Doesn’t really taste too much like a dry stout--tastes more like a standard stout to me. Better than I thought it would be.

BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Bottle. Pours a burgundy-black color with minimal tan head. Has a rich malty aroma -- heavy milk chocolate, some nutty roastiness, and fruit aromas too. More roastiness in the flavor, but the sweetish malt flavor is predominant. The hops show up mid-taste and work toward a good roasty/bitter dry finish. Tasty.

Ah....my go-to dry stout. Killer coffee and roasted nut nose. Pours standard with a rocky tan head and black/ruby color. Flavor leaves the perfect roasted coffee layer on your palate for the duration of the experience.

A really really dark beer with very little head.Nose is very nice here: alot of what seems to be chocolate,coffee and burnt toffee.Taste is complex with a mouthwatering gulp of roasted smokey flavor of Chocolate and coffee,maybe Chicory. Nice.Thanks Chris.

flemdawg (558) - Rowlett, Texas, USA - FEB 23, 2005
Almost totally black, but with some deep ruby edges, a nice looking tan head and some decent lacing. Roasted coffee, malts, carmel, some milk chocolate all make a very sniffable aroma. Lots of hops in the taste, more than expected actually, along with roasted malts, coffee, and hints of bitter chocolate, and carmel. Lingering bitterness on the palate. Recomended.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 22, 2005
Black with a thick creamy, yet slightly frothy head. Great lacing. The head has these huge bubbles in it as well. Aromas of dark malts. Roasty and bitter coffee. Some soy and some lactose. Bitter hops and chocolate. The flavors are very roasty with some chocolate and a hint of mocha. Lactose, but no soy. Bitter hops. Finishes that way too with the linger bitterness and roast.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 21, 2005
Deep dark brown with hints of garnet. Light tan head, puffy, mostly lasting. Roasty, cocoa, coffee, pleasantly rich in body, dry, crisp bitter hop finish. Very nicely balanced, I always enjoy brews from these guys. Pleanty of hops, this is a great session beer! Great finesse; big beer without being too big.
