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 good dry stout. Heavy body with a very strong roast to it. Incredibly enjoyable. Hoppier than a lot of stouts I’ve had. Great bitter finish.

Bottle. Jet black pour with ruby tints and a smallish beige head that leaves some good lacing. Roasty, chocolatey malts and licorice are present in the aroma along with plenty of hops. A hoppier aroma than many other stouts I’ve had. Solidly medium-bodied. Tons of roasty flavors and hops give this some real bitterness. Very drying. A bit of a chocolate/coffee taste along with some sourness.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - APR 17, 2005
Beige head that leaves clumpy suds on the side of the glass. Creamy, roasty aroma. Semi-rich taste with chocolate cream cut by a hop induced sour bite. For a dry stout this is on the creamier side. The dryness comes in at the end providing a clean break between tastes with no residual stickiness.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 14, 2005
Dark brown, medium tan head and lacing. Smells like smoked fruit, hoppy, roasted coffee. Has a medium body for the style, well-balanced with coffee and some chocolate, dry and slightly bitter. Pretty solid all around.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2005
Coal black, creamy tan head. Roasted chocolate, mochachino, caramel, and toffee dominate the aroma. Flavor combines a nice roasted maltiness with a well bittered back end to keep balance throughout. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, drying, roasty bittersweet finish. A good choice for a session stout...

Another winner from this fabulous brewery! Wonderful assorment of Cholcoate, amd coffee. Dry with a great hops flavor.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2005
Nearly opaque; medium-sized dark brown head; some lacing. Aroma is roasty. Flavor is roasty, with a little chocolate; very bitter finish. Medium-thick body; lingering coffee/roast and hops. A pretty lame stout: Too roasty and bitter to pair well with food, and, frankly, just plain cliché; nothing special here.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 18, 2005
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.

AustinMilbarge (681) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 17, 2005
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.

rhapsouldize (174) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 12, 2005
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.
