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.

Not bad, but I prefer a sweeter stout than a dry stout. Great color, nice foamy white head, and so-so aroma.

Bottle. Pour dark black, no head, seemed a little flat. Aroma bitterly malty. My taste buds must have been out fishing, because I really did not pick up much taste, of course it was malty, but nothing unique or worth remebering. I think a re-rate is in order in the future.

Aroma is bittersweet chocolate, coffee, alcohol and some dark fruits. Seems like a bitter porter to me. Dry roasted bitterness up front with a smooth chocolately finish. I wish I could get this stuff in Buffalo.

Pours with a one-finger brown head that fades slowly and leaves a good lace. Totally black color. Medium carbonation and heavy bodied. Nose is roasted coffer/chocolate. Starts with a chocolate/coffee flavor and finishes with a nice malt/hop balance. It’s an Irish dry stout but it is not as dry as a Guinness. $1.65 for a 12 oz bottle; found at Vintage Cellar, Blacksburg, VA

Head was sparce. Poured very dark and appeared to be clear. Body was thin, light, and weak. Flavor was bitter with light malt and a matching aroma.

I really thought this could have had more roasted flavor. There was an unpleasant licorice/ alcohol flavor at the end that brought this down a little. A little thin bodied, but not too bad.

Definitely in the dry stout category. Lacks the creaminess of its Irish cousin. Big is not a word I’d use to describe it. The flavor was a little thin, but was suprisingly complex (bitter, roasted, woody).
