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.

Only for those initiated to stouts. Almost black, a little red - lovely appearance. Unfortunately a poorly lasted mediocre head, but still has a nice mouthfeel and a wonderful chocolate/coffee aroma. Maybe a little too lively, but definitely nicely bitter and moderate length finish.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - MAY 6, 2004
This is what java tastes like on the rare occasions when I have a cup in the morning. Satisfying yet somehow foreign to my tastebuds. The nose is bitter roast and maybe some molasses. Mouthfeel is rather thin. Taste is like a decent coffee. Great lacing and pleasantly roasted aftertaste. Can’t knock it, but I can’t truly love it either, not being a coffee lover. Many thanks to Beaver for this brew! =)

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2004
This opaque black brew pours an average sized creamy brwon head that gives off a toasted/nutty molasses aroma. The flavor is complex and richly malty with a slightly burnt roasted malt aftertaste. This full bodied Stout is well done.

zach8270 (3217) - Henrietta, New York, USA - APR 27, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2008 [bottle] Pours a dark black with a little red around the edges of the glass and a very thin and quickly dissipating tan head. Roasted chocolate aroma with possibly a tiny hint of nutmeg? Strong coffee taste at first with a slight hint of chocolate and a bitter coffee finish. A bit on the watery side for a stout. Thanks to MarkR for another quality brew.

egajdzis (5194) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2004
Poured a dark reddish black with a one inch thick tan puffy head and nice lacing. Sweet, roasted, chocolate aroma. Chocolate, coffee, roasted taste with a rather average mouthfeel. Nothing all that special.

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 10, 2004
Poured chestnut brown with a medium light tan head. Toasty, cheerio aroma with a touch of caramel. Bitter roasted malt flavor leading to dry chocolate, finishing with bitter hops. A touch of sweetness developed as the beer warmed. Rather thin-bodied. Not as good as their porter.

Ida7999 (105) - Milford, Massachusetts, USA - APR 8, 2004
dark opaque brown with some red hues, thin white head, excellent roasted malt aroma, coffee, burnt, with some hop overtones, light hints of chocolate and smoke; flavor is very nice, bitter and burnt, roasted malt, coffee, good dosage of hops, a bit light on the texture, but overall a very good beer

flutetokill (523) - Fresno, California, USA - APR 7, 2004
Dark opaque brownish black color with a large tan head. Sour lactose and roasted coffee aroma. Roasted coffee, chocolate, and floral hops flavors. A little too watery. Thin feel with a very dry finish.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - APR 7, 2004
Deep, dark brown (maybe black) color, opaque, with a a large frothy beige head. Heavy roasted, bitter chocolate, floral hoppy tones in the aroma. The flavor was nice and full with floral/cirtusy hops, roasted chocolate (bitter not sweet) and a slight coffee character. The feel was a little too thin...very dry finish.

DocLock (7481) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2004
Pours dark brown, with great head and lacing. Great aroma of creamy, roasty malt, chocolate, and coffee. Tastes crisp, smooth, with hints of port, toffee, and dark chocolate. Finishes smooth, with overtones of dark chocolate, malt, slightly dry hops, strong black coffee, and even soy sauce. A marvelous stout.
