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.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Solid stout. Pours deep brown, almost black. Pefect head, about 1/3" thick and tan, looking somewhat like a snowdrift on top. Lacey, making thick, spread-out rungs on the glass as the levels drop. Smells of roasted coffee and heavily of dark molasses. Also picking up traces of something that smells like charcoal. Taste is lighter and more crisp than expected, but still is full. Malty and coffee-like; bitter and mouth watering. One of the most lingering aftertastes Iíve had with a stout in some time.

YogiBeera (2545) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Big frothy head leaving laces on the glass. Nices Black color. Intense roasted malt and nut nose. Kind of thin smoked, tabacco taste, medium long lasting.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Black color, off-white head, smell lacing. Nose of campfire, sage, tarry black malts, some robustness. Strong astringency in the taste but some sweet complexity. Nice coffee note in the tail! Finishes smooth & balanced. Yummy!

Wrath (362) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Dark reddish brown color with a solid roasted coffee smell. Light chocoalte notes with a thin sweet feel. A little lighter than most good stouts but still a nice balanced taste. Finishes slightly bitter. Not bad.

pivo (2632) - GERMANY - DEC 31, 2004
Light nose - could have been more here. Opaque black color with a tall foamy, tan head. Quick chocolately malt with some burnt malt, tobacco and a charcoal aftertaste. A little thin. Different stout taste and Iíll give some bonus point for a unique taste. Balance is a little off, but this is enjoyable.

biz82 (1328) - austin, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2004
Deep ruby/brown with little head or carbonation. Aroma of expresso, toffee, vanilla. Very roasty in flavor. Decent to good body. Moderate hop flavor and bitterness. Well balanced if somewhat understated stout.

Lubiere (11166) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2004
Deep dark stout with an off-white head. Chocolate and coffee aroma with nice touch of hops. Crisp cold coffee, lightly sweet chocolate, malts. Bitterness in finish. Lighter bodied than expected. Good.

chriso (7482) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2004
Black in colour, almost opaque. No head to speak of. A smooth coffee accented stout, with lots of roast malt. Well balanced, with a hint of bitterness. Dry finish. Not a blockbuster in the US style, but a pleasant, almost understated brew. Bottled at the Brickskeller, with BuckNaked and Argo0.

bubbleflubber (2039) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - DEC 5, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2006 Pours tall with a thin, tan head.... leaves no lace. Almost opaque, but just a shade under in color. The nose is of roasted wine..... a hint of sweetness comes through. Big roasted, smoky coffee flavor. It has a medium mouthfeel with a lingering finish. It is a beer to be enjoyed on occasion.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - DEC 1, 2004
Bottle - big, roasty nose. Black body with a creamy tan head atop. Much, much roast in the flavor. Maybe a tad one-dimensional, but I like it! As I go, however, Iím getting a touch of coffee late, late in the finish. Big, sturdy mouthfeel. Good.
