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.

UPDATED: MAY 6, 2005 Gives me the feeling of a nice cup of coffee after a nice day on the slopes. Yummmmmy. Excellent chocolate and coffee flavored malt and a tinge of sweet, biting hops.

Dark with thin tan head. Taste is dry with roasted coffee flavor. Mouthfeel is a little thin. Overall decent stout for drinking, not too heavy to have a few.

Bottle: Dark black, almost nonexistent tan head. Aroma: coffee, chocolate, dark malts. Taste: Very roasty, coffee, roasted dark malts, burnt coffee, toasted wood, bark, bitter chocolate. Finishes bitter, with notes of dark malts, roasty, and a hint of hops shows.

Gorgeous coloring. Strong aroma of roasted malt with hints of espresso and semi-sweet chocolate, followed by a nice bready essence. Definitely more hops than is typical in most stouts. The flavoring is fairly straight forward, without much sublty. Coffee, dark chocolate and a hops follow dominate the flavor. Very nice, though I thought it would open up a little better as it warmed.

black with nice brown lasting head...aroma roasted malt, a little toffee/coffee. thin and watery.burnt flavors(enjoyable burnt). Though ill always prefer an imperial, this is a good plain old stout.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 13, 2004
Dark black pour, slight malt aroma with a touch of chocolate, this turned to a dark chocolate roast aroma as it warmed. Smooth roasted malt and chocolate taste a little on the light side. In the lower part of the upper catagory of stouts.

Black with a thin tan head. Strong roasted malt aroma. Nice roasted malt flavor with a good deal of hop bitterness. Quite dry, which is a welcome change from all the Impy Stouts Iíve been drinking lately. Iím glad I bought a whole case.

Nuffield (3771) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2004
Interesting aroma: breakfast cereal (Cheerios, Raisin bran), coffee, chocolate, new winter raincoat...all very intriguing. Dark brown, frothing head. A bit watery, leaving something roasted and burnt, like the residue of crisp bacon, and with some smoky notes, like gentle wisps of smoldering logs on a dying holiday fire. A hint of deep-friend fish, too. Too dry for my taste.

Zach Diesel (906) - Sisters, Oregon, USA - OCT 24, 2004
very rich leathery roasted aroma, dark black with minimal head, very bittersweet roastiness, good body but lacking balance

Bottle. Mose is very nice with rich roasted malts and oatmeal. Dark black body with thin beige head. Flavor has notes of smoke and the usual stout flavors. Overall this is kind of thin and watery.
