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.

This is a ok Dry Stout. roasted malt, bitter, and coffee bean flavors. Finishes dry chewy, and bitter sweet.

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).

WOW. When this brew warmed up a bit, it was wonderful. Pours opaque with a nice tan head. The flavor had a super coffee flavor with a nice bitter finish. Again this is a wonderful brew.

a damn fine stout, pours out very dark. taste is bitter and coffee like at first (when it was too cold) but it turned into a more mellow very smooth and rich stout as it warmed up. a damn fine beer, and these guys just make nothing but good beers anyway. i want to see a top 50 avery damnit.

Nice black body with mahogany around the edges. The head is dense and sticky and the a nice milky tan color. Good staying power and lacing. BEAUTIFUL aroma. Very strong coffee malt rises up above everything. Just gorgeous smell. The flavor falls flat after that aroma. It’s nice a roasty, but a lot thinner than I was expecting. I was expecting a rich, full-flavored stout, but what I get is pretty typical of a better-than-Guinness dry stout flavor.

The aroma is good overall, but has a hint of burntness, or something otherwise unappetizing. SIt tastes slightly burnt, too, in its bitter sharpness. The aftertaste fades steadily, but resurges a few times. Good, hearty stuff.

Dark almost opaque but hints or ruby washewd light make it through. The head is minimal and spotty. Roasted malt choco-coffee, light citrus hop. Flavor is roasted malt throughout with a bit of hoppy bitterness up fron that gives way to a roasted malt bitterness towards the end. The palate kind of falls flat and overall the beer is good but just kind of there. I liked the porter better.
