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.

Deep dark brown color with minimal head. Roasted coffee and nice bitter hoppiness. Not usually a fan of dry stouts but this one I liked.

Murphy (1759) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 5, 2004
Whoa, such a roasty and nutty aroma. This persists in the flavor as well. Slight hop sting fits the rest of the beer well. Could use some more body, kind of watery but the taste is huge with all sorts of coffee and roastedness. Avery seems to never dissapoint me.

Brodie (540) - Blowing Rock, North Carolina, USA - FEB 4, 2004
Aroma is coffee, chocolate, toast, caramel, and light fruit. Dark red-brown, not quite opaque, beige head with good lacing. Very roasty flavor, dominated by coffee, but ihnts of everything in the aroma, plus a little hops. Finishes with good roasty bitterness. Full body, creamy. Not really a dry stout, but very good nonetheless.

Opaque black with ample tan head. Aroma of caramel and coffee with milk chocolate and some vanilla. Full bodied with a spicy, roasted coffee taste. Excellent stout.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2004
The beer after disembarkation, pours soot black with some deep garnet high light, the head is personable in size, the texture frothy, the color a light chocolate with the lace a fine sealing sheet upon the glass. Nose is toasted grain, sweet malt, hints of caramel and coffee, quite fresh and inviting, start is ambrosial, nice malt profile, top is light to moderate in feel. Finish has big hop spiciness, carbonation piercing, quite dry and bittersweet, a pleasant enough stout.

balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - JAN 26, 2004
black opaque pour with a creamy brown head that smells chocolate, malt and roasted nuts. Roasted malt and chocolate comes through in the flavor with a slight bitterness but quite sweet and a medium body...good stout

clvand0 (350) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JAN 16, 2004
This beer pours a dark brown color and has a tan colored head. The aroma is malty with hints of a chocolate or coffee. It has a dark chocolate and coffee flavor, but with some hops tossed in. Something wasn't right about this beer on my palate. It's not a bad beer, but I didn't much enjoy the blend of the flavors. Usually I enjoy this style, but this one didn't do it for me.

Dark brown,but see through. Big tan head,is fizzy,but lasts and leaves nice lace. Big roasty aroma with cream,cakey chocolate,and hops. Extremely smooth mouthfeel,silky texture. Chocolate up front,with tons of roastiness.Very much a dry stout.Finish is malty and quite hoppy. Good stout.

Dark but clear color with weak head and some lacing. Coffee bitterness in the aftertaste and decent chocolate flavors throughout.
