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.

Thick, tan head. Highly roasted and bitter. A decent wack of hops at the end. Very dry. Not for me.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 21, 2004
Black coffee appearance with a small tan head. Strong bodied with lots of bitterness. Powerful smoky, burnt aromas. Assertively bitter finish. Very flavorful, robust and dark.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 13, 2004
Pours a thick dark brown with a tan head. Aroma was malty, sweet, and roasty. Coffee, dark chocolate, and mildy hopped. A good stout. Very drinkable.

Beaver (1327) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 10, 2004
The Out of Bounds poured a dark black with a smallish tan head that quickly went to a collar that laced the glass. It has a strong aroma of roasted malts, coffee and lots of semi-sweet chocolate. It is medium bodied and tastes of roasted malts and some chocolate up front with a very bitter, coffee-like, dry finish. Overall, a nice dry stout. The hops are very bold, but not quite over the top.

Crockett (1010) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 8, 2004
Dark Coca-cola pour. Mild roasty coffee/chocolate. Earthy sweet malts. Mild bitter. Hoppy, some grape. A little watery. Great flavours. Could be bolder.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2004
Cherry, chocolate nose, reddish/brown, a tiny beige head. Mild coffee taste, with some fruit flavour also. Creamy, soft, bitter almond finish. A very nice treat.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2004
Ruby-tinged black beer with a thin bubbly tan head. Roasted malts and smoky aromas lead to caramel and coffee tastes. Creamy finish - not bad.

radiomgb (2320) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2004
Deep brown in colour. Aroma was roasty, nutty, mild coffee and some chocolate. The flavour had a nice coffee bitterness, some nuts, slight malt and roasty. Finish is smooth and slightly dry. Quite nice.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2004
Burgundy-brown colour. Nutty, toasty, leafy, fruity aroma…lots going on…fun stuff, just like the Porter. Balanced body shows the same characteristics. None of them make a sharp impression but they are unusually charming in their vagueness, teasing the tongue rather than outright pleasuring it. Dry finish. Stylish.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - MAR 1, 2004
Very dark, black body with shades of ruby, purple and dark brown (90% opaque). Head is medium thick and oatmeal colored with a constant surfacing of bubbles. Smell is delicious, a toned down rendition of the Czar. It includes chocolate, rich malt, brown sugar, cinnamon and a tad bit of roasted hops. Taste is a little different than I anticipated; it starts sour and works its way to bitter. Sandwiched in the middle are sweet chocolate, heavy malt and mild hop flavors. Aftertaste is roasted barley (grains) and a little alcohol. Overall, the flavor seems middle of the road compared to other stouts and it suffers from a carbonated water presence on the palate, along with hops that don’t seem perfectly matched for this beer. Overall, a pretty good sample from Avery. Purchased in Roanoke, VA at Lee & Edwards.
