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.

12oz bottle from Tiffany's, Kalamazoo Michigan. Completely black pour with a small amount of offwhite suds on top. Smells like chocolate, malt and a bit of black licorice. Indicative of a stout. Thick dense mouthfeel, tingly. Light for a stout and on the malty side of the spectrum. Roasted barley, honey and clovery hops. Pretty unique and light stout. Finish is only slightly bitter and clean. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

355 ml bottle. Dark, dark brown body, almost black with a small, dense brown head. Very nice aroma of dark malt, coffee, dark chocolate and dry fruit. Flavor is nice as well, sweet, smooth, mild roasted dark malt, toffee, dark chocolate, mild coffee, dry fruit and a pleasant level of bitterness. Fine body and nice aftertaste of sweet tasty malt and pleasant fruity bitterness. Classic American Stout.

Poured from a bottle. Black color with a brownish head. Roasted coffee aroma, vanilla on the taste. More than anything this is a full bodied beer. Almost -- I donít know -- thick? Good beer, but I could only have one.

Not sure why Iíve never rated this - oh well - I very much enjoy this stout and always forget that fact - itís probably been a year since Iíve last had it - I am.drinking it now and reminded of what I enjoy - creamy texture - strong, but not overly bitter roastiness - some balancing vanilla and chocolate sweetness - light smokiness - finish of espresso - a nicely balanced and flavorful stout.

popephred (257) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Poured from the bottle into a Samuel Adams glass. The pour produced a chestnut-brown, opaque body, topped by a medium head of rocky foam, which was slow to diminish. Coffee was the dominant aroma here, though I was quite surprised after my first sip. This stout brings quite a bit of hops to the game, adding a new level of floral and citrus to the roasted char I usually expect from a stout. The good thing about this heavy-handed use of hops is it is not overdone, and balances quite well. A full-bodied stout that isnít afraid to be a little bitter. Thanks, Avery, for something new!

Pours a black like oil color with tan head, but lighter on the viscosity. Coffee, roasted malt, and cocoa on the nose; follows onto the palate. I really like that this is just being a stout, and not trying to be too much else. Solid.

Bottle. Pours black with a medium tan head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate with some sweet notes. Flavor is roasted malt, black coffee, milk chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and some earthy hop notes. Medium body with soft carbonation. Pretty good one.

"predominance of smokey malts and a dry hop nose...more of the same from the flavor. good, but left me wanting a little more of everything. very dry finish as advertised."

Beachmaster (174) - Oklahoma, USA - OCT 9, 2014
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours black, with a small brown head that quickly fades,leaving moderate lacing. Nose is dark malt, and the taste follows the nose. Long finish, with some hop bitterness to balance the creamy mouth feel. Solid stout.
