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.

Scipio (756) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2013
Pours black with a good foamy tan head. Aroma consists of roasted malts, heavy coffee, a touch of chocolate and a bit of smoke. I guess you can call it musty overall. The taste is heavy in chocolate and smokiness. I still get some coffee, but not nearly as much as earlier. I do find hints of licorice in the flavor as well. This one is more light in body, with a creamy texture. Carbonation is flat. Smoky aftertaste lasts a long time. This is a good stout.

mbgrayson (622) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Pours very dark, with a nice whitish tan head. Aroma of a good stout; rich and malty. Taste is dark with lots of malts, a touch of hoppiness. All in all, a good, solid stout. Thumbs up.

Mep3222 (869) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2015
Roasted malt, cocoa and lactose aroma and flavor. Taste is mostly dry but has a slight sweet lactose like finish along with bitter cocoa finish. Nice stout. Maybe a bit bitter finish but I like it overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trapped (1377) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours inky black with large spongy tan head, mocha aroma, medium carbonation, bitter roasted barley taste, thin body, long bitter finish with burnt aftertaste. Very flavorful indeed, but a bit thin bodied for a good stout.

MadRobin (2392) - Silver Spring, USA - MAY 7, 2015
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Opaque, black-brown with a 3-finger light tan head and very good lacing. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, apples, roasted malt, pine and orange. Taste of roasted coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, licorice and pineapple. Medium body and medium/high carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hershiser2 (1424) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle. Pours dark with a small tan head. Smells of coffee, chocolates, and a bit of grass. Taste is bready, coffee, dry cereal, and grass. Eh.

Robust aroma. Chocolate and malt dominant the taste. Beautiful dark pour. Palate is full bodied. Overall a nice stout. Would get again.

Oscbert (1145) - Sacramento, California, USA - APR 17, 2015
Roasty malty aroma, dark chocolate, coffee, earthy hops. Pours black with red tints, small brownish heads that barely hangs on. Roasty coffee flavors and dark chocolate, woody flavor, slightly burnt. Medium full bodied, medium high co2, lingering burnt roastiness. Enjoyable roasty stout. Doesn't stand out from other American stouts, but solid and worth purchasing if you want a good stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bartzluke (331) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 6, 2015
12 oz pour from room temperature bottle into Spiegelau stout glass. Large light brown head, moderate retention, considerable lacing. Pitch black and opaque. Nice smell. Nose is coffee and chocolate. Pleasantly roasty. Mouthfeel is creamy with a bit of carbonation. Taste is dry and roasty. Dark chocolate, coffee, a little burnt. Maybe a hint of vanilla. Quite bitter. A solid stout, though not my favorite.
