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.

Concealer (837) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 27, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2014 Pours a dark brown with a foamy tan head. Smells of roasted malt, smoke, dark fruit, bitter dark chocolate, and a little nut. Taste is roasted malt upfront, some dark chocolate, and a touch of dark fruit. Highly drinkable. Medium bodied with light carbonation.

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 don’t know -- thick? Good beer, but I could only have one.

Not sure why I’ve never rated this - oh well - I very much enjoy this stout and always forget that fact - it’s probably been a year since I’ve 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 isn’t afraid to be a little bitter. Thanks, Avery, for something new!

Dark opaque pour with brown head. Roasted chocolate aroma. Very roasty flavor. Bitter dark chocolate. Medium to light malt feel. Nice Colorado stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

TXBadger (1522) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2014
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.
