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.

I was pleasantly surprised. Usually, I find Stouts with a relatively low ABV to be weak tasting and watery. This one was big, bold, hoppy, slightly bitter and malty. Lots of flavor, good palate, this one is changing my opinion that all good stouts are above 9% ABV. I should have known Avery would not let me down.

Bottle from the hotel minibar, pours near-black with a thin crema, roasty malt nose, big hit on the palate with a firm pine hoppiness overshadowed by lots of burnt barley bitterness, liquorice, tasty but the burntness is a little harsh.

Poured into a perfect pint. 3.75 A: Black color. Just over one finger of frothy tan head. Retention is about average and a decent amount of lacing is left. 3.75 S: Moderate roastiness. Lactose like tanginess. Chocolate and vanilla. Caramel and light molasses. Quite nice. 3.25 T: Taste is like the nose, but less impressive. Moderate roast. Chocolate and vanilla are subdued as is the caramel. Lactose or lactose-like component is still there. 3.25 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lacking creaminess. 3.0 D: Started out strong, but ultimately didn’t do much for me. ★ 581 characters DavoleBomb, Sep 04, 2013

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.

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 (1654) - 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.

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.
