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.

"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 (145) - 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.

obguthr (3913) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Roasted malt, tree bark, charred oak aroma. Black, medium tan head, abundant glass coating. Charred oak, very earthy, potting soil. Light body, soft carbonation. Well made, rustic, and enjoyable.

AbbeyRoade (354) - Missouri, USA - SEP 30, 2014
Absolutely delicious. Unlike many other stouts, this one doesnít have an overwhelming alcohol note to it. Just great malty, deep roasted flavor with a bit of coffee (not too much!) to complement the thick, smooth body. Great beer.

Jabic (431) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - SEP 15, 2014
Ar: Roast, slight coffee, caramel - molasses. Ap: Black and opaque - small tan head with low retention, leaves a thin ring of foam and a spotty pattern on top. T: Roasted malt and caramel - clean alcohol warmth - coffee and brown sugar - coffee, toffee - some vanilla and oak notes - bitterness is medium and clean. P: Medium body with high carbonation - finish is dry. O: Nice stout - a good mix of dark malt and roasted caramel flavors with the right amount of backing sweetness and bitterness.

kdm1984 (678) - Missouri, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Smell of pitch black coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Good-sized head, nice retention, great lacing. Pitch black color. Tastes dark and rich, very minimal sugar, nice bitterness, char-roast. Medium bodied; doesnít over-power, but better to slowly savor than session. Nice follow-up to sesame kale in olive oil, before a smoked ham, lettuce, and tomato toasted sandwich.

(Backlog) Draft at avery event at blind tiger. Dark brown pour with tan head. Roasted and light cocoa flavors. Bland aromas, roasted and malt tones.

RobertDale (3545) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - AUG 6, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Comes almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and some hops. Very nice.

S_Side_Smitty (467) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 14, 2014
Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is chocolate, dried dark fruits and molasses. Taste is heavy roasted malts, leather and tobacco up front - somewhat different than the aroma. Thereís a hoppy bitterness that really kicks in for the mid and the long finish. This one covers everything and is one of the better stouts Iíve had. Itís almost like a stout blended with a black IPA.

drpimento (2267) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2014
I did open and pour this little on the warm side. Appearance is quite nice with a very long-lasting head and lots of fine lace. Aroma is Malt & toasted barley. This is kind of an odd one as the flavor is fairly bland for this stout and with a little medicinal character. Body is good. Like to try this one again a little colder. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
