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.

tillmac62 (658) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2016
BOD 327/15. Pitch black pour. Normal head volume, outstanding lacing and retention. Very good nose of light chocolate, roast, malt with a caramel note, a bit of char and an odd berry like fruitiness. Had it had more intensity, it would rate outstanding. Medium body that is very smooth and has a light creamy aspect, especially on the finish. Outstanding carbonation / body balance with just enough middle effervescence to open it up and still deliver a light prickly finish. The flavor profile is hard to rate due to the strong berry flavor (raspberry and blue berry) since the description has no mention of these additives. However, what’s in the glass is outstanding, albeit lacking a bit of intensity. It begins with light roast then flows to bakers chocolate. The middle has slightly sweet underpinnings that a light herbal hop note cascades over. Bitterness is very mild and has some hop flavor but is mostly roast with a bit of char. From the middle on fruit takes center stage and coasts through the finish over a bit of char with a nice herbal hop note.

Stuedmaster (345) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 25, 2016
12 oz. bottle from Pacific Liquor. Strong dark coffee and dark chocolate aromas, with a hint of sweet malt and cream. A black pour with a minimal khaki head that leaves lacing. Has a dry feel in the mouth but packs plenty of flavor, including a slight sour tang. Well balanced sweet and bitter with chocolatey goodness and coffee bite. Full body, creamy and oily texture, soft carbonation, bittersweet finish. This is very flavorful and interesting for a beer at 6.3% abv.

chinchill (3993) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 25, 2016
undated 12 oz bottle served in a pint glass. (from April 2011 notes). pours a brownish-black. Essentially opaque but seems clear. Short-lived 1 finger head. S - a swirl of roasted grain aromas. ABV of 6.3% or higher seems evident. T - rich taste; clearly made with a generous amount of roasted barley. Hops not obvious but detectable, especially in the finish. And this stout is a little bitter for style. Finish also has coffee notes. Strong roasted grain flavor doesn’t cross the line into burnt flavor. M - full body; smooth but not quite creamy. O - a bold stout, both in its use of more roasted barley and in the ramped up hopping. Well done!.
