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.

Bottle that has been resting in my cellar for a couple of years. Dark brown/deep deep mahogany pour with an over abundance of rocky tan head. This head won’t quit, "finish up already putty lips" - Andrew "Dice" Clay. Anyway, nice roasty malt aroma, some chocolate notes. Nice roasty flavor, good amount of bitterness, chocolate malts, and a hint of black coffee. Smooth, very easy drinking. A pleasure. I wish it had a bit more depth.

csaso (1529) - Missouri, USA - FEB 23, 2015
Bottle - big thick head, pitch black color, bog roasty coffee aroma and flavor, not a big coffee person so this beer is only OK for me, but if you like coffee you will like this

Tap at Imazato. Nose of coffee, cocoa, light cream. Medium body. Good balance, woody roast. Light and clean with rather bitter finish.

EyeAmBaldman (339) - Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2015
Pours a dark amber with a thick tan head. Aroma is mostly dark roasted barley and malt. Taste is all bitter roasted malt and barley with a cold coffee bitterness. It has a strong backend that lingers far too long.

Hangover (1079) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Black pour with a lasting, medium sized, tan head. Aroma is roasted malt with some citrus hops. Flavor is pretty hoppy for a stout. Orange up front leading to a rich, coffee middle. Bitter finish, roasty, lingers for a while. Creamy body, soft carbonation. Pretty good but maybe a bit too hoppy.

Strong in the nose with a medium mouthfeel. A little higher alcohol and a little more hoppy for a stout.

Handypaul (279) - - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle. Pours black with a small quickly disappearing head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is ashen malt, a bit of coffee and hints of chocolate. Light to medium bitter in a disappointingly thin body, lively carbonation and a very long lightly bitter finish.

lownote (152) - USA - DEC 30, 2014
Pours big and black with an off white head about an inch thick into a pint. Aroma is roasted leaning towards coffee but a general roasted maltedness thatís unusually freshlike. Taste is nicely sweet with that roasted goodness. Thick body with a little carbonation.

Beer4000 (4768) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2014
355 ml bottle. Dark, dark brown body, almost black with a small, dense brown head. Very nice aroma of dark malt, coffee, dark chocolate and dry fruit. Flavor is nice as well, sweet, smooth, mild roasted dark malt, toffee, dark chocolate, mild coffee, dry fruit and a pleasant level of bitterness. Fine body and nice aftertaste of sweet tasty malt and pleasant fruity bitterness. Classic American Stout.

kidobutai (454) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2014
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 donít know -- thick? Good beer, but I could only have one.

Not sure why Iíve never rated this - oh well - I very much enjoy this stout and always forget that fact - itís probably been a year since Iíve 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.
