COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Taking cues from old English and Irish Stouts, two brothers from the Land of 10,000 Lakes landed on their own perfect brew. The reveal? A sweet, malty roast that hints of coffee, caramel and chocolate—and finishes off clean with touches of Cascade hops.

Atom (1441) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 13, 2012
On tap at Northbound, pours a dark brown/black with a medium tan head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted malt, slight earthy caramel. Taste of a chocolate malt, with some roast, slight coffee, and bitter soapy hops. Nothing out the ordinary as far as stouts go but decent and drinkable.

Stine (1627) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Dense sienna brown amply capped with mocha foam. Bakers chocolate, birch bark and muddled red fruit aroma. Healthy malts with minor representations of citrus that can seem medicinal. The bittersweet flavor offers dark roasted coffee and its clanging astringency, and waterlogged wood and chocolate. The meaty, rustic roast that carries the best examples is mostly absent here, outshone by mild spicing and the bland acridity of the thin black malt. Texturally hollow, though this is not always the case with this beer.

Poured from bottle into a pilsener glass. Approx. 60⁰ F. Pours a black color with a nice brown toward tan head. Moderate carbonation. Bubbly lacing. Head fades within 7-8 minutes. Smell is predominately roasted, perhaps coffee, which remains after the first taste. Smooth mouth feel, almost creamy. Hop bitterness comes through in the middle and remains in the aftertaste. I’m no expert on what stouts are "supposed" to taste like, but I like this beer a lot.

JonnyMadison (46) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Bottle. A very dark, roasted-coffee-malt flavor, which was very strong at first. As it warmed up, it became more palatable, but was not "easy" to drink.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle, 12oz. A big, foamy light beige colored head sits on top of an unclear, dark reddish body. The aroma has some roasted malts, with coffee, some dark chocolate and a hint of bonfire. The flavor has a nice sweetness, some roasted kind of bitterness, bonfire notes and coffee. A little touch of dark chocolate too. Full body and a nice carbonation level. Soft. Long roasted finish. Not a superb one, but easy drinkable and well worth repeating. 140118
