This deluxe stout is brewed for a full roasted chocolate flavour with a hop character that complements a blend of triple malts. Drink, savour and enjoy.

Bottled (BB 10/2010, @Kaisla)
Dark brown color, creamy brown head, some lace. Sticky, a bit sour milky lactose aroma, some mild chocolate. Flavor is a bit similar, sweet milky, some lactose, light sourness, chocolate or cocoa, roasted malts in the finish. Very milk stout -like. Flavors are not very intensive, so it is a bit bland despite of being powerful 7%.

Bottle. Deep dark brown body topped with a tan head. Aroma is honey sweet with mild chocolate and a little coffee. Flavor is chocolate, some coffee, sweet raisin and other dark fruit, and roast but none of it is very intense. Medium mouthfeel with bitterness and too much sweet dark fruit in the finish. Okay.

Served from a bottle from K&B. The appearance is a deep brown black with a small disappointing light brown head. Nose is rich with rich roasted malt, coffee bean, and bakers chocolate. The flavors range from roasted/burnt malt, tootsie roll chocolate, dirty tones, burnt coffee grinds, hard candy. A decent stout.

500. Pours nearly jet black with a dense, creamy, towering tan mousse up top. Tons of foamy lace coming down the sides. Mild, sweet, chalky, chocolatey nose. Creamy medium body, almost kinda light. Chalky, chocolatey mid-palate with a mild finish. This is one of those beers that makes you wonder if you’re not putting a proper yeoman’s effort into the rating notes, because any well-made beer ought to offer more complexity than this. But this one really does tell its whole story with just a simple, clean, straight-up few flavor/aroma notes. It does them well, but, really, it could stand a bit more complexity. As it is, it’s a rather humdrum little stout that, still, is entirely without flaw.

got this bottle a couple of months ago at Surdyk’s in Minneapolis. Poured with a big, foamy, fine frothy, tan head that lasted a while and a little lace. Color is an opaque brownish black. Aroma is chocolate, malty, and sweet, but not much roastiness. Flavor is very similar. Not a lot of depth. Mouth is very soft with good carbonatioin. A little alcohol in the finish. Easy drinking beer. Little too sweet for me though

awiseman01 (469) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - OCT 29, 2009
Bottle. Pours pitch black with slight brown edge and lingering foamy light beige head. Nose is a balance of roasted/chocolate malt and astringency. Flavor is smooth and creamy and surprisingly pleasing compared to the nose. Some chocolate pokes through, with an overall light feeling to it for a stout. Not Bad.

donfardz64 (538) - Wellington, New Zealand, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 19, 2009
500mL bottle. Pours almost pitch black, with a tiny bit of red on the edges. Nice tan head. Sexy.
Nice malt aroma, very burnt. Coffee and caramel, a bit of fruit (raisin?). Nice warm chocolaty roast flavour, a bit of coffee on the finish, a little smoke.
Nothing too intense here, making this one quite drinkable and unintimidating. Goes well with a cigar too. But generally I like a bit more oomph in my Stouts.

TheGrandMaster (2335) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 16, 2009
Bottle (in NZ). Pours black with a pillowy orange/tan head. A subdued nose, just a touch of roasty malt. A sappy/vinuous palate, A burnt malt flavour, with some milk chocolate. A dryish finish, a little harsh.
