COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a full-bodied stout with plenty of roast flavor as well as hints of molasses and chocolate. Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts make this stout smooth, creamy, and utterly opaque.

From 12oz Bottle. Dark, rich pour the color of succulent prunes with a moderate sized layer of lightly toasted tan head. Smells like a campfire roasted s’more complete with graham cracker, toasted marshmellow, and light milky chocolate. Breakfast aromas of toasted whole grain bread waft to my nostrils as well, spread with a light layer of seedless blackberry jam. That definitely brings back fond memories of living in Michigan. Rich, full-bodied mouthfeel brings Saturday morning construction site cofee to the palate, straight from the thermos on a cold fall morning. Some slightly bitter dark chocolate notes follow along eagerly. Long lasting, dry finish with a hint of anise and salted oats in the final smack. Very nostalgic tasting for me, as the flavors instantly bring back familiar memories of enjoying this beer during college. Thanks, Tom!

Pours dark and opaque with a nice tan head. Aroma of coffee roast. Velvet smooth and slightly thin mouth feel. Tastes of rich malt and coffee, chocolate roastiness. Very nice stout!

bottle - Pours black with a big, tan, lasting head. The aroma is of roasted malt and coffee. The flavor has coffee and chocolate notes with a very well balanced roasted malt dominating. The finish is moderately dry. This is a great stout that should not be missed.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2006
Nice dark color. A lot of roasted coffee smell in this one. Tastes very creamy with some hops, rye, coffee, chocolate and toffee. Goes down smooth with a nice sweet/bitter after taste.

stoutchap (422) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 11, 2006
Dark brown. A little liight and carbonated. Nice coffee and roasted malt in the nose which continues into the mouth, along with the characteristic chocolat. Palate too light for style. Odd - it is better cold than warm - unusual for a stout.

12 oz bottle pours extremely dark opaque brown, almost black. Huge tan head hangs around a while, but not too long. Lots of lacing down the glass. Roast malt and coffee aroma. Lots of coffee and some bitter chocolate in the taste. Complex, some flavours going on I can’t exactly describe (maybe black liquorice??). Not too sweet but not exactly dry either. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Long roasted finish, not too bitter. Really good stout.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 5, 2006
In the bottle. Dark brown head, but a thin head. Has a phenomenal aroma of roasted coffee. The flavor is a strong thick rich dry roasted malt. Tasty with a medium coffee and lightly chocolated flavor. I think I need to try this fresh on tap someday to fully appreciate it.

Pours very dark. Aroma is coffee with chocolate subtleties. Thought it was a tad to spritzy, but an all around good drink none the less.

Pretty much pours as dark as dark gets. Moderate creamy tan head. Aroma is full bodied malty good ness, with some chocolate and coffee!! Roasted malts, coffee and chocolate abound in the flavor. Very creamy and very smooth. A must try.
