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.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - NOV 30, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2004 This is some deep dark stout. Holding it up to a light...still looks jet black. Dark carmel head. Not much of it, but what there is lingers in a nice lacy ring around the rim. Smooth dark roast and coffee aroma. Hints of port, leather, and cinnamon. Body is wonderfully chewy and mouthfilling, coating the pallette with goodness. Lingering, oh so smooth finish. Flavors of dark roast toffee, carmel, chocolate, coffee, all playing off of each other in careful balance. Complex, wonderful stuff.

very full flavored, chocolate, light coffee,caramel and an ever so lovely nice creamy bitterness. very smooth and satisfying. I could easily drink this every day for the rest of my life ! my favorite stout....so far and I’ve tasted about 15 diff. micro stouts. this even tastes better than some impy’s I’ve had.

Tons of carmel and chocolate. Nice black body, with a thin mocha head. Taste has coffee that strengthens, hops, slightly nutty with toffee. Not as rich/sweet as I expected, but a very nice brew.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Bottle. Dark black coffee body with a thick beige head. Nose is all roasted malts. Thick roasted/coffee flavors. Very nice and drinkable. Perfect amount of bitterness. Very, very well done and deserving of such a high average.

Pours black with a decent tan head. Semi-strong coffee aroma. Mild coffee flavor in the middle. Long coffee aftertaste. Drank three of these. One with dinner was much better than other two. Overall was decent but I am not a coffee fan.

Nose is caramel, milk, coffee - warm and fuzzy. Bitter up front, giving way to milky coffee, toffee. I can barely feel some hop tingles. Great roasted sweet finish

This is very good. Wonderful coffee and chocolate aroma, with a dark almost black colour. The head was huge and really stuck around. The taste was bitter coffee with a very nice balance of malt. Really, really nice stout.
