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.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2005 Duane, thank you! Poured black, black as night. Poured smooth like velvet With a HUGE brown Foamy, frothy head. As it settled, the lacing was left like the mountains and I could not wait. Aroma had plenty of caramel and roasted malts, chocolate and something I canít place. Oh, smooth, with roasted chocolate malty roasted caramel goodness. THIS IS STOUT BABY! Damn! Wish I had more. Finished dry and the mouth feel was full, like whipped cream. Duane, You ROCK! Thanx again. Yum! Get your paws on this. This was perfect!

UPDATED: JUN 1, 2005 Black pour with nice thick brown speckled head. Very strong flavor going down of dark chocolate sweet malts, slight bitterness, some coffee/toffee sweetness as well. Solid aftertaset, lasting.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2006 Damn fine stout. Pours black with a medium brown head. Coffee, chocolate, roasty aroma. Full bodied but easily drinkable finish is relatively short and dry leaving a lingering coffee and molasses aftertaste. My only complaint is that he aftertaste wore on me.

bottle. pitch black, mocha head. coffee, chocolate. silky smooth body. very rich complexity. tons of coffee, chocolate. very bitter throughout. This is a phenomenal stout, I should have picked up a few more bottles at Merchantís when I had the opportunity but it was kinda tricky since I already had $100 worth of beer in my cart.

Thanks to Beerhandy for this!! Pours a dark black with no light coming through. Has a small frothy chocolate milk head. Sweet chocolate and coffee aroma with some fruitiness. Medium to thick smooth mouthfeel. Sweet chocolate, coffee and a bitter roasty finish. Tastes similar to the expedition without the kick in the tail. great stout!

I agree w/weissguy that it smells like strawberry, but Iíd say frozen yogurt. Taste is sweet sweet malts, darkened. Rich body with hint of white chocolate. This is one of my new favorites.

Black color with a creamy tan head. Very attractive. The aroma was a great first impression; very impressive. Sweet milk chocolate filled my nose and made me say "wow". The mouthfeel was smooth and the aftertaste faded slowly into chocolatey goodness. Smooth and utterly delicious. Itís reputation is well-earned.

Pours dark brown nearly opaque color with beautiful high lacy brown head that keeps going and going. Faint aroma, but explodes on presentation with a burst of chocolate, roasted coffee and burnt caramel. Long hoppy palate with bitter finish. High in carbonation, full of flavor, a lovely beer. Slightly sweet and robust flavor with bitter finish.
