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.

I was a little disappointed in this one. The feel in the mouth was thinner than I was expecting, and the flavors not as robust. I enjoyed it; itís just not one of my favorites.

RooftopRogue (423) - Champaign, Illinois, USA - DEC 11, 2005
This beer boasts an aroma resembling a creamy mocha java. This beer looks and sounds like motor oil when poured into the glass with the exception of the small almond colored head. A creamy rich taste of chocolate, coffee, toffee, malt, and mildly nutty that overwhelms the taste buds. That infusion of flavors fades leaving a sweet and mildly bitter taste lingering on the palate for minutes. This beer would defiantly satisfy the thirst of the Bolshevik philosopher on the label. This is a good beer to fill-in after the supply of Dark Lord has vanished.

Pours dark black with a good sized brown head. Low aroma. Deep chocolate and heavy coffee, sweet to bitter. Complex taste which improves throughout the brew. Finishes well.

This was a very dark black beer. I would have to say I was impressed with the taste as well as the appearance.

UPDATED: DEC 21, 2005 Had during a beer tasting party. Poured black and had aroma and taste of malasses. Decent but would have liked to see more out of it.

Pours a pitch black with a brown frothy head. Very caramelly aroma with notes of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts very prevalent as well. Exquisitely complex and wonderfully warming first sip. Great Great stuff. Get some itís an awesome experience!!!
