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.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 15, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2004 A thoroughly dry specimen for this outing, totally black color, big, bubbling, roasted tan head. Aroma: rich and roasty, appropriate biiterness, and the taste, totally malty, perfectly hoppy for the style, and entangled in a fantastic bitterness, still mild, though, totally drinkable. There are flavors of maple, anise, and more, a sweet, spicy melange that is a treat to enjoy at every occasion. Kalamazoo Stout has always seemed to be bigger and bigger than any other stout, and carries traits that one would associate with an Imperial Stout,yet without the alcoholic content of such brews. Damn, but I love K'zoo stout and it's become a mainstay for me, lately! Earthy, gritty, yet still delicious!

UPDATED: APR 17, 2004 Great beer. There's nothing this beer (gem) is missing. Rich malty flavor, coffee aroma with coco back drop, hopy start with a nice smooth finish. very good stout. As it warms flavor and aroma becomes more enjoyable.

Thick pour, rich flavor of coffee and carmel. Dark tan head, oil black color with moderate carbonation. Couldn't quit drinking these at one, two, three they just kept disappearing. Promised one out of my case to a friend and almost didn't want to give it away. Very good stout.

one of my favorite stouts, but doesn't taste much like a british sweet stout to me. wonderfully roasted taste, balanced by a vanilla flavor. very drinkable in terms of strength, but the flavor is intoxicating.

Huge Thanks to BBB63 for hooking me up with this beer many, many, many, months ago, or was it Indra that sent me this beer? Sorry, I forgot! I should have written all this stuff down when I received the shipment, but Thanks to whomever it was!
The body cannot be any more opaque, BLACK TAR with a velvety kaki hued head… this one hangs curtains of lacing on the glass. The nose is a mass of mocha, cappuccino, vanilla, and almond oils. Massive notes of grains are inhaled with every sip. DAMN!! The flavor is tremendous!! Insane suggestions of oak, long notes of chocolate and toffee, also a hint on bourbon, which brings an inner warmth with each sip. The splendid charred chocolate malts bring a roasted and dry chocolaty finish.

jtw (1098) - farmington, Michigan, USA - MAR 2, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2005 this beer embodies all that i find right and good in a stout. sweet-smelling malty goodness in the nose, slightly roasty. milk and sugar complement a lightly bitter, barely noticeable hops presence. deep black with a smallish tan head sticking to all sides of the glass. extremely smooth, creamy body that is supported by a solid malt backbone that finishes up with a pleasantly roasty aftertaste. body feels syrupy, coats your mouth like a medicine you actually want to take. great stout! worlds better than the double cream stout.

This is a big body hearty stout. It pours deep dark black with a nice little burnt brown head. The flavor is like a normal stout but there is an "imperial" quality to it. I think it is more of a cross between a normal stout and an Imperial. It's not "hoppy" like an imperial, but it's not un-hoppy! I really like this stout. It's not a huge smack in the face like a the Bells expedition stout or an Old Rasputin. It's just a damn good stout! Get a six pack!

Deep black with tan head. Roast coffee/malt aroma. Roast malt flavors without smokiness/burnt flavors. Some bitterness, some dark fruits. Great stout.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2004
12 oz bottle, tulip glass. Roasted grain, milk chocolate, mild coffee malt (M); butterscotch and light nutmeg aromas. Tall, creamy, tan head is slowly diminishing and sits on a deep, nearly opaque black body. Moderately sweet, lightly bitter flavor becomes a lightly bitter, roasty finish and rolls into a warm, mild coffee aftertaste. Medium-heavy body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The bottom line is: this is a stout’s stout.
