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.

HIGHB4LL (555) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 29, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Williston. Appearance: finger dark brown-red color, dark brown color, light oily lacing. Aroma: roast, chocolate, heavy licorice, coffee, very hidden and faint floral. Palate: full body, soft creamy carbonation, creamy texture into oily finishing texture, super smooth, medium bitter finish. Taste: sweet chocolate and licorice, into more malty sweetness, almost molasses, and then into a coffee bitterness, with light touches of floral hoppiness. Overall, very complex, but so smooth you hardly notice even! The balance is phenomenal, the taste is great, the beer is great.

Really nice stout. Khaki head in deep brown black pour. Meaty roasty nose give way to smoky and dark chocolate taste. Black licorice is there too but subtle. Touch of coffee in the finish. Nice medium to full body. Excellent.

Transfer from BA review on 2-11-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance –Poured a deep brown nearly black color with a two finger thick and creamy tan colored head. The head slowly fades leaving a fantastic level of lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of cocoa mixed with a burnt brown sugar sweetness. Other aromas of roasted malt and coffee combined with these aromas well creating an overall rather dark and sweet roasty aroma. Taste – The flavors start out with sweeter chocolate and some vanilla and brown sugar. The flavor dries some more toward the middle as flavors of coffee and a light licorice come to the tongue. The flavors take the taste to its end where they are joined by a light earthy hop taste. When all combined the flavors leave a nice cocoa and roasted semi sweet flavor on the tongue with just the right amount of bitter from the coffee and the hop to balance it all out. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly thicker side in terms of creaminess with a carbonation level that is medium. The thicker body is nice for the darker flavors of the brew while the moderate carbonation suits the abv. and the more bitter flavors well, keeping the brew very drinkable. Overall – A tasty stout with a great drinkability and wonderful feel/flavor. A great roasty, but rather balanced stout.

Tastes of sweet toffee, bakers chocolate,ash,latte and licorice. Full body,velvety mouthfeel, average carbonation and a dry toasty bitter finish.
