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.

Poured from a bottle to a tulip. Thick brown velvety head that combines to a brown Swiss cheese like head with large bubbles. Slow to dissipate. Black brown color in the glass. No light escapes the glass. Smell chocolate figgy notes. Slight bitterness to go with the powerful malts. This is a smooth drinking stout. Not very syrupy like some others. High quality stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled from BevMo. Black in color on the pour. Nose is mostly bitter, dry roasted coffee/malts. Rich and roasty up front. Lots of coffee bitterness. Smooth and easy drinking. Good quality stout.

Bottle. Wow, This is a hefty stout. Black pour with a creamy mocha head. Absolutely tons of roasty malt, nicely balanced liquorice, lots of smooth chocolate and coffee, and a touch of smoke at the end.

Very rough taste, a little palettey, but very rich tasting. It might be good with a hardy meal.

Excellent Stout by far! The intense chocolate and coffee flavor thrills your mouth yet smooth down the throat. Try it with spicy seafood. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

THX to Kraddel! 35 ml. bottle split by 2 @ Barely Legal Tasting Room. Pours black with a big creamy tanned head. Grainy roasted malt and coffee grounds in the nose with some light milk sourness, touch lactose. Bitter tastes of coffee grounds, very grainy, charcoal, roasted malts, hurbned herbs, quite bitter with some light spoiled milk sourness in the back. Grainy body. I don’t get it, I had troubles getting through my tasting glass. I wouldn’t buy this if this was cheap and local. This is like someone tried making Stouterik and totally messed-up. Yet the score is this high.
