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.

3fourths (8236) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle dated September 2014. Deep brown with a thin ring of a head. Chocolate malt nose with fainter roast, slightly inky with stewed plum and grape jelly fruitiness. Medium body and effervescent, slightly sweet approach turning more carbonic to a watery, moderately-hopped astringent roast finish. Nicely minerally and chocolaty and the flavor balance and acidity is pleasant but the malt seems simple.

I really enjoyed Bell’s Expedition Stout and thought that this would also be good. I was disappointed. It looks and pours like a nice stout but not much aroma. The first thing I noticed was it hit my taste buds on the tip of my tongue then seemed to disappear. I didn’t really notice any licorice flavor or much of any flavor for that matter. I let it warm up a bit and took a good sip to savor the flavor but had the same reaction. Not what I expected from this type of beer. My daughter didn’t even want to finish her glass.

hangunder (274) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 10, 2014
Slightly subdued aroma, but lots of roasted malt, cocoa and coffee in the nose. Looks great, completely black with a thick long lasting coffee-colored head. Tastes delicious, a mix of coffee and caramel. Upfront roasty malts, finishes with a caramel sweetness, leafy bitter notes and licorice like qualities. Bitterness lingers on the tongue. Quite intense flavors in this one for such a low ABV -- delicious. Creamy, medium bodied stout with average carbonation.

Tap at Mr Beery’s. Opaque black pour with tan head that dissipates. Dark roast grains and molasses aroma. Medium body very dark roast borderline burnt with some charcoal notes.

Pours black with a small light tan head. Aroma is heavy roasted malts with coffee tones and molasses. Taste is all of the above in abundance starting with the chocolatey malts and coffee followed by a heavy bitter finish.
