COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A dry stout with chocolate notes and hints of oak. A cross culture of three different yeasts during fermentation delivers a delightfully different body with a soft finish

12oz pour at Meridian Pint. Pours a nearly opaque deep brown with a thin beige head. Doesn’t look like a stout. Nose is nutty, yeasty, bread, grains. Sweet, malty, caramel, bread, a little candy, some very obvious fruit. Medium bodied, dry finish. A little weird. Not really a stout.

On tap. Pour is deep brown with a large semi off white head. Nice oak and roast malt in the aroma. Taste is oak, cream, lingering chocolate, and slight bitter finish. Creamy and semi dry finish. Good and pretty interesting.

(draft @ Bell’s Eccentric Cafe - Kalamazoo, MI) Dark ruby red pour with a thin tan head. Nice and rich roasty flavor with some very mild chocolate. Mainly a delicious roasted aroma. Flavor has that really nice freshly ground coffee and freshly roasted coffee quality to it. Very well balanced as you get to the end. A bit thin-bodied but really flavorful.

On tap at Eccentric. Dark brown body small head and aromas of coffee and bitter chocolate. Flavor is bitter chocolate and coffee with peat like eartiness. Full body and palate. Very nice to see this being served again.

On tap at the Eccentric cafe 11/11/09. Pours dark brown with a thick tan head. Aroma is not real strong, but what is there is of chocolate, roasted malt and some coffee. Flavor is very good of the aforementioned. To me it tastes like a somewhat stronger Java stout, but not as creamy as a Breakfast Stout. Very good though all in all.

JaBier (4532) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2009
Sampled at the Ohio group tasting on DLD eve ’09. Thanks Dan! Brown pour with a medium tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and a touch of sweetness. Malty flavor with some coffee, but it’s kinda thin. I think this one may be a bit past its prime. Held up better than some others would have though.
