COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, dark ale is brewed with nine different malts along with roasted barley. It has old-world appeal for stout overs everywhere and is distinguished by hints of coffee and cocoa.

I love stouts. A nice head with good flavor, if I had to give an example of a "normal" stout, this could qualify. Quite nice. On tap at the Draft House in Vegas.

20 oct 07, draft at BD Cafe & Casino, LV. Dark, opaque black color. Milk chocolate colored head. Aromas of semi-sweet chocolate, coffee, licorice. Tastes of roasted malts & coffee, light anise. Medium bodied. If I loved Stouts... This would be my Favorite of the lot. An Excellent Stout!

had this one at the barleys beer festival...poured a beatiful opaque brown black with a creamy tan dense head that you could lay on without creasing. nice roasted nose flavors....sweet choc milk flavors, espresso, and caramel, chocolate. slight bittering at the end. nice all around maybe slightly thiin, but enjoyable never the less. reminds me of what a milk stout should be, probably from the holy cow days...this would make sense, wouldnt it?? drink it youll like it.

beerlist (23) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - FEB 8, 2005
Good roasty aroma. Creamy nitro head. Very dark in color, nearly opaque, how a stout should look. Nice roasted malt flavor, but smooth enough to be quite drinkable. A very nice stout.

Nice malt aroma and a big brown head. Beer had big body and excellent roasted, coffee taste. Beer is nitrogen carbonated giving it that typical Guiness type mouthfeel. Best of the beers I tried.

Had to try this because I had a black lab for several years. Great dog, pretty good beer. It is very dark in color, with roasted, coffee-like malt with a dry finish. Rich, full head and nice aroma.

HumuloneRed (751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Nitro tap. Roasty nose. Black as night color with a thick tan head. Good lacing. Lots of chocolate/roasty flavors. Very smooth silky/creamy texture with sweet light finish. Very nice Europeanstyle stout.

Tmoney99 (10468) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Draft. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and chocolate aroma. Medium to heavy chocolate sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a very good beer that exceeded my expectations.
