This is America’s way of doing stout. More roasted barley and more hops, bigger and better. This beer has very roasted, mild coffee flavor that is smooth to the finish.

Ughsmash (7505) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 12, 2012
On tap at GTMW. Poured deep brown with a dark creamy beige head. The aroma picked up sweet vanilla and chocolate with a nice, soft feel to it. The flavor found toasty chocolate and black malts at the core, with some malt-inspired sourness on the edges.. became a little sharp on the finish. Medium-bodied with higher, filling carbonation on the palate.. good except for some odd sourness.

Black pour nice light brown head w/ soapy lacing. Buttery aroma light roasts very simple. Avg palate. Flavor heavy on roast bottom of the coffee pot bitterness w/ a touch of cocoa. Not very good.

nuplastikk (5615) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2012
On tap at Blue Heron. Deep red-brown-black. A really nice big coffee stout. Mellow carbonation, mild to minimal hopping. All out roast malt bomb, a little oily but not syrupy or overly viscous. Highly respectable, one of the best WI stouts for sure.

mcjay (463) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 13, 2011
Pours black with a creamy tan head. The body is rich and malty with a mildly sweet flavor that has a lingering bitterness. There is a light chocolate on the nose and a dry finish.

Skyview (5464) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2011
On draught at the Blue Heron brewpub in Marshfield, Wisconsin. Pours a clear dark brown colored brew with an average sized and creamy beige colored head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of toasted dark malt, floral hops and a hint of black malt. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of chocolate, toasted dark malt, and some very light coffee. Finish is semi-sweet at first followed by a mild dry bitterness that slowly disappears. A touch more toasted dry malt compared to the Parkins Dark.
