COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep, dark stout with lots of rich and hearty roasted barley flavor, and even some notes of dried fruit if you've got a discerning enough palate...

Imaena (2084) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - APR 19, 2013
Draught. Not a stout I would go for again. This is a bit thin and not roasty enough for my taste.

Bulk_Carrier (2776) - Final Resting Place, Vermont, USA - JAN 20, 2013
It pours pitch black and leaves the same color body. With a nice foamy one inch mocha colored head, it gently dies to concave lumpiness. Spotty spiderweb lacing is left. The smell is smoky and roasty with the coffee up front, some really light vanilla enters in as the beer warms. The taste is light and gives quite a bit of hops and burnt bread, some coffee, pine and hops enter gently in. The palate is light and bitter, close to watery. There is a good dry finish and a bitter and dry aftertaste. It is fairly drinkable. Overall, not bad, but not memorable, might get it again depending upon what else was offered.

magsinva (1004) - Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle from Hop City Birmingham - pours cola with a tan head. Aroma is hop forward, which is weird in a stout. Taste leans bitter. Overall, I’m not feeling this one.

Bottle from hop city Birmingham. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Burnt chocolate on the nose. Lots of roasted chocolate malt on the tongue. Gets less flavorful as it warms. Eh!

Tap at stags head. Pours jet black with nose of chocolate and dried fruits. Tastes of dark fruits, coffee, roasted malt, milk chocolate, and vanilla. U get some booziness and it finishes sweet. Creamy mouthfeel and medium bodied

arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2012
22oz bottle $5.99. Dark black, sizable brown head. Smells like a stout but nothing wowed me. The taste was rich stout with a distinct pine on the back end, very intriguing and I wonder what varieties of hops were used in this beer. Overall this beer was a very good value for the money.

Nice dark brown/black pour. Smaller head. Aroma and Taste are virtually the same. - rich milk chocolate, slightly woody, dark roasted nut, cocoa, boffee - fairly bitter. Very creamy mouthfeel. Would make a fantastic dessert beer. Apleasant surprise from this brewer .

Thick beer, chocolate up front and coffee and lots of roast in the finish, someburnt parts. Appearance of a chocolate ice cream soda. Much more bitter than sweet, consistent with the style. Spot of wood.Big mouthfeel. Good drinking.
