A heavy strong stout brewed with coffee, brown sugar and oats. With its powerful quality and morning ingredients it seems parallel to a solid dawn session at Blacks. An inside connection to boutique roasted fare trade beans we were granted the opportunity to make this exceptional brew.

Ughsmash (7507) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottled. Poured deep brown with an easily-resuscitated toasted beige head. The aroma picked up roasted coffee and biscuity malts with a little herbal weirdness around. The flavor found burnt and lightly astringent black and coffee malts.. touches of vanilla accented.. finished smoky and a bit astringent. Medium-plus bodied and a tad sharp on the palate.. moderate carbonation.. OK stuff.

[2/13/15] Draught at Rogue Ales Public House in San Francisco. Black with a brownish head. Weird aroma with very vegetal coffee. Roasty flavor with vegetal coffee and a bitter finish. Medium to full-bodied.

JaBier (6773) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Bottle sample at the tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 2/5/15. Darkest brown pour with a thick light brown head. Aroma of butter, malt, chocolate, caramel and roast. Malty and buttery flavor with chocolate and roast accents before a boozy finish.

A decent stout, but a bit boring. Pours a slightly watery black with a tan head. Smells of coffee, that's about it. Taste is again a bit watery, with lots of coffee and a bit of dark chocolate. Kind of one note.

arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thick black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of big caramel, toffee, brown sugar, into nice coffee bean, espresso, almost a mocha note into a bit of cocoa powder, slight roast. Taste is a mix of cocoa powder, roast, coffee, nice dark fruit into big molasses and brown sugar, touch of spice, finishing slightly sweet, slightly bitter. Nice.

burg326 (5264) - Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2015
Poured a dark brown almost black color with aromas of light roasted malt, coffee, light earth and some chocolate. Flavors are coffee and bakers chocolate with some light nuts and some ash and earth. Solid and enjoyable, glad I got to try this little gem.

RedSox2004 (1599) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Deep dark brown with a dense one-finger tan brown head and a bit of lace. Aromas of roasted coffee, nuts, cocoa powder and a hint of smoke. Flavor is mostly rich chocolate malts, with big contributions from the coffee and coca, accompanied by licorice, herbs and gentle grassy hops. Full body, super creamy and smooth mouthfeel, little carbonation and a rich, decadent mocha finish.

Gerbeer (3022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 6, 2014 500 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown with short tan head. Aromas of espresso, ash and heavily roasted malts. Flavors of acidic black coffee, bitter dark chocolate and dry roasted malts. Surprisingly simple though dry and nice.

Fatehunter (2150) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Pours a finger and half of tan head on a black body. The aroma is burnt and roasted malt, molasses and dark chocolate. Excellent. The taste is a great blend of coffee and chocolate bitterness, molasses and roasted malt sweetness, finishes with a touch of burnt wood. The texture is smooth with low carbonation. Super drinkable and flavorful.
