COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pleasant smooth flavor and profile, rich but not grainy. Flavorful roasted malt, caramel, chocolate, and oats are prevalent, with low hop flavor and aroma.

A - Pours a bark brown-black color with a big two fingers of thick brownish head. The head hangs around forever, finally reducing down to a still sizeable layer leaving lots of lace on the glass in the process. S - Aroma is a mix of lots of roasted sweet caramel malts and some oats. There is also a touch of coffee and caramel in the background. T - Starts off with some sweet roasted caramel malt flavor with some oats in the background. Through the middle some sweet milk flavor and some chocolate flavors come through. The finish is a mix of roasted caramel and coffee flavors that linger nicely. M - Medium bodied with moderate-low carbonation. Feels super smooth and creamy. Finish is really creamy and roasty with some nice sweet notes. D - Very drinkable. The nitro tap really creates an outstanding looking beer here. The flavors are all really nicely balanced and the beer feels really great.

Draft, Tap NY. Thanks to the brewer for bringing over a full cup to taste. Found this smooth, dark, and creamy. Chocolate and roast dominate. Very easy to drink.

This one looks like an appetizing stout, with a dark brown body, and a fluffy white head. Great semi-sweet chocolate aroma, with hints of vanilla. Chewy mouthfeel, and a little bit of sweetness in the flavor is a great tease. Very creamy.

Had this one on draught in Glens Falls, New York. Deep black, nearly opaque color with a thick, brown head, nose of coffee, very complex taste with notes of apricot, bitter chocolate, and amaretto with a very soft finish. An outstanding sweet stout.

Roasted malts; leathery taste. Soft caramel notes in flavor and even more in the aroma. Silky feel, velvety. Soft tobacco notes. A hella dry beer with a nice soft finish.

Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2005
Malts rôtis, café, alcool, fruits des champs. Longue en bouche avec une mousse crémeuse. J’ai bien aimé.

Boliv (1148) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 29, 2011
Growler. Pours dark red, dark brown in the glass, with a small tan head. Aromas of coffee, raisin, chocolate and some cherry, and mildly tart fruit. The flavor is slightly bitter cocoa and earthy bitterness, sweet chocolate, and mocha. Creamy, with low carbonation and a dry finish. Pretty good. [818]

BiddleBrau (876) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2010
Almost black, little hazy, off-white dense head. Roasted malt with some sweetness in the nose. Roasty and burnt, more robust than their porter. Hint of oiliness in palate.

Served a deep dark brown with a hint of ruby. A Lasting tight head graces the top of the sampler glass. To the nose it is sweet chocolate, the olfactory equivalent of a tootsie roll. Smooth and light on the tongue, this beer quickly wins me over with its subtle maltiness and subdued hops. An easy choice for a winter session beer. Has a pleasant roasty character without the burnt or bitter notes characteristic of some other examples of the style. On tap at the brewpub in Glens Falls.
