COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth yet powerful stout brewed with ten different grains. The complex malt character is gently balanced by the hop bitterness.

4 oz draft at Device Brewing. Black with tan head. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate, roast. Tastes of bitter roast, dark chocolate, bready notes. Medium body with a dry finish. Thin oily mouthfeel. Interesting idea to use English ale yeast but it doesn’t work for me in a RIS.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours near black with a nice tan head and a chocolate aroma. There is an intense chocolate and dark molasses flavor that is bittersweet with a hint of anise and the English yeast rounds the sharpness off the various tastes into a mellow culmination. Delicious.

From a pre-release sample enjoyed at Capitol Beer & Taproom. Pours near black with a modest tan head and a powerful coffee and treacle aroma. There is a chewy full-bodied dark malt flavor featuring notes of plum and coffee. This brew is complex enough to satisfy serious dark beer geeks and balanced enough to satisfy more casual beer lovers.

I should preface this by stating that I’m not really a stout drinker. That being said I prefee coffee or chocolate stouts when drinking them. I really enjoyed this beer. Everything you want from a stout. Thick. Rich. Low carbonation. Flavor. Not bitter. Smooth. A really enjoyable experience.

Taster at Whole Lotta Brews Going On at Whole Foods in Folsom. Aroma is slightly tart chocolate and smoke. Flavor has some medium roast coffee and chocolate with a neverending finish. Not really crisp. Pretty good RIS.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Draft in Sac. Pours almost black with a tan head and nice lacing. Aroma of roasty malt, chocolate, coffee and some licorice. Flavor is smooth, rich chocolate and roasted malt well hidden alcohol and a light burnt bitterness. Full body with smooth carbonation. Very good beer, very rich yet drinkable.

bhensonb (11064) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 3, 2013
Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours black with a tan head. Aromas of chocolate and perhaps coffee. Med + body. Flavors of smooth dark malt, dark fruits, a little treacle, and I think coffee. It’s very tasty. More than most.
