COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep and malty. Large quantities of specialty malts give this ale such depth of flavor. Caramel, brown, and chocolate malts, and black barley are all included. Magnum hops are added during the boil to balance the substantial maltiness and Willamette hops provide a nice spicy finish. Our house yeast ferments this beautiful black beer.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2010
This beer pours a dark brown/black with a medium thick and foamy tan head that recedes steadily. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Roasted malt and chocolate in the nose. Medium body with flavors of toasted malt, chocolate and coffee. The finish is malty with a mild hops and coffee aftertaste. Decent overall, glad this is the beer that introduced me to Dick’s.

12oz. Bottle from trade with SuzyGreenberg: Faint aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Poured black in color with a small, brown head that disappeared except for around the edges. Opaque. Lightly sparkling. Very good lacing. Lightly sweet and slightly bitter flavor. Tastes of roasted malt, chocolate, lactose, and hops. Medium body. Creamy texture becomes lightly dry. Average carbonation. Roasted malt, chocolate, and slight lactose finish is lightly dry.

12oz bottle, courtesy of scrizzz. Thanks, Clint! Pours a rather dark, cola-brown color; light-tan head with weak retention and solid lacing. Lots of cola and chocolate and creamy caramel in the aroma; some pleasant pine (?) and citrus bitterness; balanced, creamy, and straightforward. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: loads of milk chocolate, lightly roasted malts, caramel and tootsie roll character; moderate, quietly expressed bitterness, not even close to the density of the best imperial stouts, this is still a reasonably drinkable, hefty stout in its own right: lots of clearly expressed chocolate and caramel maltiness, well-balanced, hidden alcohol; tasty and drinkable. Lasting finish showing some nice mineral bitterness alongside milk chocolate, caramel, and cocoa.

humulushound (242) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2010
Pours black with a thick mocha-colored head. Aroma is molasses, smoke, coco hints of expresso. Bitter hops, chocolate and roasted malts with a little smoke in the finish. Body is medium and creamy with light carbonation. A nice stout but lacking in alcoholic strength and complexity when compared with most imperial stouts.

12 oz. bottle via Mystery Swap 4.0 (kenb?). Pours dark brown in color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma is dark roasted malt with notes of creamy chocolate. The flavor is roasted malt, chocolate, mild caramel, that combine for moderate sweetness. Light earthy bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. This is a drinkable, yet pretty straight forward stout. Seems more suited as a stout or sweet stout rather than an imperial stout.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 15, 2010
In the bottle. Pours black with a huge big bubbled brown head. A really good stout but not so much an Imperial stout. Thick chocolate and lots of sweetness might best be described as a sweet stout with a decent blast of roastedness. The finish is milky roasted and smoky.

Bottle. A nice imp stout. Nutty, malty with caramel notes and a mildly hoppy finish. Would try it again.
