COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Creamy and substantial, this brew is bursting with the flavor of dark roasted grains. Oats add a soft velvety texture that blends well with the distinct malty flavor.

Black. Actually sucks light out of a room. Completely, totally opaque. Fresh coffee aroma. Full, rich palate. Coffee and burnt toast in the falvor, then a mellow but bone dry hop presence. Big malt flavors, too, with maybe a little smoke flavors. Very filling, very satisfying.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 138. This draft brew was sampled at the Brew Pub in Knoxville Tennessee and served by an attentive staff that included the Owner, the bar manager, Daniel Goss, and the assistant brewer Joey Barbarito. This brew poured a large sized head of dark brown colored fine to medium sied long lasting bubbles that left behind an excellent lacing and a dark brown opaque body with no visible carbonation. The aroma was nice with dark malts and mollasses while the mouthfeel was thick smooth and had a mild stout finish. The flavor was very nice with dark malt mollasses and no coffee. It was a very drinkable brew that I enjoyed very much. Nice job Joey!

On tap at the Downtown Grill. Poured dark brown with ruby highlights and a dense brown head. Smoky, roasty coffee aroma. Flavor is smoky, coffee, toffee, caramel, and the finish is quite smooth and satisfying. An excellent stout. I can see why they always seem to run out and am glad to have finally had the chance to try it!

Draft at brwer. Pours a jet black with a tan head. Scent is roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is big coffee with roasted malt. Drawback was the water like feel.

Unusual coconut aroma mixed with chocolate and coffee. Nice full body with a nice bitter finish.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2009 Draft. Opaque black with a medium and lasting head. Aroma is peppery, woody, and metallic coffee. Flavor is coffee, charred wood with slight smoke, peppery metallic molasses and marshmallow. Palate is medium bodied, slightly watery and smooth. Dryish finish. Hops seem to dominate the malt a bit much, but a good beer nonetheless.

Had this with the Downtown Grill & Brewery sampler. It was good but compared to the others, it was a step down. A little to strong for my tastes. But certainly not bad.

hotstuff (4058) - Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2003
Draft at Downtown Grill & Brewery in Knoxville, TN. This beer formed an average sized light brown head with fine-large sized bubbles that were mostly lasting. The body was opaque and uncarbonated with a dark brown hue. The nose was chocolate and coffee with a malty and coffee flavor that had a lingering aftertaste. The palate was creamy and full bodied. This beer had excellent lacing.
