COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Raised in an almost cruel state of total darkness, our Black Strap Stout delights in being the complete opposite of a light beer. This one has full-flavor, full-depth, full-life, and of course full-carb. See it brought squinting into the light for the very first time in your glass. The humane thing to do is finish the pint before the protective head burns off.

On tap at Zeno’s. Pours a deep brown to black with a small dark tan head. Sweet roast, big dark bitter cocoa, bakers chocolate. Big chewy roast, almost a hint of smoke, then the dark molasses flavors come through. Long bitter dark chocolate finish. Nice stuff with some great alkaline bitterness.

Good brew, pours black with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate / molasses. Silky smooth in the mouth. Finishes burnt chocolate / coffee, with a hint of molasses sweetness.

12 oz tap at Industry Public House in Lawrenceville, Pittsburgh. Comes through as a heavyweight with minimal foaming and a heavy gravity. Tastes of tar and nicotine, like a favorite cigar. Truly one of the best in its class.

nike (889) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2013
draft, this may be my new favorite stout. Black pour, with brown head. Complexity in this brew, balanced, nice "bite" that a stout should have. Some smoky, bitter flavors as well. Full bodied. Highly recommend.

tcane7 (1576) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2013
Sample at the brewery. Pours black with mocha head. Nose roasted malt, chocolate, coffee. This is a very robust roast flavor - burnt dark roast coffee, ashtray, but still enjoyable.
