COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Chocolate malt and roasted barley provide the dark color and fully body of chocolate stout. Toasy accents and a hoppy dryness add to this smooth brew. An old time favorite you’ll remember.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - APR 29, 2007
Nice chocolate in the nose, and pours with a beautifully dark richness that reminds one of the fine loam of good farmland. Tastes of earthy, smooth chocolate with subtle coffee undertones. Neither as complex nor as flavorful as I prefer, but a good sipping brew for a hot afternoon.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 25, 2007
Very dark, very black, with a thick, fluffy, lacey cocoa/tanned head. Aroma, uttered out in quick association: cream, milk, sweet, chocolate, coffee, rich, cocoa, earthy, lush, uplifting, ...nice. Taste: sweetness, richness, chocolateyness, full-bodied, full-flavored, with a good stretch of cocoa riding it out all the way through. Chunky, chocolatey, and very drinkable. An easy-drinking chocolate stout, not too thick, not too rich, but with plentiful taste. Won’t knock anyone off their pedestal, but will bring deliciousness down the throats of any imbiber.

Braincage1 (147) - Cary, North Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2007
Bottle. Very dark black color. The little head that it has being light tan. Toasty chocolate aroma is pleasant. Taste begins with some very brief sweetness followed by the malt chocolate flavor that it promises. The finish tastes of coffee and lasts for quite a while on the back of the tongue. Not too shabby.

iradog (32) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2007
Pours a very dark blak with a medium/thin head. The aroma has choclate and a litlle fruityness. very malty and roasted that disgues most any other flaver.

tennisjoel (1185) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - APR 13, 2007
Pitch black pour, with a very thin khaki head. Chocolate, smoke, and some faint cherry aromas. Flavor is strong on the roasty malts. Chocolate is harder to detect in the flavor profile. A bit one dimensional. An average stout, but certainly nothing to write home about.

egajdzis (5456) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 13, 2007
Poured dark brown, near opaque, with a medium sized, tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, light smoke, and pine. Taste of roasted malts, strong chocolate, with caramel, and a hoppy finish.

Hangover (1079) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - APR 10, 2007
Dark brown with a thin tan head. Roasty and chocolate aroma. More of the same in the taste, but there is a nice smokeyness and some coffee. Both add to a nice, bitter finish. Slightly watery. Pretty good.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - APR 7, 2007
Pours dark brown with a small head. Aroma of deep roasted malts (chocolate and coffee). Taste introduces some bitterness and smoke. Medium to heavy body. Not exactly complex, but really good taste.
