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.

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.

Skyview (5283) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 5, 2007
Picked up a bottle from Coffee Ground in Eau Claire, WI. Pours a very dark, opaque dark brown, with a tan frothy foam head. Aroma of lodge wood smoke, chocolate barley malt with some caramel. Taste of coffee, dark chocolate, some herbs and even smoky peat. Moderate bitter finish but pleasant. The smoky fire wood aftertaste is very memorable. Nice!

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 4, 2007
Bottle. Pours ruby black with beige head, and a few beads of liquid stayed atop the foam. The aroma is roasted malt, some astringency, hints of baker’s chocolate. The flavor is baking cocoa and weak coffee, with some faint burned-biscuit notes. Planty hoppiness dreis out the finish and lingers into the aftertaste. Mouthfeel leaves something to be desired.

DocLock (8331) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2007
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours deep brownish black with 1-finger tan head. Aroma of roasty chocolate malt, some chocoff and molasses. Tastes rich, roatsy malty, with a solid chocolate flavor, plus some molasses and figs. Rich, smooth palate.

badgerben (4562) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Black color with a thin head. Good aroma of oats and coffee. The taste was a little bit of a let down as it seemed to devolve into a slightly sour malty mass. Not much else going on.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Deep copper-brown body with a velvet cream head. Grassy unripened fruit, chocolate and squash aromas. Grassy hop character in the aroma, plus sourdough notes. Modest chocolate and roast emerge as the other characters breath out. Medium body and semi-sweet palate. Mediocre.

gottalottaibu (243) - charlotte, North Carolina, USA - MAR 27, 2007
saw this for some time and finally decided to give it a shot. poured pitch black with a nice frothy thick head. light toasty aroma with very little sweetness. flavor is very watery and light. minimal roasted coffee notes. I dont pick up on any of the chocolate. more of a burnt coffee. not bad but definately not something to seek out.

JK (4837) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Thanks to Brewfiend for sharing. This is a solid but unspectacular beer. The flavor and aroma have choclate and roasted malt with oatmeal taste. Black and medium palate.

Shag (2655) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - MAR 24, 2007
A black appearance with a moderate tan head. A faint aroma of chocolate and roasted malts. The flavor is rather mild with some coffee and a hint of chocolate. A thin palate for a stout. Overall this is pretty good but nothing out of this world.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Dark pour with nothing big in the nose. Maybe chocolate or maybe not. This was my last bottle and I wonder if it turned as the chocolate was no where near what I remember. Anyway, not an age worthy beer.
