Killer stout from "do the ever go wrong?" Hoppin’ Frog. Love the bitter bitter oatmeal body, the "crushing" weight of barley with its intense roasted bitter notes makes me want to return to this over and over again. Chocolate’s and fruits hidden under a coffee with vanilla hints finish. Great, great beer.

First brew from this brewery...surprising since I live in the same state. Nice stout. Pours black, with a dark tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, bread, hay, and slight alcohol burn. Taste is similar, however, not much detection, if any, of alcohol. Very smooth, easy drinking. I could drink a couple of bombers in 1 sitting. Would recommend.

Strong tasting imperial stout, yet not overpowering, quite balanced. The oatmeal gives the beer a nice spicyness.

In short: Really good! Nice malty taste of roasted coffee and chocolate. Really well rounded taste that lasts for a while.

Pours very dark Brown, no light through, slight dark khaki thin head thin lacing. Aroma chocolate, coffee, alcohol toffee, caramel, earthy. Taste roast malt, coffee, bittersweet chocolate, sweet caramel, alcohol. Mouthfeel full body, creamy alcohol astringency and bite, low carbonation, sweet finish. Overall very good, rich, complex, finish a bit sweet, but perfect for the style. I can only imagine what a few years of age would do to this beer, need to get one for the cellar

Jaksmart (394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 26, 2014
Tap @ Fermentoren Aarhus. Pitch black motor oil color, with a beautiful light brown head with a voluptuous thickness. Aroma is dark chocolate, mild roasted coffee, vanilla, figs, sweet liquorice, molasses, port, sweet raisins. Very thick aroma which ticlkles the nostrils in a very sexual way. Taste is thick, thick 80+ chocolate, very insisting sweetness, molasses, boozy but with a very nice finish with a mild, cocoa-like bitterness that sticks to the palate. Lovely!
