Aroma is pleasing yet not very strong primarily chocolate,coffeeand other malt aromas. Appearance is Very dark black with light brown head that faded withing a couple of minutes. Taste is smooth bitterness of roasted grains and coffee with medium body, Hop bitterness compliments the grain and coffee well without taking over. Not very exciting on the palate the flavors kind of flow and then are gone I would expect more complexity from "7 grain". This is a really good tasting beer that I think is better on the whole than picking apart each component. I consider it an above average stout that I did enjoy.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2009
Bottle shared at Half Time. Pours a deep black with a large ugly tan head. Coffee, roast, smoke, chocolate on the nose. More coffee and roast, with a light sweetness. Finishes roasty with more coffee flavors, and a nice sweetness after the roast bitterness, possibly vanilla in nature. Tasty stuff. This (and two others) was brought to Half Time by a guy who is on the west coast and now doing distribution stuff I think. I’m hoping that we get this on the east coast…really yummy.

Really enjoyed this brew. Intriguing take on a grain stout, and definitely pulled off well in the blend of 7 different grains. Dry and roasty on the nose and up front on the flavors, this moves into a lightly malted blend of a blast of Earthen tastes. Bits of dirt and burnt flavors exist in a well melded way. Not too heavy, so it drinks quite easy. Good stuff!!
