A dark rich black stout utilizing humongous amounts of roasted barley, black malt, flatted barley and Warrior, Green Bullet and Willamette hops. Thick enough to fill potholes!

Large shared bottle in Atlanta. A: dark reddish brown body is nearly black and opaque in the glass. Flavor: Rich and dark roasty without char. Enticing aroma. Smooth, full body with medium-light carbonation.

nearbeer (4286) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2015
1 liter swingtop. Opaque ebony with a thin film of espresso-colored creamy foam on top. Aroma of dark chocolate, mocha cream, and touches of char and toffee. Flavors of coffee, char, bittersweet chocolate, dark toffee, prune and hints of blackberry. The blackstrap molasses shows just a bit in the long finish, along with a touch of citrus and dried leaf. Heavy body never gets sticky and has a mostly smooth, medium carbonation that suits this beer well. Very easy drinking for such a heavy bodied brew.

UDBeernut (2235) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2015
Canada tick bro in the heart of da souf. Pours the part with a light lacing trail. It’s tough to follow the intricacies of this brew with billy bob asking what home brew is in the can. Let’s start wif a day NYS home brew I shat last week... But I digress. Some licourice, mild espresso all wrapped in a full bodhi. Fuck @waynefish1 for ever.

tmoreau (3051) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Shared 32 oz. bottle, poured to snifters, showing a black/brown hue, with a presentable layer of frothy, brownish tan, head foam, and clingy dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was subtly roasted, with some cocoa, but a stronger scent of prune & raisin. Medium+ bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste included hop bitterness that offered roasted, woody, & earthy qualities, a touch of treacle sweetness, and some alcohol presence. Decent, hearty brew.

asheft (2760) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle. Sweet and resinous chocolate aroma with some red fruit and vanilla. Opaque black with clear brown highlights under an eternal, creamy tan flannel blanket. Potent dark chocolate and pumpernickel and vanilla flavour with light sherry, nutty notes and very faint red fruit. Full body, moderate carbonation, slightly warming.

Bahumat (139) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 9, 2015
Mmm. Thick white head that lingers, with a nice mouthfeel, and the longest deep cocoa finish. Yum. This is a great beer to pair with spicy steaks. Lives up to its name. Overall: 3.8. Would buy again.

dmac (4834) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2015
500ml swing cap shared at the Central Jersey BA gathering. Poured a silky black body with a huge frothy dark beige head. Aroma/flavor of burnt marshmallows, dark toast, soy sauce, cola and a touch of tobacco. Smooth body, lighter carbonation and a silky mouthfeel. Good beer.

exeter (470) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 9, 2015
Pours black like, well, tar. I good sized head that get the top cloudy to the bottom. Great lacing. The Taste is of sweet molasses and coca, roasted barley and dark fruits. Great balance. It’s very warming. Excellent brew.

MunBro (842) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 30, 2014
Very rich dark stout with a gorgeous tan head leaving lots of lacing. Big malt flavours with a full mouthfeel. A great one!

AncreSteam (13) - - NOV 28, 2014
Pours thick and black. Licorice and malt on the nose; perhaps coffee notes as well. Medium dark tan head that leaves spotty lacing. The head lasts for a minute or so, which I like. This is a full bodied stout that is a pleasure on the palate with a full mouth feel.
