COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our award-winning stout is rich and malty with hints of chocolate and coffee. It’s what espresso would be if it had the gumption to be beer. Makes a great dessert...or meal.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2005
opaque black color with foamy tan head, smells of burnt coffee with hints of chocolate, generally a sweet smell. flavor a sweet coffee taste to match the aroma, loads of malts, but a little too much bitter hops in the tail. a nice chewy body, almost a solid feel in your mouth. if it weren’t for the bitterness, this would have been outstanding.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2005
Poured almost black. Aroma of roasted malt espresso, and some chocolate. Flavors match aroma plus some hop flavor in the background with a light bitter finish. Light to medium body and a smooth and creamy mouthfeel.

Tap at Redbones: Opaque black, small layer of an off white head. Nice intense chocolate milk roasted nose. Roasted chocolate taste - blend all in all.

MrRomero (1976) - Nolanville, USA - MAR 6, 2005
Tap at Redbones: poured black with a tan head. Seems to taste like a thousand other stouts. Roasted malt, mild hoppiness. Slightly burnt flavor. Some coffee notes. Pretty tasty but nothing spectacular.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Bottle. Deep dark brown with a light brown rich head. Aroma of American hops and roasted barley. Flavor has a big hop bitterness ad flavor component. Roasty as well. Some bittersweet chocolate. Smooth malt underneath. I can see inconsistancies coming from BC, but this to me is a very good Stout.

spikee (96) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 19, 2005
Aroma is seriously lacking - not much to speak of. Smells a touch like chemicals of some sort with a metallic hint. Pours a dark, velvety black with slight hints of purple. Zero head and very light lacing. Full-on burnt coffee and chocolate taste. The finish is a bit like the nose - a little too burnt with a roasted maltiness that seems somehow artificial. Good, though not great. Would buy again, but it wouldn’t necessarily be my first choice.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2004
UPDATED: MAR 16, 2005 There’s a strong burnt nose in this beer. It has a strong burnt, lightly paint, and strongly medicine taste and mouthfeel. You know, this is a pretty standard micro stout - over-burnt but, of course, rather respectable. Oh yeah, there’s some dark chocolate in there too.

cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 7, 2004
Poured a rich dark black, velvety, impenetrable and almost purple. Had a luscious brown foamy head. Dark burnt espresso/chocolate smell. Pretty rich, a nice all around stout. Only quam I have is that it was lacking just a little in complexity in flavor - I just might have to let a bottle sit for a long while and try it again later.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 28, 2004
Color: a solid black, head: large, toasted brown, soon to settle. Aroma: richly roasted, peppery, dark and bitter. A rush of lush, lovely bitterness presents itself on first sip, and has a short, but pleasant stay on the palate. Full bodied, perfectly balanced, a tasty and well-made stout. I was searching for something else in flavor, and came up lacking. Seemed a bit limp at times, when I was up for a challenge. And how is this "the Original American Ale?" Did it bubble out of a brew kettle at Plymouth Rock?
