Heavily roasted black and chocolate malts are added to our Pale base malt to create a uniquely bitter and rich finish to our Stout. With a rich, coffee-like texture and a dry and smooth finish, itís the perfect winter companion with any of our winter oyster dishes. And if that werenít enough, it makes the perfect black and tan along with our Pale Ale.

5th Epic and Rare Gathering. Random Japanese micro that isnít Hitachino, cool! Medium to dark brown appearance. Very little nose, no matter how hard I tried. Light coffee flavors. Very gentle overall. Very dry and light bodied, touch of bitterness on the finish. Interesting. A bit too carbonated for my tastes.

Drake (8981) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle at the 5th Annual Epic Beer Tasting in Richmond, VA, November 28, 2010. Pours nearly black with ruby highlights. Large tan frothy head. Decent head retention and lacing. Aroma of dry roasted malts with a sweet finish. The taste is very dry roasted malts, smoke and caramel. Very strongly carbonated. Medium bodied. Nice.

DuffMan (7027) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle. Gassy pour, very dark brown, towering tan head. Fruity yeasty aroma with background roast, not a great start. Chocolate and roast fight it out with fruity tart yeast for dominance, all marred by something vaguely plastic. Reedy, bitter finish. Maybe I had an off bottle? I canít believe this took a medal...

Strykzone (5065) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2010
A black pour that looked a bit thin. A big frothy head is dark tan that slowly collapses in on itself. A distinct aroma has a bit of brandy with some light smoke and is very pleasant. Hops lead the flavor profile and give the beer an earthy and bitter start. Hops give this stout a grapefruit taste and it borders on a black IPA. There is also some malt notes here that are espresso. Again that light smoke. This is a lower tier stout.

jtclockwork (8906) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours black with foamy tan head. Nose of barley, turpentine and grassy yeast. Taste is grass, tin can, hops, malt, stale coffee and lemongrass. I guess it is supposed to be a stout.

Wombata (468) - Kobe, JAPAN - AUG 25, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2013 Aroma: Chocolate, creamy. Palate: Mid-weight, creamy. Flavor: Bitter chocolate, creamy. A long finish--chocolate and medium-bitter coffee. Comments: A previous time that I had this on draft I gave it a 28 (pear, burnt coffee and unsweetened bitter chocolate--thin body). Clearly the body was better on this one and no pear flavor.

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2010
Think maybe I got a bottle thatís starting to turn. Even so, I donít pick up much in the way of a dry stout in there. Poured with a giant, light brown, foamy, frothy, head and a little lace. Color is a very dark, almost opaque black brown. Aroma is fruity, a bit tart, a bit roasty malt. Flavor is like nose but the tartness comes out more, roasty malt and fruit. Very carbonated and ok body. Tartness stands out in the finisih. Canít finish the bottle.

AmEricanbrew (6004) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Dark brown color with a huge tan head that took a few minutes to settle. Dry dark malt, bandaid aromas. medium bodied with soft carbonation. Dry dark malt, burnt hay, dusty dark chocolate flavors; dry stout indeed.

thirdeye11 (5634) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 29, 2010
(500ml bottle thanks to blutt59) near black with a lasting light tan head. Nose of fudge, cream and dark chocolate. Taste of watery chocolate, cocoa with a very dry finish. This is lacking on flavor a bit and some nuts are in the finish as well.
