COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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, it’s the perfect winter companion with any of our winter oyster dishes. And if that weren’t enough, it makes the perfect black and tan along with our Pale Ale.

bhensonb (10345) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Bottle from Ledgers Liquors. Pours dark, but it’s ruby where the light comes through. Head is a huge 4+ finger tan - see the picture! Aroma of smooth burnt toast. Not the harsh version. Medium body with lots of frothy carbonation. Flavor is pretty hoppy over dark burnt malt - but smooth - not at all harsh. It finishes more chocolate than not. Coffee pops out after awhile.

Drake (7940) - 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.

KyotoLefty (5895) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2009 Bottle from the brewery. Pitch black with a tall tan head. Aroma of figs, cereals, roasted barley, some hops, molasses. Rich, dark, sweet, aroma. Rich flavor of dark fruits, roasted barley, thick rich grains, molasses, coffee, chocolate. Very complex and extremely well balanced. Dry overall but with lots of rich flavor and a good amount of sweetness, but not at all oversweet or cloying. Finish is dead dry, burnt with a touch of hops, dry, refreshing, light, a bit sour. A relatively light dry stout, but with very full flavor. Excellent.

Tap in El Nubichimo, Yokohama care of TimE. Black opaque with thin tan head. Nose is deep deep dark chocolate and then rosted grain, almost burnt notes and some milkiness. Taste is roasted grain, dark chocolate, and then coffee finish. Body is quite light though and not much trace of hop. Lovely choc though.

kramer (4686) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2010
16.9 oz bottle. Pours a dark black body with a rather large fizzy dark brown head that took a good long while to settle. The nose is dry roasty malt with a bit of coffee and a light hint of hops. The flavor is dry with a very distinct brett influence that almost dominates more than the roastiness. Minimal light bitterness up front, but the finish is a funky brett and chocolate mixture that’s really quite pleasing. The body is fairly light and airy, which is somewhat due to the brett infection I think. Lots of micro fine fizzy carbonation. This was quite obviously infected, but rather "clean" in that it only tastes like brett infection. Very much reminds me of one of Bullfrog’s "Kegs Gone Wild" beers. We need more Stouts and Porters intentionally dosed with brett.

thirdeye11 (5393) - 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.

Wombata (358) - 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.
