COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a meal in a glass. Brewed with 7 different malts and served cask-conditioned, you should be ready for a full onslaught of creamy stout intensity. Broadly in the style of a Foreign Extra Stout, this is our heaviest and most intense year-round offering.

Thanks to errl for sharing this beer. Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma and flavor are full of chocolate and roasted malt notes. I also get a bit of cream character that is very nice. There is also a hint of mint in the flavor. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Can via trade. actually poured this into a snifter. nose is cocoa with a weird piney thing too. pours pitch black with a large light brown head. Taste is a creamy and chocolate bliss. Very well balanced in terms of a light, just barely there roast and a full mouthfeel and creaminess without being too much. Seems to be missing some of the ester fruitiness that I prefer in this style when I drank it at first, but it seems to come through as it warms, but it could just be the creamiest. A very solid offering.

Beautiful black stout. Very little aroma, but what's there is coffee / dark chocolate. Very complex flavor. Coffee and chocolate, roasted malt, almost nutty. Thick bodies and chewy. Great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

from the can. pours very black with a hint of orange in the grey head. aroma is light roast with a sugary caramel or chocolate- i can’t fucking tell which at the moment. bitter roast with a slight smoke. walt would approve of how i came to have 3 of these cans, it involves a 780 mile road trip, many different work conversations, and some girl i just met telling me we were going to brew beers together if i move to santa fe. nice chocolate roast flavor near the end of this, just gets richer as it warms. Fuck all y’all i miss my friend.

Dark black pour from a tallboy can. Nice roasted malt nose. Creamy mouthfeel, lots of roasted malt, piney hops, slight charred woody notes. Just a touch of malt sweetness before a nice hop and chocolate bitterness in the finish. Very nice.

Can thanks to cocoapuph! Pours opaque black with a medium brown creamy head that dissipates slowly leaving nice lacing. Aroma is roasty, ashes, cocoa. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, a bit of anise. Full and rich in the mouth. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. This is a hella good stout for those who don’t like them sweet.
