COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rich Coffee and chocolate flavors dominate this opaque working class Ale. Stoutís extreme popularity among the British factory workers of the 1800ís may qualify it as the fuel for the Industrial Revolution. "By the time you get it, youíre too far out."

Draft at ncbc. Pours jet black with a dense and creamy burnt tan head. Tons of sheeting lace. Mild bready chocolate aromatics. This beer is evidently not intended to excite your nose holes. Beautiful, creamy, drenching thickish body, tons of residuals giving it real heft. Chocolate, roast, black bread, and a little bit of ash on the mid palate. Not super sweet, especially. Long roasty finish. Delectable.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2010
Rich chocolate nose, light but full bodied character, super dark and a dark tan head. Rich baking chocolate body, intense with roast, mild in a sneer, just big without trying to prove anything.

Draught at brewpub. Very creamy and maybe creamier than the porter stout. Smooth and fairly light, but in a good way. Coffee present.

[2975-20100626] Tap. Full roast malt aroma has quite a lot of coffee. Dark brown black body with a long-lasting creamy light brown head and thick lacing. Roasty coffee bitterness in the flavour with a long roast finish. Full body. Great bitter stout, quite enjoyable.
(@ Laurelwood NW Public House, Portland, OR)

jercraigs (8485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2010
2010-06-26. Black body with a nice foamy tan head. Dry roasty initial aroma over a sweeter dark malt core. 7+ Flavour is quite dry and bitter with a light ashen character to the roast. Roast combines with what I assume is a healthy dose of hop bitterness. Not to my tastes. Average palate lacks gravitas. On Tap at Laurelwood NW Public House, Portland.

Nose... lightly roasty with some hops character. Palate... burnt malt, burnt coffee (light roast), hints of molasses and chocolate, BBQ ash and a short finish.

Black-bodied with a loose chocolate head. The nose is heavy with molasses, black patent, and charcoal. To me, this beckons back to the old-time porters. Deep, robust, roastty, moderately burn body. Heapfuls of black patent.
