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

Near black colour but with mahogany highlights. Aroma is of sweet chocolatey malts. The flavour is also sweet, the overall character rather lightish - mainly chocolate and sugar. Kind of like if you brewed a Foreign Stout specifically to serve as a dessert.

bhensonb (11251) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Aroma of toasted malt and coffee. Near opaque brown/black color with a tan head leaving lacey rings. Near full in body. Moderate in carbonation. Fair amount of coffee flavor dominating toasted/burnt malt. Finish is burnt malt bitter. Never distinguished hop. Very nice stout. Half way to Imperial?
