COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2013 & 2010 Gold Medal Winner at the Great American Beer Festival in the Foreign Stout category.

That time of year when the day seems to fade away. Drifting further into the darkness with each passing day. Volume 1 - Foreign Stout - Pours black with licorice, espresso bean, molasses, and black cardamom notes that give way to a feeling of self loathing, burnt opportunities and smoked relationships.

(bottle) Pours dark brown with a tan head that settles to a thin film. Aroma is of Malt o Meal Coco Roos and it reminds me of Northfield, MN. Some coffee and dark roasted malt also make their presence known. Bit of chocolate and a lightly tart/sourness is also present in the aroma. Gets vegetal too. Taste of dark chocolate, roasted malt, smoke, salt, and peanut butter. Mouthfeel is full and carbonation is a touch high. Pretty good stuff.

vyvvy (5858) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 10, 2010
Pours very dark brown with a dense dark tan head. The aroma has dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, cream, licorice and is nicely bitter and smooth. Medium / thin body that starts smooth and silky and ends up crisp and sharp with a light carbonation to it. There is a real snap to it at the end. The flavor starts with the malt and chocolate from the aroma with some dark berries and is quite dry and bitter. The finish has some char that comes through. Very nice beer.

tap @ Rattle n Hum - Dark brown/black pour with some red highlights. Head is small and tan. Huge arouma of coffee, nuts, almonds and butter. Roasted chocolate malts with springy carbonation. There’s some astringency in there, but it’s not too unpleasant. Creamy body, thick mouthfeel. some molasses and brown sugar notes. This is my kind of beer.

MrBunn (2736) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Bottle. Unimpressive pour... looks more like a cola or rootbeer than a stout. Lots of fizzy carbonation sticking to the side of the glass and a bit of a fizzy head. Aromas are alright, but not too terribly exciting, either. A bit of an earthy and coffee-like maltiness with a little bit of a tanic aroma to it, kind of like wet oak leaves or something. Flavor is much more interesting than either aroma or appearance. A pretty well developed chocolate presence throughout, with some peat-like earthiness and a little bit of a creaminess. In spite of the rich flavors, this is pretty thin on the tongue. Good stuff once you get past the front door.

I had heard quite a bit of hype for this so i was very curious, picked up a sixer at roof bro’s in paducah, ky. Pour is black with brown head, looks like a stout should. The flavor is more complex than your average foreign stout, I really enjoyed this smooth and very drinkable brew and i killed the six pack in a night!

williamherbert (1499) - Syracuse, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2010
The aroma is burnt coffee malt. Nutty toffee and caramel. Hazelnut and brandy, bourbon whiskey. Appears jet black. Creamy, puffy light brown head. Intimidating. The flavor is supremely bitter. Burnt coffee and cookies. Nutty with some nutmeg and toffee sweetness. A bitter finish. Hints of chocolate and charcoal. Mocha. Feels thick and oily but with a gritty tension to it. Strong, challenging, outstanding.

Bottled. A deep red beer with a huge brown head. The aroma has notes of caramel, malt, and flowers. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, nuts, and a bit of wood, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.
