COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Brewers favorite, our stout is made with a special blend of six different malts and hops from the Pacific Northwest. We then use nitrogen carbonation to create a rich and creamy brew with a wonderful roasted flavor.

I purchased a growler of this for a tasting at csbosox house. This poured black with a thin white head. The aroma was chocolate and coffee with some grass. The taste was toasted coffee with some anise. This was watery with a paper like finish. Some potential, but they need to take it off nitro.

Pours a deep almost black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate, caramel and honey roasted nuts. Flavor of milk chocolate milkshake, touch of caramel.

Thanks to Jon for convincing his family to bring this from Kansas. Dark black body with a small creamy light brown head. Sweet chocolate and roasted malt aroma. Sweet creamy chocolate and roasted malt flavor.

Sampler at the brewpub. Comes almost black with a nice thick tan head. Aroma of malt and coffee. Taste is roasted malt, coffee, and a touch of hops. Rich and creamy. Nice.

theisti (3297) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 16, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2008 4 oz taster at the brewpub. Pour is all black with a well formed and retentive tan nitro head. Aroma of slightly sour malt and some coffee roast. Taste is coffee roastiness, some mild vanilla sweetness and milkiness. Palate seems a bit flat, that’s probably the nitro. This was decent, though.

Sickeningly sticky beer. An incredible amount of caramel and butter in what should be a beer dominated by its chocolate or coffee roastiness. I had trouble finishing it.

I have to say this was a pretty tasty stout. Strong roasted coffee aroma, with some chicory, and perhaps a bit of licorice. Just bitter enough and not overly dry on the palate, with some nice coffee and chocolate flavors.

Well, I have mixed feelings about this beer. First of all - I can see this as highly comparable to the now ’obsolete in the US’ Guinness Extra Stout. This is a strong, heavy bitter stout with some noticeable malt sweetness up front, roasted flavors all over, and a serious bitter finish. Very dark and opaque, showing red-brown at the edges. Rich malty and roasty aroma. Here’s the drawback: this beer is nitro’d and sits in the glass, and in the mouth, rather flat and lifeless. With natural carbonation (or even real CO2 rather than N), this would become a lively thick champion of a stout, and a viable alternative to the good old bottle-conditioned Irish brewed Guinness we can’t get anymore in the US. Btw: 2 pints of this stuff put me right to sleep!

Had this beer every time I have visited the brewpub and its never been off, which is something very special for this brewery. Looks great off nitro, adds a thickness to the mouthfeel I don’t get much from their other beer. Plenty of roast a unsweetened cocoa and all very drinkable. If you only get one beer here make it this one.
