COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not for the faint hearted! Our stout rewards the palate with robust flavor of roasted malts (malts are roasted like coffee beans) and heavy hops. A creamy smooth surprise.

ThreeCats (617) - ISRAEL - JAN 31, 2015
Dark rich burgundy with an off white head. Aroma of roast and caramel, with a drier roast and ash character coming out more as beer warms. Taste of to roast, toast, and some ash and coffee notes. The "sweet" part of the beer is definitely noticeable, as is it is not nearly as dry as a dry stout. Light to medium body and lower carbonation make this beer very drinkable. A nice example of the style.

Dark black. Smells chocolately. Tastes like milk chocolate. Sweet. Somewhat buttery. Slightly roasted. Vanilla. Some hops cut through at the end of the taste. This is really enjoyable.

Frothmeister (597) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
650ml bottle. Pours black with clear crimson highlights when held up to the light, and a two finger beige head. Cocoa, dark roast coffee, mineral notes, and light ashy notes on the nose. Medium bodied with light ash, coffee, mild acidity, and molasses that continues on almost the same as it starts with some dark chocolate, and citrus in the bitter finish. It’s a solid session stout. No complaints.

33cl @ bottle. Ottima scura di questo birrificio californiano. Cioccolato e caffé persistenti per una scura molto dolce.

Very nice black pour w/ a retaining thin tan head that leaves a circle of lacing. The aroma is quite coffee like & of dark chocolate. The taste is both bitter & creamy at the same time. The roasted notes linger while the beer remains smooth & drinkable. Pretty darn good!
