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.

"this was my first ever chocolate stout back in 2001(?). pours jet black, sweet malt and chocolate up front, nice body, if a little on the thin side. smooth, with a slightly surprising, slightly bitter finish. solid beer, great as a float."

worldbeertaste (1693) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Dark brown with a thin, tan, ring, disappearing, slightly lacy head. Nice smells of roast wih caramel, raisins and lots of deep chocolaty malt. Soft bitter roasty a nice sweetness and a dry roasty centre and finishes with sweet malt, chocolate and a lingering dark fruity raisin bitterness.

GlennHendry (17) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2014
Black as treacle with a creamy and classic head, with lots of roasted coffee and bitter chocolate on the nose. Then more coffee and chocolate with a little nuttiness and a rich caramel malt finish. Damn tasty

loubar (85) - Los Gatos, California, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Rich taste of caramel, chocolate, coffee and nuts. The kind of taste that one would associate w/a bitter finish. However, to my surprise and delight it has a smooth malty finish.

orange_3084 (124) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - AUG 29, 2014
Pours near black with medium slight tan head. Coffee notes apparent on the nose. Dry cocoa more noticeable as it warms. Cream body, but not particularly heavy. Taste is nicely sweet with a mild toasty bitterness. Finish cleaner than most stouts, as just a touch of roasty flavour lingers.
