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.

Very bold sweetish coffee flavor, like coffee with sweet cream. Vanilla was definitely in there too. Very good stout.

Bottle: Good nose, coffee, hot cocoa, carmel. Reddish brown/black color. Small to no head. Looks like motor oil pouring out. Chocolate, coffee,light cream, some grapefruit, in the flavor. Creamy and bitter. Not as thick as it looks though. Very tasty.

I'm thinking this is a lactic stout. Why? It disagreed with me. I'm not lactose intolerant; as a matter of fact some of my best friends are dairy products. I just don't like a beer that argues with me. "I'm a sweet stout," it said. "No you're not," I countered. But it kept insisting that it was, so to shut it up and prove my point, I drained my glass. Not very sweet stout-tasting. Thick, dark head and plenty of roastiness. Decent for a stout, but nothing to write home about. Had at RB Philly gathering February 2004.

One of the darkest beers I've ever seen. It looked like tar pouring into my glass - luckily it didn't taste like tar. It's actually a very good stout. Has a nice chocolatey flavor with a burnt quality to it. Not much head. Typical stout aroma. Very good.

Deep black in colour with a creamy coffee coloured head. Aroma of bittersweet dark chocolate, coffee and raosted malt. Flavour of silky smooth, medium body with coffee, chocolate, a lots of roasted malt. Finished with a long medium bitterness. Thank's beerhugger for sharing this with me.

Absolutely delicious. Inky with a creamy tan head that drips lovingly down the side of the glass. Rich dark chocolate fondue beckons you and hints of roasted malt further add to the enticement. Flavour is Holy Cow! good with a subtle bitter aftertaste. Wonderful.

This bottled brew poured a small head of fine to large sized dark brown colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a good lace. The body was opaque as opaque can get dark black in color and had no visible carbonation. The aroma was nice with a variety of note to it. There was malt dark roasted malt roasted molasses and hops in it. The mouth feel was tingly smooth and hoppy. The flavor contained notes of molasses coffee and dark roasted malts. An excellent stout I'd love to have again.
