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.

Impressive coffee nose upon opening the bottle. Chocolate & roasted malts are well blended in this medium bodied sweet stout. Just the right amount of bitterness in the aftertaste. Very drinkable stout at any temperature.

WabashMan (1009) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - JAN 10, 2004
Wow...while most stouts look really nice (in my opinion) this one is beautiful. Pours black as night with a large, thick, luxurious dark brown head. Nose is probably the "weak" point of the beer. Mostly roast and some chocolate/coffee notes, but it just doesn't quite match up to the rest of the brew. Flavor is full, roasty, and slightly vineous, despite the relatively low alcohol of the beer. Leaves a slight coffee flavor on the tongue for a long time.

y0cola (361) - fremont, California, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Smokey, dark moldy flavor. Not very coffeelike, but has hints of cherries and citrus with a bitter bite.

SpringsLicker (3114) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2004
This is a chewy, aromatic, absolutely black Stout. Excellent coffee, chocolate, roasty notes are blended nicely with hops. Recomended for the experienced Stout drinker/lover only.

Hoss (607) - Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Color was right and the flavor profile was there. Slight Choc. tone with a nice smoothness. Slight bitter finish was well done

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - DEC 16, 2003
Dark-dark(almost black) brownish stout paired with creamy, lacy, enjoyable, brown head. Aromas of coco with hints of coffee. Taste is sweet smoothness followed by a nice bitter roast rush. Heavy, thick character. A very decent stout. Peabody's in Boone, NC.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - DEC 11, 2003
Pours dark black with a two-tone head, light mocha on top and a deeper brown down below. Lots of sweet malts and milk chocolate in the nose. Quite sweet, plenty of roasts, nice bitterness at end. Good fullness, very creamy. Very quaffable.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 10, 2003
This stout pours with a jet black body topped by a thick brown head with a decent amount of lacing. The aroma is full of rasted malt with notes of chocolate and coffee, bitter notes and a touch of sweetness. The flavor is sweet, roasty and malty with a slight bitterness, a nice chocolate note and a hint of licorice. This brew is thick, full bodied and smooth with a touch of dryness.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Draft. Black with a huge, dark brown head, the darkest I ever recall seeing on a beer. Aroma erupted out of glass of bittersweet chocolates. Flavor was of smooth, sweet chocolate. One of the creamiest bodies I've ever had in a beer. Good, good stuff. Not complex, but wonderfully pure in flavor.
