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.

Hairofthedog (419) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 10, 2005
Roasty and a slight chocolate note on the nose w/ a hint of coffee. The pour was nice and opaque, thick w/ brown hues. There was no head and only slight lacing. The flavor was roasty and good coffee w/ hints of chocolate on the back of the tongue. The mouthfeel was thin and slightly watery w/ smooth, well- rounded body.

Black pour with a light brown head, roasted malt aroma primarily. Nice up front taste with a light hop presence, creamy and medium bodied, roast malts take a few sips to show up in the aftertaste but afterwards it is actually a little smoky.

SlovakSniper (3244) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2014
Honnête présentation. Arômes de caramel et de chocolat qui me semblent être contenus par des malts rôtis et/ou des houblons. Saveurs de grains rôtis qui ne semblent pas être soutenus par des houblons. Je dirais même plus que cette bière manque un peu de raffinement dans ses saveurs. Corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement modéré et une texture crémeuse. Finale sur des notes plutôt sèches et surettes de malts rôtis. Ordinaire.

DerWeg (1506) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2014
Average appearance is blackish brown with med dark brown creamy head. Smells of dark fruit and hint liquorice. Taste replays smell with predominant sweetness that is balanced by some lemony hops. Medium body and restrained roast/coffee character. It’s fine I s’pose, though one-notish - a bit British style in its simplicity as a stout.

Pours black, with a smallish but thick mocha head. Aromas of roasted malts and dark chocolate nibs fill the nose. Definitely some coffee breaking through too. Palate is thick and creamy. Tastes are dark chocolate, coffee, malts. Overall this is a very solid stout, right up there with the best I’ve had. Very drinkable and I would gladly consume more of this.

"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 (1672) - 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.
