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.

jeremyh70 (841) - Missouri, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Almost opaque black with brown highlights and a huge rocky head that hangs around forever and leaves behind good lacing. Aroma is straight forward dark chocolate and black coffee. Nice medium roast coffee flavors and dark chocolate in taste with mild roasty bitter. Almost equal amounts of sweet and bitter in finish, with bitter slightly winning. Medium bodied with semi creamy mouthfeel and short, almost dry finish and medium-high carbonation. A very good standard stout that hits all the marks without being too complex. ---Jeremy H

Heavy black consistency. Initial chocolate taste with harsh after taste. Notes of malted barley.

ceason (20) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2015
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a spare diminishing light-brown head. The mild aroma was a letdown, it was milk chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt and something akin to an artificial sweetener which I did not care for. Flavour follows the aroma but with a little bit of hops added.

Jabah (145) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
This is a very good stout, but it is on the lighter side if you are expecting a strong thick stout. 8-ball has hints of chocolate and coffee, with a slight malt finish.....medium ABV%. This is a good daytime/early evening beer if you want something dark that isn’t 8-12%.

AWISLguy (1616) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 7, 2015
Bottle from Woodmans in the Falls. Amazed I never rated before, although we went through all the Lost Coast stuff years back. Dark brown pour, little head. Aromna has light roast, molasses and sweet caramel. Somewhat carbonated, a bit sweet. The oatmeal smoothes it out. Solid, not great. 13.8

Thanks Tony. Black and relatively thin beer. Roasty malt aroma but pretty tame. Smooth and easy drinking, slight bitter chocolate

Bottle. Rich grainy pumpernickel aroma with faint milk chocolate and vanilla. Opaque black with clear ruby highlights under a lasting ruddy tan sheet. Sweet grainy flavour with pumpernickel and chocolate and moderate red fruit. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth.

Strangebrewer (950) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2015
bomber. Poured very dark brown with a tan head. Heavily roasted malt aroma, coffee and vanilla notes. Medium-full bodied, crisp carbonation with a slight oily mouthfeel. Flavour of roasted malts, almost smokey with hints of coffee, bitter dark chocolate, sourish finish.

Very nice; very solid. Nothing to write home about -- until you see the ABV. How did they do the flavor at 5.8%?

Full-bodied. First sip brings strong aroma. From second sip, it spreads over throat softly. Good for dining out for a date ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HippyHop (378) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 17, 2015
Pour is neon green with an egg yolk cap. Nose is mostly coffee and chocolate with a bit of roasted grain. This is surprisingly dry for something that’s in the sweet stout category. Carbonation is nice, and the texture is creamy, but it’s a touch watery too. Serviceable stout.
