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.

Had a couple this new years day. Pours dark and frothy with a tan head that dissipates quickly. Aromatics of the usual coffee, chocolate and roasted barley with a hint of vanilla. Mothfeel is full with a very mild silkiness. Defin itely one of the better stouts out there IMO. Lost Coast did well on this one.

varanid99 (641) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2015
Black pour with a nice tight tan head. Roasty, coffee, chocolate aromas. Taste is similar, light roastiness, coffee, cocoa, bitterness is a good mix of roastiness and hop bitterness. Nice, easy drinking

yourilevesque (223) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 11, 2015
Bière foncée aux reflets rubis affichant un certain collet blanchâtre. La bière est un stout de soif: arômes de café léger, malts grillés mais le tout est subtile et sans caractère. Je sens un peu de bois mais sans plus. C’est léger et mal défini. Texture aqueuse, saveurs qui sont la continuité du nez. Cette bière n’est pas une bière de dégustation; elle se boit aisément mais ne présente rien qui vaille la peine de s’arrêter à elle.

Dervock (553) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - MAY 10, 2015
Bottle - pours black with a tan head. Malt and choc aroma. Bittersweet upfront with a short lived dry finish. Creamy palate.

budedou (510) - Saint Etienne, FRANCE - MAY 7, 2015
Roasted coffee and dark chocolate with a nice touch of sweetness. Some hops underpin the classic stout elements and the moderate effervescence and richness make it a nice drinkable beer

TXBadger (1790) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2015
Pours a dark brown almost black color with tan head. Roasted malt and cocoa on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with strong over roasted notes.

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

ceason (30) - 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 (177) - 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 (1657) - 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
