COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A black opaque ale with rich creamy roasted malt character and a very mild hop complement. This beer may look a little scary but take a sip and you’ll see why this Extra Stout can convert even lite beer drinkers to Stout lovers. A unique flavor profile that starts with a slight coffee flavor and finishes with a hint of roasty chocolate. Try a pint with a scoop of French Vanilla ice cream. This beer is a favorite as a compliment to any dessert or as a hearty breakfast drink.

Sweet chocolate/coffee aroma, jet black with a very thin creamy head, rich bitter chocolate and caramel flavours. I could drink a lot of this stuff!

This is a fine example of a smooth, tasty stout. Roasted malty creaminess with a little hops boost on the back end. Watch how it all went down: http://teamchug.com/?p=139

bottle. aroma is largely metallic? taste is roasted malt, coffee, giving way to light chocolate - nice. not as creamy as I’d like from a stout. ok but not spectacular, would like to try on draught someday.

harrymel (1499) - Spokane, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Bottled: unk, appears a time back provided the amount of yeast at the bottom... A: black with a finger of light mocha which falls to a sheet of the same. Cobweb lace. S: coffee, cocoa, astringency. Standard stout with a hint of chemical tones. T: Nice and roasty with chocolately malts and some dirty coffee grounds that motion in at mid palate to take over and last and last as the finish line is long here. M: Medium on thin with moderate carb. Semi dry finish. O: Nose was off, and could appreciate some more body in the beer, but the flavor was quite nice.

radarsock (897) - Vermont, USA - NOV 18, 2013
$2.25 for the 12oz. bottle purchased from Grand Trunk earlier today. Purplish dark brown pour with a fluffy off-beige head half a finger in length. Smells and tastes of sorghum molasses, tobacco, lactose, and milk chocolate. Yeast, granny smith apples, and roast by swallow. Lighter and waterier than expected.
