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.

Bottle into British honeycomb tankard. Dark thin tan head. Strong aroma of roasted chocolate. Similar taste w hints of coffee and dry toffee. Mild hops which I also like. Not too heavy or thick like an imperial. Great easy drinking stout for a cold night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle, 13C. Black with a modest tan head. Roasty mocha aroma. A little fizzy, but pretty smooth. Not all that sweet. Coffee, some chocolate, molasses, roast. Nothing very exciting, no particular character... but lovely balance and weight and tasty enough.

Acquired from hayduke. Thanks Ron! It poured a black color with a dark brown head. The aroma was of coffee that was roasty to the point of smelling smokey. The taste was of smoke with a hint of medium-roast coffee, then fading through a variety of chocolate malts. Very well done!

On tap. Black with a nice creamy light brown head. Fairly straight forward and pleasant chocolate biscuit aroma and taste with some light coffee and roasted cereal grain notes and a good velvety palate.

The beer has a pleasant malt smell with hints of chocolate and coffee. It is black in color with a dark brown medium bodies head. The overall taste is great but there’s a bit too much carbonation that hits the palate.

Big opaque stout pour with a nice mocha head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is an enticing blend of chocolate and coffee roast. The taste carries through with that excellent mix which is well balanced and quite smooth on the palate. This is excellent stuff!

12oz bottle- pours super dark brown with brown head. Nose is straight up roast. Flavor adds coffee grounds. Stout and not joking. This is a serious beer.
