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.

Mixed six from Total Wine. Dark chocolate pour with a brown head. Aromas of chocolate and coffee. Sweet and bitter taste with a long finish that gives a nice coffee flavor. Very, very nice. Really enjoyed this.

AWISLguy (1224) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Bottle from Downer Wine & Spirits. Pours an opaque black with a brown bubbly head that dissipates very quickly to no head with almost no lacing. Aroma has chocolate and coffee; rich and strong. Taste is of bakers chocolate, bitter coffee and sweet caramel with some molasses. Very roasty and full-bodied. Finishes a bit more sweet than bitter. This was very nice; thick and tasty.

Cantabrian (803) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 7, 2013
A five star stout! Dark brown, pouring like thick coffee into a black night with a brown, greasy head, surprisingly this has nothing of the oily, leathery scents of some other US stouts, maculated by heavy hopping. The nose here is pure chocolate and coconut, very much like the lovely Three Boys Coconut Stout. Then, after such sweet seduction, the smooth flavour of chocolates and roasted malts is no surprise. Not much of a bitterness, neither from hops nor from charred malts. Delicious notes of vanilla to enhance the chocolate. A velvety feel, creamy on the mouth, this could be more of a sweet stout. Total redemption for US stouts, which do not need to be heavily hopped at all. This is perfection.

Pours an opaque brownish black from the bottle with thin tan ring of lacy head that doesn’t really stick. Aroma of roasted makes and a hint of sweet chocolate and sugar. Taste follows, a hint more of the sweetness but a nice bitter coffee finish. Pretty solid.

Candied sugar and roasted malts on the aroma. Blackish brown with no foam. Roasted cocoa, toffee and espresso. Overall, basic stout flavors with masked alcohol.
