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.

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2004 Deep and dark, medium brown head that lasted. Solid roasted malt prescence, a little smoky, slightly sweet, with some hops in the background. Medium to full bodied, slightly dry. A solid stout. Re-rate: Less roast than previously. More of an off sourness that did not carry across well. Rating is an average of both ratings.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2004
Black body, small dark tan head, mild espresso nose. Nice mouthfeel, but a little weak in flavor, with sweet coffee, minimal bitterness and a sweet finish. A hint of chocolate lingers.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - SEP 16, 2004
A decent stout, but nothing that really stands out in my mind. Good roastiness and coffee flavors with a big bitterness in the finish. Moderate thickness and good smooth creaminess.

Opaque black just like your usual stout. Taste is smooth and easy to drink with roasted coffee. A very good drinkable stout. Sometimes stouts like this are a nice break from all of the incredibly robust stouts like expedition and world wide.
