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.

Black body with a small head. Nice aroma of raisins, cherries and vanilla. Has hints of oxidation. Very open, chocolate malt flavor. Little hop character. This sample likely spent considerable time on the shelf, but aged suprisingly well. Thanks Craig!

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 15, 2005
a very roasted stout. Somewhat like a small imperial. Huge jet black malt body. Almost burnt cocoa and espresso flavors, with some extreme bittersweet chocolate. Overripe berries and toffee come in at the back. Almost bordering on malt astringent, extremely attenuated. Very lingering chalky roasted finish.

Sammy (10882) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2005
looks like a stout, but it starts with a sourness in the aroma. There is roastness, even a tad burnt, some chocolate, but oh the sourness. Stiff upper lip to finish this one. It was a bit better at room temperature, and I am a lenient rater on stouts, it even refreshed, but the..sourness.

badgerben (4822) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 3, 2005
Black color with a thin head. Bitter coffee aroma. Oddly enough, the taste fits the name: it tastes a little like steel. Not much malt or anything else.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Poured black with a awesome chocolate head and lacing. Aroma of chocolate and roast. Roasty, nutty flavor with a liquid smoke palate. Not bad..not great , but not bad.

Thick opaque black pour with a dark tan head. Smells like coffee and roast. Thick mouthfeel. Very very roasted. Bitter coffee, roasty finish.

ragesaq (71) - Arizona, USA - JAN 7, 2005
Appearance: black as night, light lacing, moderate dark tan head Aroma: Coffee and chocolate, surprisingly strong for a plain looking stout Flavor/Palate: Big malt, big coffee, big chocolate, with a tiny cherry vanilla hinting in the aftertaste. Very creamy slightly oily texture. Overall: A very very fine stout in an unassuming looking bottle sold in 6packs for low prices. Consider me impressed. Highly reccomended

DocLock (9686) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 6, 2005
Deep obsidian pour with a big, dark tan head. Aroma of malt, big chocoff, jalapeno oil, molasses, and a green olive/pimento smell that I have never experienced before. Tastes malty, with more chocoff, molasses, and more green olive taste...unique. Firm, dense palate, and a slightly dry, cherry, vanilla, oak finish. A standout. Procure this now.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2005
Dark brown in colour. Aroma was nutty, some chocolate, small roast. Flavour of roasted chocolate, somewhat sweet, nutty. Medium body and carbonation. Finishes roasty and chalky. Fairly good but standard stout.

aobecksy (700) - Middle of no where, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2005
Nutty chocolate perfect for the Christmas season, indigestion aftertaste like when eating too many nuts at the ball game. Oily texture and little carbonation.
