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.

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

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.

Nutty chocolate perfect for the Christmas season, indigestion aftertaste like when eating too many nuts at the ball game. Oily texture and little carbonation.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2004
Chocolate, nutty aroma with some underlying roasted malts. Opaque, dark brown with chocolate brown head that recedes to cover. Very sweet chocolatey flavour has a mild roasty character. that lasts especially in the aftertaste. Somewhat light and chalky in the mouth. Bottle sampled with Enkerli and others.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2004
Black appearance. Oily consistency. Negligible head and minimal carbonation. Chocolate and licorice in the aroma. Same flavour, with some coffee and roast malt. Quite rich, but not the most full bodied stout. Rather nice though. Bottled at the Green Leafe Cafe, Williamsburg.

opaque black, foamy tan head. roast, coffee, brown sugar, smoke and malt aroma with some cocoa. starts a little sweet and chocolatey, moves tart and raisiny, finishes roasty, but doesn’t really live up to the aroma. still quite nice.

Well the experience was certainly a factor for this one. Being from an area where the idea of variety in the Liquor Store is how many Eastern European beers are able to be stacked up, I was very excited to be making the journey to Premier Gourmet to indulge a little. And to make it all even better they were sampling this as you walk in. Nice nearly black stout with the requisite tan head. Aromas pretty standard - some roasty and some chocolate sweet malts. Flavours the same with just a little bitterness to finish. Not a great smooth bittersweet chocolate though, just a little edge as it left. Not bad, but made better by the moment.

Pours pretty much pitch black in color. Aroma is sweet and creamy with a roasted scent. Flavor is roasty and has a bit of hop flavor. Not quite as rich as it could be be but still good.

nice black pour, and a great palate...a roasted chocolate aroma...flavor was a bit of a let down (a decent smoky chocolate flavor, with a not so decent bitter aftertaste)...not a bad beer by any means, but somewhat dissapointing
