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.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 23, 2004
This stout pours with a black body topped by a thick, brown head with some lacing. The aroma is bitter, roasty and malty with a slight licorice note, a slight sweetness and some coffee. The flavor is also bitter, roasty and malty with a cigarette smokiness, a strong coffee note and a touch of sweetness. Full bodied, relatively smooth and slightly dry.

Deep black pour with a thin tan head. Sweet aroma. Some caramel, roasted malt and coffee. A hint of chocolate too. Nice taste! Sweet. Sweet chocolate flavor. Hint of mint? Maybe. Malty as well. Nice on the palate. Pretty impressed with this. Bought this 12 oz bottle at Total Wine in Manassas, VA.

Pours a rich darkness with a thin brown head. Aroma is sweet, rich and roasty. Body starts caramely sweet and chocolatey with nice balance and complexity. Very smooth and flavorful, a very nice stout.

JPDIPSO (5107) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 23, 2004
Opaque silky black color with a small lid of dark coffee bubbles. Rick chocolate, coffee and touch of plastic in the aroma. Fairly light feel, and almost silky. Some light fruit (raspberries) and dark chocolate. Late acid runs amok. Missing some of the roasted malt goodness. Some lactose qualities. Seems like a cross between a sweet and milk stout.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Black with a thick, puffy cocoa-colored head. Nose is of coffee, a bit roasty, slightly burnt. Somewhat oily. Burnt wood character predominates the roasts, bit of coffee bitterness.

TheBeerGod (5572) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Pours a rich black with a medium tan, puffy, head. Aroma is soaked in roasted malt, some cocoa, light coffee, and a hint of wood. The taste seems reminescent of Old Rasputin to me. Chocolate, coffee, roasted or burnt malts, and perhaps smoldering wood. The body is a little thin but this is very drinkable. Good stout!

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 14, 2003
Pours a dark black with brown edges. What little head there was left quickly. Very small aromas in this one. Some chocolate malts, some roast. Not a lot more. Flavors stand out a bit more. Chocolate comes out strongly, some more of the roasted malts. Licorice almost in this one, somewhat of a root beer flavor as well. Medium body, not too bold. Nice stout.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 18, 2003
Pours a dark brown/molasses color with almost no head that dissapates quickly. Aroma is almost nonexistant. flavor is chocolately roasted and bitter with a sour aftertaste.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 6, 2003
Bottle, pours black, opaque with a small dark brown head and slight lacing. Aroma is dark chocolate covered cherries, prunes, burnt malts, spruce hops. Heavy malt flavors, dark dried fruits, smokiness, espresso and a bitter hop finish - a little unbalanced compared to other stouts. Thick bodied, minimal carbonation. Pretty good stout overall.
