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.

Poured from the bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a black color with only the slightest dark brown hue and a very small, dark-tan, creamy head with short retention, and light lacing and cling. The aroma was a coffee-chocolate malty mix with a roasted malt effect, along with some oats and barley, and a bit of earthy hops. The taste was a sweet-bitter blend with a coffee and caramel malt flavor mixed with a bit of bitter and sour earthy and grainy hops. It was a slightly creamy and wet beer with low carbonation and fizz, and had a lighter mouthfeel, which was a touch watery.

Bottle. Pours a very thick near-black with a thin tan head. There are definitely some strong roasted flavors, but there’s also just a hint of some hoppy bitterness underneath. Roasting and chocolate notes in the taste. Thick and heavy on the palate, yet very smooth. Good one.

Pours black with creamy brown head. Aroma is a rich and smoky chocolate with some dark fruits as well. Taste is very smooth with a nice rounded figgy taste, and the dark and smoky malts shine through as well. Very good deep and complex stout.
