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.

rollinsr (552) - Atlanta, - OCT 18, 2012
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.

Werckmeister (1902) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUL 24, 2016
0,355l bottle at home. No BB date. black color, small dark coffee-colored head. smells nicely of bitter chocolate, earthy, coffee, roast, lightly leathery, nicely creamy, also some milk chocolate, very nice smell. medium to full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of coffee, a bit ashy, earthy, hints of bitter chocolate, a bit scratchy bitterness. finishes lightly roasty bitter and earthy with notes of coffee and leather. overall very nice beer, taste is lacking a bit compared to the very nice smell, might be also related to freshness since its unclear how old the bottle is.

MelvinKalksma (801) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2016

Aroma:
Slight/medium aroma of malts, caramel, chocolate, mocha, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with slight yeast and with a slight/medium dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, chocolate and mocha; ends slightly dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. The sweet chocolate and mocha flavour is slightly dominating the dry and roasted finish, but it does not matter that much; it could still have been more roasted and bitter however.
