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.

Cybercat (3512) - Georgia, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Aroma is strong and nose-filling, rich, oily and smoky with a firm overtone of molasses, what I expect from a quality stout. It pours a deep, opaque sable, a whisker above black, with a fairly thick and fine-bubbled light tan head. Perky flavor is smoky and malty with tones of quality roast coffee and molasses, slightly sweet and smoky. Texture is smooth yet fairly fizzy, leaving a subtle tingle.

Nice and dark, good supplement to a burger. Phases were fairly simple, could have been thicker on the palate.

ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2014
355ml bottle. Pours an opaque black, with a moderate beige head, which lasts fairly well and leaves decent lacing. Roasty malt, black coffee and nutty, savoury notes create the aroma. Mild herbal hops up front give way to bittersweet cocoa and nutty notes in the mid-palate, with black coffee in the finish. A decent, enjoyable stout.

Very good. It’s a dark heavy beer rich in creamy chocolate and malt flavors.

wvhoran (372) - Tasmania, - NOV 16, 2014
Bottle. Pours clear black with a small light brown head. The aroma has strong notes of good dark chocolate, as well as coffee and roasted malt. The flavour has roasted malt, some hops, coffee and chocolate. The palate is fairly light and dry.

slowrunner77 (6090) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"mild hops, heavily roasted aroma and flavor. this is an above average stout, but i do wish the mouthfeel was a little heavier. great mingling of the malt and light hops, though."

Jado (575) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2014
From 12 oz bottle. Pours a completely opaque black with not even a hint of a highlight. Dark brown head which collapses to a cap. Aromas of stewed plums, raisins, cocoa powder and coffee. Taste is dark fruit initially building to a roasty black coffee bitterness. That gives way to dark chocolate towards the end. Long, lingering slightly smoky finish with a currant and raisin aftertaste. Awesome stuff.

nuplastikk (4708) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 2, 2014
12oz bottle. Deep brown-black body. Beige head fades into an oily residue pretty quickly. Nice rich roasty chocolate aroma. A pretty nice, classic American Stout. Though it has rich specialty malt tones, it also has nice hop balance. Well executed, solid offering,

fletchfighters (1136) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2014
355 ml bottle Black with a dark brown head. Good viscosity for the ABV level. Roast, chocolate, and coffee in nose and taste with a toasty bittersweet finish. Darned good beefed up stout.

Sevenlee (1411) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2014
Pours dark with a beige head. Aroma is malt, roasty with some coffee and chocolate. Taste is medium sweet leading to a roasty finish. Not bad.

joeneugs (3496) - Livermore, California, USA - AUG 29, 2014
12 oz. bottle. It pours a jet black color with a small brown head. Very oily coming out of the bottle. The aroma has a lot of dark chocolate and black licorice. Toasty base with a touch of hot asphalt and tobacco. The flavor is full bodied and roasted with more black licorice, asphalt and some caramel in the middle. There’s some noticeable bitterness in the finish. A bit harsh on the palate, but the black malt is thankfully not too obtrusive. Overall, a nice medium level stout.
