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.

chickenflea (328) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2010
UPDATED: APR 11, 2010 12oz bottle. Aroma with typical chocolate and coffee aroma up front, but side notes of graham cracker, alcohol and maraschino cherry. Pours black with a dark tan head. This beer DOES look scary. Head dissipates rapidly and leaves little lacing. The flavor is sweet with lots of milky chocolate, burn whole grain toast, caramel, and a very ashy bitter finish. Very slight hop profile. Just enough to keep my interest at a very high level. Hops are no match for the heavy malts though. Medium-full body with an almost chewy texture and slight chalkiness. It is smooth and creamy almost like a milk stout. A beautiful beer. Reminds me why I love beer. Well done.

A nice creamy offering in a 6er from the Steelhead dpt of Mad River. Hints of roast, milk chocolate, bitter hops, and everything a single 6er stout should be.

solidfunk (3673) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Quite a proper bite of beer. Nice and bitter, lots of roast - certainly towards the foreign stout category. Pours black with mocha head and lacing. Finishes pretty bitter. Dark chocolate, thick consistency with slick texture. Bottle.

Headbanger (3246) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2014
12oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a dark brown almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. Taste of the same. This full bodied brew is well balanced and goes down smooth.

rondphoto (1824) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - MAR 18, 2014
@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque dark brown with 1" brown head, bands of lace. Taste is roasted malt with coffee and chocolate entering in the palate, a light tart berry and bittering in the finish. There is a lot going on here, but the combination is not an enjoyable thing for me. Decent, not great.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Very dark brown with a light brown head. Aroma of burnt malt, coffee. Dry roasty palate, a little dusty and ashy, coffee. Solid stout.

Sweet chocolate/coffee aroma, jet black with a very thin creamy head, rich bitter chocolate and caramel flavours. I could drink a lot of this stuff!

This is a fine example of a smooth, tasty stout. Roasted malty creaminess with a little hops boost on the back end. Watch how it all went down: http://teamchug.com/?p=139
