Black Hawk Stout retains the big traditional flavors of an Irish-style stout and yet offers a refreshing dry crispness that is rare in many dark beers. "Bottle Conditioned" Black Hawk Stout is replete with a rich, roasted malt flavor that makes this not-so-heavy stout, creamy and ever so smooth. It has a subtlety that surprises and converts even the most reticent stout drinker.

Very dark, almost black. High coffee flavor in the finish. Holds its head fairly well. The aroma was a nice blend of roasted malt and a slight coffee scent, but that's where the pleasentness stopped.

TorbenJensen (1396) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2015
Rich foam and a lovely aroma of coffee and chocolate. The taste varies over the classical dark chocolate, coffee, lightly roasted malt and a small touch of licorice. The finish is moderately hoppy with dry end. A good stout who do nothing bigger impression, but still keeps the type of accuracy. Well recommended.

larsga (6929) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 13, 2015
Medium gray-brown head. Opaque black body shows hazy dark red light at edges. Roasty floral aroma is faint, with traces of rubber boot (no, seriously). Dry earthy roasty soy sauce taste with toasted sugar notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish earthy mealy soy sauce aftertaste with rubbery notes. Well. It’s ok. (0.355l bottle, from Fish & Beer, Copenhagen.)

Bamsen78 (4606) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle. Pour cloudy nearly black with small but stable light tan head. Dark aroma of coffee, malt and caramel with some subtle roasty notes. Bitter, roasty flavour, complemented by sweetish notes of caramel malt and touches of coffee. Roasty and bitter aftertaste with notes of yeast. Decent, albeit just medium-bodied.

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2015
Bottle. Bready and dusty aroma, smells a lot like a milk stout. Almost black colour, seems clear. Big stable creamy light brown head. The flavour is bready, slightly vinous, sweetish. Not a dry stout in my book, but perhaps not sweet enough to be a milk stout, either.

Sigmund (5991) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
Shared bottle at local tasting. Black colour, moderate to low tan head. Slightly sweetish and mildly roasty aroma, hints of creamy coffee and chocolate. Dry roasty flavour, notes of cold coffee. Drinkable, but not remarkable.

gunnar (6920) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours almost black with a small creamy beige head. Aroma of dark fruits, weak roast. Taste is light sweet, malts and coffee with a strange sidekick not making this a very good one. Dry bitter finish.

Holmen1 (3929) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
Flaske på rbhd-samling feb-15: brunsvart med capuccinoskum. Mild kaffe/vanlijearoma og kremet munnfølelse. Tørr og mørk men med en bismak av våt papp.
