COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

hogan873 (449) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2009
Nearly pitch black body with a very thin tan head. Light aroma with notes of coffee, licorice, and dark fruits. The palate is quite thin for a stout, but the brew is very smooth. Weak coffee flavor with some dark fruit accents. Finishes just slightly bitter. Not a bad beer, but somewhat weak for a stout.

Very dark copper, thick light beige head. Roasted, wet malt aroma. Light, dry mouthfeel. Roasted aroma, faint, fruity and smokey notes. Dry and light bitter finish.

Bamsen78 (3655) - 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 (13912) - 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 (5421) - 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 (5867) - 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.
