COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark and full-bodied, Mammoth Extra Stout provides a cozy blanket of warm and fuzzy flavors, including chocolate, caramel, coffee and nut. Huge portions of pale and specialty malts give this mammoth brew a complex palate while hops provide well-rounded balance.

Any time of year, pair the robust flavors of Mammoth Extra Stout with slow-roasted, caramelized meats and vegetables. Or contrast the deep dark roast flavors of this wonderful brew with silky soups; creamy pasta dishes, cheesecake or crème brulee; or berry fruits, compotes and sauces.

DISCOVER THE WOOLLY ONE.

Chocolate caramel and toffee flavors. Aroma is a little roasty. Finish is slightly sweet to add some depth. Nice tan head to add some creaminess to the texture. A solid drink and a very accessible stout.

One finger head, the color of light brown sugar. Sticks around after the pouring. Ultra dark brown opaque body. Some bubbles coating side of glass. VERY slight toasty aroma. Good body that could be a little heavier to be a foreign stout IMHO, but not bilge water thin either. Light roasty flavor. Very drinkable.

22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, toasted bread, espresso, and bitter chocolate. Flavour of bitter espresso, burnt / roasted malt, toasted bread and some caramel - quite dry, bitter and burnt. The flavour profile dissipates toward the end, leaving a rather empty palate, that is quite dry and burnt.

Bottle. Blackish beerwith a light brown head. Malt and light roast aroma with light coffee. Malt and toffee flavor with coffee and light roast. Medium-plus bodied. Toffee and earth lingers with light roast, light coffee, and light chocolate.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bomber. The dark mahogany body shows glints of chestnut brown translucency at the edges. A thick and frothy head of dark mocha to light brown foam slowly recedes to a short but lasting blanket, bubbly at the center and smooth at the edges. Dense, craggy, cobweb-like swaths of lacing coat nearly the entire glass. The nose is heavily caramelized, showing loads of burnt sugars, followed by notes of dark, bittersweet cacao, earthen dark fruit, fading green hops, and a strong suggestion of minerals. I’m getting alot of nickel and wet stone, along with some hefty roast. The yeast contingent is oddly fruity, and just a bit "off". Flavors also miss the mark. While the burnt caramel and dark chocolate are nice enough, and the roasted barley component is solid, there are some oddly savory fruit elements, along with an abrasive, mineral-heavy, metallic element that lingers on the finish. There’s a touch of stale coffee in there as well. The palate is medium-plus in body weight, with moderately lively carbonation up front that shifts towards a dry, kind are cardboard-like finish. Eh....there are some bright spots, but the total package falls well short of my standards for Midnight Sun. I guess even the best breweries have off days.

Pours a fairly solid black color with a smallish creamy tan head that shows moderate retention and lace. Smells of caramel, licorice, and roasted grains up front, Smooth vanilla and chocolaty aroma countered by a firm earthy hop punch. Taste is creamy chocolate and vanilla mixed with a bit of sweet milk sugar along with roasted grains and earthy hops. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, medium to thick body with a moderate level of carbonation. Very nice easy drinking smooth flavorful stout. Damn they can brew up there in AK.
