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 crme brulee; or berry fruits, compotes and sauces.

DISCOVER THE WOOLLY ONE.

joeneugs (3262) - Livermore, California, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle from Beer Revolution. It pours very dark brown almost black with a brown head. The aroma is very dirty with cigarette ash and dark bitter chocolate. The flavor is big on dark chocolate bitterness with some light ash in an abrupt finish. The mouthfeel is a bit thin for a 7.8% stout. Tasty and satisfying but a bit one dimensional.

BMan1113VR (7863) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 25, 2011
On tap. Pours with a black body and a large tan head that leaves good lace. Aromas are of chocolate, toasty, roasty, bread, some vanilla, light smoke and a hint of anise. Very nice smelling. Flavors are earthy, nutty, roasty, licorice and milk chocolate. Light coffee. Medium bubbles with a full body.

MatSciGuy (907) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2011
[Bottle] pours black WI a large, fluffy tan head. Aroma is initially quite hoppy - of the cannabis variety, Lilly resinous and herbal. Some coffee and chocolate, but generally pretty fresh and airy. Flavor is a hoppy stout. Fairly thin, roasty, bittersweet chocolate, not much else.

DalzAle (1988) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle thanks to MatSciGuy. Dark brown pour light ring of carbonation and a weird aroma of BO and chocolate. Flavor is bitter grainy dark chocolate and slightly sour. Not sure whats going on in this beer, but I wasnt a big fan. Maybe just a bad bottle?

CLevar (376) - Minnesota, USA - NOV 18, 2011
Bottle thanks to Levi! Pour is a dark brown, with a large light mocha head that fades quickly to decent lacing. Aroma is light roast, light citrus hops, not much else. Taste is more roasty malt notes, some citrus and pine hops. Not bad, but not a ton here.

Im completely confused by this beer. Dark rich color but with no head. Smells nothing like a stout. Tastes nothing like a stout. Seems grassy but not in a hoppy way, more in a dirty playground way. Im at a loss for words. Perhaps its because Im drinking in Oakland. Either way, pass this up.

The database says 6% and my bottle says 7.8%. So somebody should fucking fix something about something because somethings not right. Nose is somewhat weird...earthy to the point of hinting at cow dung and tobacco..which surprisingly isnt all that insulting, I happen to enjoy the smell of both...too bad their just to faint here to enjoy fully. Pretty dark beer I reckon, but this a pretty dark table Im sitting at. Flavors are strongly dungy though and yeah, my woman had the right idea with the grassy qualities...she didnt mention that the grass has been a cut a week ago and left in a plastic bag for week to develop its flavor. Ill be honest though...this doesnt taste like its 7.8% alcohol..it tastes much closer to 6% and seriously would have been a hell of a lot better had there been some alcohol to nuetrelize the overly earthy (and I never find anything overly earthy...or so I thought) flavors. Certainly not a favorite from midnight sun.

Black with a fizzy tan head. Rich chocolate and drip coffee aroma and taste with a great dry bitter finish.

marcus (6537) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 29, 2011
On tap at City Beer. Pours black with a nice dark brown head and a chocolate and coffee aroma. There is a rich chocolate flavor with some coffee and a very dry finish. Tasty.

pours a dark black, with slightly oily caramel head floating. aroma was hard to pull, but coffee and chocolate was the main sense of smell. flavors in taste are caramel, coffee and light chocolate, creamy and rich with a lot of texture. wasnt as overpowering as I was expecting it to be but great start to a Saturday night of sampling.
