I cannot agree with the brewers that this beer is incredibly rich in flavor. I found it a little thin and lacking in all departments. But, for the style I suppose itís not too bad. Itís not supposed to be an imperial. Still, I have to admit I like big flavors, and this beer was modest in that regard. Some roast, with a little H2O coming through in the finish. Not bad, not worth the amount of cash I put down for it, considering my personal tastes.

A very good dry stout. Dark brown, nearly black, in color with a cream-colored head. Aroma is roast and dark chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, sweetness, coffee, chocolate, and some hops on the finish. Smooth, creamy palate.

(bottle) deep brown colour with a frothy beige head. aroma of heavy margerine and yeast, pure diacetyl, with some notes of roasted malts and oxidized meat. flavour is mostly roasted malts and caramel, very sweet, with only a hint of butter and some toffee. medium-bodied with average carbonation.

A darn tasty dry guy if every one made me too shy to cry. Bliggity black with the slightest crimson hints peaking through, an effervescent light tan head atop íer. Roast malt, smoke, rich dark chocolate, slight coffee, leather and some earthiness tantalize the beak. Taste is essentially the same, big bold flavour with a burnt sweet cocoa taste lingering. This is very dry finishing as expected although I do wish the body was a bit fuller and less carbonated. Overall very solid and excellently enjoyable.

pretty dark, almost black, with a thick light-tan head that goes from 1-2 fingers to just a hint pretty quickly. aroma is roasted, roasted, roasted. has just a hint of that vegetal quality i only seem to ever get in bottles, which isnít dominant at all, but prevents me from rating the aroma and flavoe even higher. what is that anyway-some sort of slight contamination? i seem to experience it more with breweries that have consistency issues with their bottles...Sac, Moylans, etc... Anyway, doesnít take too much away from this tasty brew, which is opening up quite nicely. Dry roasted grain, nut, chocolate, coffee flavor. On the thin side, as the style dictates, but actaully has a nice amount of body to it. Carbonation is a bithigh, so a little swirling does lessen that a bit and smooth things out. Overall, a good beer thatís just a touch rough around the edges."

@molen tasting. Unexpectedly thick stout, very oily and sticky beer. Taste of strongly roasted malt, coffee and some mild hops. Tasty beer.
