A Sweet Stout with a Roasted Character and Rich, Smooth Finish

This brew is not for the faint of heart! No sissies, please. Devout beer lovers will love this dark, rich, full bodied stout. We like to say that our Steam Engine Stout is a classic, sweet stout it is, but this brew goes above and beyond your average stout. One of our patrons even calls it his Mistress so we would go as far to say that this brew is home-wrecking good. Pair it with the Soon-to-be-Famous Cheese Steak for a great meal in our Tap Room, or grab a growler or 6 pack and take it home, this brew is complimentary to heavy pasta dishes, lasagna, pizza, game dishes, or chocolate desserts. Of course, our stout is absolutely delightful on its own, if we do say so ourselves. If you enjoy our stout, you will also love our Hobos Breath Brown Ale.

Wow, this one was bad. Maybe, there was something wrong with it. No head. Looked like flat coke. No aroma and the taste was nasty. Suspect I got an old or bad bottle considering the other reviews were O.K. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Notes of dark fruit, burnt grains, smoke and a pretty rough tobacco aftertaste. Dark chocolate undertones. Burnt toast finish.

bottle to snifter. Large light brown head on top of a very dark brown to black beer. nose is light chocolate with some peanut butter notes. Taste is initially sweet with a light coco powder, but then finishes very bitter, astringent, and puckering, with some oversparged coffee grain flavors. something just doesnít finish right with this beer. weird.

Almost black. Tan lasting head. Bitter sweet chocolatey malt aroma and flavor. Some bitterness on the finish. A desert beer for sure.

12oz bottle. Enjoyed at robotoperaís lakehouse in Michigan. Pours a very dark brown color, not quite black. Thin brown head. Awesome aroma... Surprising amount of earthy bitter hop on this, coffee, dark chocolate, and heavy roast. Some light dark fruit. Loose ropes of lace. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. A lot less sweet than expected for a "sweet stout". Good bigger coffee in the finish. Medium body. Kind of slick texture. Lighter carbonation. Not so chewy. Solid, hoppier, more bittter stout. (sweet stout?? you sure?)

hotstuff (4353) - Indiana, USA - APR 28, 2014
Rated on 01-21-2012 (Bottle) The appearance is a small tan head with a short retention, opaque dark brown body, fizzy, fast rising carbonation, and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. The flavor is lightly bitter, roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate. The mouthfeel is soft carbonation and thin. This beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is quaffable and has a thin texture for the style. It also has a roasty lingering aftertaste.

Well, itís a stout. Itís roasty and malty, has some smoky flavor but not much. Maybe a bit burnt which gives it a little bitterness. Not overly sweet. Good stout, probably better than average IMO.

chinchill (2460) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 22, 2013
12 oz bottle, presumably 2013, with a twist cap served in a snifter. Poured a very dark mahogany; clear with a small tan head that soon vanished; nearly no lacing. The aroma is mainly of dark malts; slightly smokey with hints of dark fruits. Taste: Rich and lightly smoky, with a touch of bitter chocolate and expresso. Roasted grains struck me as a bit too earthy and burnt. The burnt quality is responsible, in part, for making this "sweet stout" more bitter than sweet. M: medium body with a low carbonation level. O: Unfortunately, does not taste as good as it smells. Disappointing.

23912535 on the short-neck bottle, so I assume it means it was made 239th day of 2012... poured into a S.A. Perfect Pint glass. This is my second beer from the company after Train Wreck Ale, which I thought was average-ish. Appearance: Black. If held up to light, ruby black. Two finger head goes away pretty quickly, but a tan ring remains on top of the beer. Lacing is weak. Above average looking beer. Smell: Right up there with "the big boys" -- a very pleasant roasted malt aroma... maybe with some dark chocolate and coffee smells as well. Taste/feel: I tend to think porters have a lighter mouthfeel, but maybe thatís in my head, since stouts and porters seem to be intertwined. The feel is thin and quite carbonated, but Iím fine with that, personally. The taste is a lot like the smell -- a lot of that roast, which is of a pretty surprising quality, if I could be so honest. As the beer warms up a bit, some more sweetness comes through. A surprisingly good stout from a "where the hell brewed this?" brewery. These are actually the sorts of stouts I enjoy drinking. They arenít too heavy, and they have a solid flavor. Nice roast flavor in this one, and easy to drink. A great entry stout, Iíd think -- enjoyable, for sure. Honestly? I like this more than Bellís Kalamazoo Stout. Sue me.

yzquierdo (3) - Grand Blanc, Michigan, USA - FEB 24, 2013 does not count
Poured black with a generous head! Lots of dark chocolate flavor followed up with a generous taste of coffee and a hint of vanilla! Too much carbonation to be called creamy. After glow is mostly dark bitter sweet chocolate. It is a pleasant stout but not the best I ever had.

Bottle to pint. Looks solid; black with thin beige lacing. Smells and tastes of dark malt. Average on the palate. Decent, but nothing special.
