Bottle, home. The mouthfeel works against this otherwise great beer. Itís just a tad too thin to support the roasty, coffee bean fruitiness of the malt. I think more chocolate flavor would come out if the beer had a creamier feel. Thereís cocoa, roast, raisin-sweet malt and a touch of hops, though less than expected. The beer is somewhat acidic and of moderate sweetness. Itís an excellent value, better than many similar stouts. Thanks for starting distribution here, Ninkasi.

~Rich roasted milky chocolate aroma with coffee and cream. ~Pours black opaque with some red hues and a small thick creamy brown head. ~Flavor of dark chocolate with cream, roasted grains, slight nuttiness with earthy tones. Burnt grain and astringency effects the taste. ~Medium - full body, low- med CO2, very dry with astringency and burnt grain. ~This is the first time that i think I ever gave a 1 for palate. It really effected the brew. The aroma is very nice. I wish this brew was more wet feeling and creamier. The grains may have been roasted too long or the sparge temp was off. Still drinkable and enjoyable, but has potential to become excellent.

Damn tasty sweet stout. Very good and all levels. One of the best stouts I have had. Delicious toastyness. This could be a regular for me.

Bomber into English pint glass. Nice, nice aroma of fresh roasted coffee. Awesome looking brew. Pours nearly opaque black with a thick head, which dissipates shortly, leaving a thin head and beautiful lacework. Flavor and palate donít live up to the hype given in the nose and appearance. Flavor is pretty standard for this style. Itís not blowing me away like I was expecting. Itís a little on the thin side. Alcohol is very noticeable. Starts sweet, finishes with a bitterness that lingers for a long time on the back of the tongue. Overall, itís a nice stout, but it just doesnít have that "wow factor" that many beers in this category seem to have.

Bottle shared by a friend at my Super Awesome Ridiculous Stout Tasting on 1/23/10. Black pour with a thin beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, cream and some coffee. Roasty coffee flavor up front with some sweet cream and a bitter finish. Pretty darn good.

Sampled at the Hopsnobbery Collective Stout tasting on 01/23/10. This brew is black with a medium tan head that diminishes steadily. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Roasted malt and coffee in the nose. Medium to full smooth body with a nice roasty character and flavors of charred malt, coffee and bittersweet chocolate. Mild hops in the background as well. The finish is sweet cocoa. Pretty good overall.
