Pours as black as Rasputinís heart. Has some very nice subtle chocolate notes as well as a lovely roasted character. Just an incredible stout that everyone should have the pleasure of drinking.

Bottle pour, strong smells of smoke, coffee, rye. Taste is heavy, lots of alcohol, and actually substantial fruits.

Pours pitch black. A roasty, yet somewhat sweet aroma. Excellent flavor and body: coffee, dark chocolate, a slight alcohol warmth, and a little walnut. Rich. Awesome stout, a must-try for fans of the style

This oneís for stout lovers ONLY - if you donít dig dark beer, then high-tail it from this beast.
Pours black as pitch, brownish head that is quite minimal. Aroma is quite hoppy smelling for a stout. Taste is powerful, heavy-duty: bitter, slightly peppery, brutal malt presence, with a bit of a hop bite. Warming alcoholic finish that is exceedingly pleasant. For stout-lovers who are looking for something extra heavy without being like medicinal syrup, this is the ticket.

It has a strong coffee with a mix of chocolate aroma. The color is black with almost no light coming through. The head is a medium brown that is full and thick. It has a very rich mixture of coffee with some chocolate. It is a little bitter in the after taste with a warming bite.

4.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This beer is the perfection of the brewerís art. It pours an opaque black with a thick foamy tan head. Nose is caramel and coffee. Very creamy with a thick viscosity. Taste bursts with flavors of caramel, dark, almost burnt, malt, molasses, and coffee. Finishes slightly dry and crisp. A really excellent beer, heartily recommended. A banquet unto itself or may be paired nicely with smoked cheese and crackers.
