Midnight black color and rich dark-roasted aroma. Specially blended hops combine with flaked unmalted barley to give this brew a full body and a dense creamy head. All elements combine in a solid, lingering finish.

Sampled at GABF 2014. Pours a deep dark brown body with thin tan lacing. Aroma is soft sweet chocolate, sweet nuts and rich roast. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of roast up front, followed by chocolate, coffee, light malt and nut. Nice balance.

IndianaRed (2597) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 27, 2014
On Tap at The River Room, Whole Foods Boise. Black with a very impressive dark tan head hat settled nicely into a thick sustaining ring. Served a bit cold, but plenty of classic dark roast campfire aromas. Flavors are similar with significant bitterness. For a foreign, I expected a bit less IBU and a bit more sweetness

Well, it looks like a stout: as black as sin with only a suggestion of mahogany in the dimple of the glass and a crema of latter coloured head. It smells of stout: chocolate, dusty cocoa, licorice and some floral violet. It tastes of stout: a little charry with flaky grain and surprisingly juicy flavours. It is medium-bodied with a sherbety mouthfeel and a faintly astringent finish. So, my immediate thought is that this beer is a stout. Well, duh. However, it is an archetypal stout. Bang on in all the categories it should be however thereís just something about it that fails to capture my imagination. I should be grateful to find it here on these foreign shores at all, but I was looking forward to something altogether chewier and fulsome. Donít get me wrong though, itís lovely.

(22 oz bottle) Yes I get it. Very clever use of roasted things to give the lovely chocolate nose and body, lovely soft middleness and palate pleasing IBU levels makes this a really easy drinking beer. Not however spectacular but pretty awesome the same. Found that I didnít feel the need to have to balance this with food and on itís own was good enough. Wanted it to be íricherí or ífruiterí but that would then have made me explode with happiness, as it is Iíd suggest get in!

Always good to have an American stout that does taste like a stout, and not some Jaegermeister herbal crap. Thereís plenty of dark chocolates here, with some tart red fruit up on the aroma, and a nice creamy feel. Tart, bitter in the finish. Not with the vegemite/soy sauce of many other foreign stouts, but still very nice.
