Flavors of dark chocolate and roasted malts are complemented by generous quantities of Northwest hops to give this dry stout an assertive but balanced profile. A traditional yeast strain lends further complexity to this rich dark brew.

decaturstevo (5613) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 27, 2008
A bit of a funky sour aroma. Thin cloudy brown pour with off white haeed and lace. It looked like a bw of sorts. Very bitter I could not drink it the very first beer Iíve ever spit back into my glass. Palate was fizzy and bad. Not much at all. This beer has one sick puppy it needed antibiotics bad.

Bottle courtesy of 5000: Pours a transparent dark copper mahogany with a thin ring of light tan head. Aroma of milk chocolate and roasted malts with a touch of burnt popcorn. Body starts momentarily sweet but quickly reveals an overwhelming sour acidity that thins the body and actual led to me spitting it out. I canít tell you how the finish was because I didnít swallow any. Very strange, because the aroma hid it so well.

AmEricanbrew (6463) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - APR 8, 2008
Dark brown with a slight tan head. Good cocoa, vanilla oreo cookie aroma with some fresh hops. Medium body. taste is buttery infected ( diacetyl to the hard core ) with roasted, almost burnt malt flavor which made this taste a little sour. A good brew if not for the off flavor. 927

kramer (5503) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2008
22 oz bottle, via 5000. Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a small fizzy beige head that ran to a ring quickly. The nose is very roasty with a slight sour mash note. Some coffee, burnt caramel, and chalk. The flavor is pretty acrid and burnt with a slightly sour tinge on the back end. Alot of malt derived bitterness, remindes me of day old coffee. Mouthfeel is on the thinner side with a watery texture and moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall, this was just too burnt and acrid for my tastes.

Bomber. Pours clear cola brown with ruby highlights and a thin and fading tan head. Not big in the aroma department, but a bit of cocoa and coffee are there to be found amid a somewhat ínuttyí background. Body tends to light, a bit watery, with minimal carbonation. Taste of molasses, dark chocolate, with a dry espresso and ash finish. This is a beer that almost works for me, but not quite. Thereís just something grainy in here thatís arguing with my taste buds.

Have had this sitting around since the SuperBowl - This was not a stout. It was at one time but has since gone; Sour. Has been refrigerated its whole life - not sure how it went bad. I will have to try it again some other time.

Pitch black with a creamy head. The aroma has light notes of roasted malt and chocolate. the flavour has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, cocoa, sweetness, a bit of coffee and a light bitterness. Itís smooth with a rather good body - uncomplicated and straight forward - thank you Tom/After4ever!!
