COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours black with a 4 finger tan head. Nice burnt/toast malt aroma. Maybe some hop bitter? Full bodied with very foamy carbonation. Smooth. Flavor is very dark chocolate with burnt malt for bitter. Hop? Maybe. It’s just very, very flavorful. Finish is towards dry with chocolate notes. Delicious.

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. It’s smooth with a rather good body - uncomplicated and straight forward - thank you Tom/After4ever!!

hopscotch (9113) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - OCT 18, 2007
Bottle… This beer rocks!... Pitch black ale with a mid-sized, creamy, khaki head. Terrific retention. Rich aroma of pistachio and milk chocolate with diacetyl and vanilla undertones. Sweet, chocolaty flavor. Not complex, just rich and tasty. Medium to full-bodied with moderate carbonation. Sweet, chocolate and coffee finish. I haven’t checked my stats, but this has to be one of the very best dry stouts I’ve ever tasted! Underrated, in my book. Big props to Degarth for sharing this gem of a beer!

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2009
22oz bottle. Poured a medium to deeper brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of burnt malts, roasty, some chocolate, and a little earthy. Tastes of the same roastiness, lighter coffee, earthy, and chocolate. I would say the roastiness and burnt quality dominate.
