Nearly solid black in color, this is a full-flavored complex brew of roasted barley, sugar and a hint of honey. Once poured, the smoky aroma melds nicely with the creamy head for a beer drinking experience not for the timid. Brewed at Sudwerk for ReaperAle.

Blacker than black with tinges of dark mahogany. Thick, dark tan (blemished with orange) foamy head. Miniscule carbonation. Aroma of astringent black malts, roasted chocolate, barley, peanut skins and faint coffee notes. Very dry, initially. Airy, light on the palate and fluffy. Medium body. Huge roasted, burnt and chocolate malt base, yet super dry and not richly filling. Mild vinous hints and dabs of lactose. Creates quite the complex flavor profile. Dry stout or sweet stout? None the less, it is richly crafted. Body tries to exert itself as itís sitting but it remains fluffy. Highly roasted barley and bittersweet chocolate are the main players here. A burnt caramel sweetness appears late. Dry peanuts are present as well. ABV is a non-issue. Finishes with a rush of bittersweet chocolate, acidic black malts and a thicker body. A most daring stout.

A decent stout,(a light imperial stout at that), that has a little too watery of a flavor for my tastes. With a 7.75 AC, I think itís an easy buzz.

UPDATED: MAY 29, 2003 Very well made serious stout. Full flavored with hints of smokiness in the finish. I love the image on these beers and nowhere is it more appropriate than on the stout (after all I really can't imagine a Reaper Ale Honey Raspberry)
