OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 18, 2014
16oz can served in a Prairie teku A - Pours black as night with a frothy tan head, excellent lacing patterns with ok retention. S - Nice roasted malts with solid hop aroma, hop oils, cold coffee, earthy. T - Roasted barley, coffee, some anise, a solid backing of green and citrus hops bring an adjoining bitterness to the roast. Has some salty characters, very savory with smoke and peat moss in the mix. Finishes with a dry roasty bitterness. M - Silky feel, medium to full body with adequate carbonation, dry roast finish. A solid stout. Bold flavors with a very nice dry-hopped aroma. This rivals Chocs Winter stout, which i hold in high regard. Iím digging the beers Iíve had from this brewery. Well done Roughtail!

burg326 (4658) - Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Poured a dark brown color with aromas of roast, nuts, light earth, and some hops. Flavors match the aromas with some nice earth, and chocolate, decent amount of hops, just not doing it for me, decent but not the best.

SudsMcDuff (6837) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2015
A cop is sitting in his usual speed trap spot and sees a truck drive by with the back full of penguins. He is understandably perplexed so he pulls the truck over.
"Excuse me sir, but why do you have all those penguins in the back of your truck?"
"Iím sorry officer, but I just donít know what to do with them!"
Incredulous, the officer responds, "take them to the zoo!"
The driver thanks the officer and drives off. The next day the cop is in the same spot and dang-it-all if that same truck doesnít drive by again, but this time the penguins are all wearing sunglasses. The frustrated cop again pulls the truck over.
"I thought I told you to take those penguins to the zoo!"
"I did officer, today weíre going to the beach!"

Tejas (928) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 21, 2015
I'm surprised at this rating. I think this is a very good stout that is very drinkable. Either people can't appreciate the dry bitter palate or they're just idiots.

AirForceHops (4501) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 4, 2014
16 oz. can thanks in trade to Phatdog1. Pitch black with fast dying, tan head. Aroma is old cold coffee, light roasted malt, caramel candy.

The flavor is pretty much identical to the aroma. Body is medium with a chalky texture. Moderate roasted character in the finish. Overall, average but rather easy to dink.

TXBadger (1916) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Pours a dark brown color with tan head. Roasted malt mainly on the nose; follows onto the palate. Thin body for a stout. Just ok.
