Originally brewed for our brewery that once was located at Lake Sonoma Winery. This nitrogenated dry stout is low in alcohol but big in flavor. Its smooth roasted coffee like aromas and flavor are clean and drinkable.

On tap nitro at Russian River Brewery in Santa Rosa. Pours black with a creamy light tan head and aroma of sweet cocoa. Taste is smooth and creamy, nice sweet chocolate and cocoa with burnt roasted malt and bitter coffee notes leading to a creamy, chocolatly finish. Delicious brew

Brain_Parasite (70) - California, USA - NOV 10, 2013
Pours black. Not a powerful aroma, bread and caramel. Good flavor, roasty, smokey flavors and a little caramel sweetness. Not an overpowering stout, but enjoyable.

Rated from backlog. Aroma is roasted with some coffee, hints of licorice and English toffee. Flavour is rather roasted with some oeat and coffee. A bit light palate.

Alla spina al brewpub. Forse la birra che ho meno apprezzato di Russian River, forse perchè il livello delle altre è eccelso ma questa mi è sembrata mancare di carattere. Una stout tutto sommato normale.

Pours roasted malt, chocolate and caramel. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with a roasted chocolate and dry finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (13108) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. it pours a reddish brown body, clear, and topped by a light beige head. Curtains. The aroma is on the dark malty side, with coffee, bonfire notes and some dried fruits. Full body, pleasant carbonation, with flavors of roasted malts, some nuts and dried fruits. Lasting finish. Not impressive, but tasteful anyway. 130806
