COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2010
Draft. A pitch black beer with a dark brown shine under a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt as well as a bit of soy sauce. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt as well as light notes of sulphur, leading to a dry and bitter finish. The body is a bit thin.

yngwie (13575) - 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

Nitro tap at the brewpub. Dark brown color with ruby hilites and a fine tan head. Chocolate aroma. Smooth body with smooth nitro bubbles. Flavor is mostly chocolate to me. Hardly any burnt toast - just as an undertone. Finishes very mellow.
