COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Created by Created by Russ Brunner, FL.

Russ has been brewing for three years but this was his first venture into creating a recipe from scratch. The result of his hard work is a big malty stout with notes of chocolate and coffee that carry through to a velvety finish with hints of roasted cocoa. The richness is balanced by subtle citrus and pine notes from the American hops that add a touch of bitterness to this deep and satisfying brew.

Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of roasted malt, coffee and cocoa. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roasted malt, cocoa and burnt coffee with a smooth lingering roasty fnish.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2015
[Bottle] Jet black colored pour with about a half inch of cocoa colored foam on top. Heavy roast, ash, charred grains and coffee aromas. Bitter chocolate, espresso, tobacco, wood smoke, creosote and darker fruits in the taste. A herbal hoppiness cuts into the otherwise malty character of this beer. A little chalky. Finishes dry, with hints of grain husks. Tasting notes from 7/2014.

drowland (6824) - Georgia, USA - JAN 21, 2015
12oz bottle thanks to cbfobes, June 2014. Black pour with a small tan head, mild lacing. Lots of chocolate in the aroma, mild coffee, doughy malts, toasted caramel. Rich flavor, chocolate and coffee apparent again, from the malts, a distinct bitterness hits the tongue, borderline astringent, not much hop presence. Not bad.

Homer321 (2744) - Melboring, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle to snifter. Still a bit cold, but nose is showing a deep, dark chocolate aroma, slight cocoa, and a soft, rounded roastiness. Pour is black with a light brown, small head. Taste is slightly sharp initially, quite bitter, but a complimentary sweet malt backbone. Significant alcohol warming for only 7.2%. Not really getting much hop flavor. The alcohol is really making this one rough though

From a bottle poured a dark color with a small amount of head. Nice toasted malty flavor with a quick finish.

jgb9348 (5092) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 27, 2014
Deep dark brown coloured body with a nice three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, oatmeal, nuts, earth and some bright cherry notes. Medium-bodied; Strong roasted malt flavours with some earth, cream, nuts, licorice and coffee noticeable. Aftertaste shows a lot of body and quite a bit of roasted and pungent malt character. Overall, a nice stout and is fairly similar to what I was expecting - not great and not poor - average. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Giant Food in Falls Church (Skyline), Virginia on 03-May-2014 for US$1,66 sampled at home in Washington on 27-September-2014.

Butters (3960) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Black pour with dense brown head. Great aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Very roasted deep cocoa notes and earthy bitterness. Sweet, but with some decent piney hop bitterness for balance. Earthy finish. Fantastic stout.
