Pours a dark black with a moderately thin, tobacco coloured head. This beer has an aroma of dark roasted malt without the fainted hint of hops in the aroma. It tastes, likewise, of dark, burnt malt and just enough hop bitterness to even things out. It has a balanced mouthfeel that is neither to thin and watery nor too thick. Overall, a much more versatile stout than many of the ones Iíve had, and this beer is certainly worth itís mettle.

The 12 oz bottle was courtesy of Strykzone. I poured jet black a very robust and attractive tan head with moderate lacing. Nose of toasted malts and chocolate. Rich bold body and a smooth creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is rich and in addition to chocolate I get some licorice. Light bitterness in the finish. This is a very nice stout, easy to drink,. and I feel fortunate to have gotten to try this one thanks to Strykzone.

Pours reddish brown black with tan head. The smell is smooth and mellow for being dark. The taste opens up immediately with sweet light roast and a big fruitiness, cherries and apples and figs with a great chocolaty finish. This was better than I even expected although it does get very dry and grainy a it warms losing its smooth palate.

12oz to pint has a small creamy cap revealing sumptuous dark brown underlying fill. Color preludes mochachino aroma that advances into taste. Nice balanced body with continued complexity and light bitterment towards end. A stout worth talking about.

Well there is no need to ever buy Guinness in St. Louis again. Dark pour with a thin dark carbonated tan head. Coffee chocolate and some fruit in the nose. Taste is the same, and very smooth. 8% alcohol is well hidden. Great beer from a brewery that has been slowly winning me over.

Just a great dry stout. Pours a silky black with a light brown head. Aroma is rich roasted malts and dark chocolate. Taste is roasted malts, dry sweet dark chocolate with a small hop bitterness in the end.

This was a nice surprise! Pours deep brown with no head. Huge chocolate aroma. Very smooth, malted finished with a slight hop bite. Well done.
