COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold and complex from a tremendous amount of roasted malts, yet smooth and rich from the addition of oats. Dissent has its own opinion of what a dark beer should be.

JK (5632) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2012
It seemed like more of a brown ale, a very good brown ale. Fresh and well hopped for the style. Well roasted but not burnt, and a very good palate. Sampled on draft, at the brewery.

Skyview (5477) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Sampled on draught at the brewery tap room in St Louis Park, MN. Pours an opaque dark brown colored brew with an average tan head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind a beige film on glass edge and a thin off-white ring. Aroma of roasted dark malt, some chocolate malt, a hint of anise, light coffee and floral hops. Taste is medium to full bodied, with complex flavors of chocolate and black malt, some black licorice, oatmeal, and floral hops. Finish is quite smooth with some chocolate/oatmeal malt aftertaste along with some mild bitterness.

dmac (5384) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2012
Bottle shared by pineypower. Poured a solid pitch black body with an average to slightly smaller dark beige foamy head with a vigorous pour. Aroma is very roasty with light chocolate, well done toast and slight charcoal. Full body, dry, softer carbonation and a lingering roastiness. Flavor of charcoal, burnt malts and dark burnt chocolate. Solid beer.

22 ounce bottle that pours a dark brown with aromas of coffee, chocolate, resin, roasted malt, and a touch of dark fruits. Flavor is dark chocolate, coffee, some roasted malt, and has a smooth finish. This is my 4th beer from these guys, and havenít been disappointed yet.

Autumn Brew Review 2011. Black color with a medium head. Moderate coffee aroma. Big milky and coffee laden flavor, even though this isnít a breakfast stout. Light roasted barley character. Medium to light body. Alcohol didnít show up at all, even at 7%.
