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.

Rather enjoyable--in fact, it stood out against a backdrop of other typical-range craft beers. Very dark, good roasted nose, rich chocolate flavors with nothing off-putting. Good dry, low-hops profile. Very drinkable. And at $4.99 for a bomber, this is very good value. Bottle.

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 haven’t been disappointed yet.

bottle... get for a stout not if you’re thinking black ipa... the aroma has tons of chocolate, sweet, a bit of vanilla, good... the taste is more of the chocolate but a bit more balanced, alcohol is a bit low for what it is, if this was 10%, would be a rock star

22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with Atom. Pours black with a moderate brown head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left partial lace. Very pleasant aroma of roasted malt with ample chocolate and coffee present in the nose as well. Very inviting. The flavor is similar again with roasted malt and lots of chocolate and coffee. Moderate roast bitterness at the finish. Rich and smooth on the palate. Full bodied. Very nice beer!

Bottle thanks to Rob. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong roast, coffee bean, oak. Medium mouthfeel with roast, coffee, dark chocolate. Good.

22oz bottle from Atom via Free Beer Week, thanks Adam! Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is smooth dark chocolates and roasts with some molasses, a bit of a milky chocolate sweetness, and a light anise. Flavor is roasty and smooth up front with a nice dark chocolate and slight milk chocolate sweetness. A bit of a molasses sweetness and a touch of dark fruits before the roasts become somewhat ashy and this finishes pretty dry with a light bitterness, but balanced enough with some chocolates offering a medium-light sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a solid stout. Big roasts that get pretty ashy and dry, but a nice chocolate and slight molasses sweetness to keep things balanced. Enjoyable.

theisti (3175) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - DEC 5, 2011
22 oz bottle purchased at The Four Firkins in St Louis Park, Minnesota. Pour is a deep black brown, with a smallish light khaki head. Aroma is roast, ash, and some general sweet molasses malt. Taste starts quite dry with mineral, gypsum, the roast, the char, and then dries out with ashiness in the back. Really none of the sweetness from the nose is present, its really all about the ash and char. Palate is medium to light bodied, finish is all about the dry ashiness. A bit heavy on the ashy character. Nice enough, and certainly a unique take on the style.
