COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This monster was created with some of the best chocolate and roasted malts to create the perfect blend of stout fullness and minimal fruit esters. This beer will have you trying to decide if you like fullness or the myriad of coffee and chocolate undertones more. It will also have the other stout brewers gathering the torches and storming our door.

rich and creamy, a bit more sweetness with the caramel adding more balance to the big roasted and cutting the edge of the roasty bitterness,

Ughsmash (7177) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2010
On tap at Terminal. Poured medium-deep cola brown with a ring of off-white head. The aroma picked up lots of sweet and slightly darker chocolates paired with vanilla and rolled oats.. sweet and welcoming. The flavor found semi-sweet chocolate all the way through.. light cocoa bitterness and related sourness on the edges.. bittersweet, roasty finish. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, with increasing bitterness as it progressed.. moderate carbonation.. decent feel and flow.. I’d gladly have another.

On tap at the brewpub in Chattanooga. Dark, ruby red to black pour, off-white head - nice lacing. Aroma of chicory, coffee, licorice. Flavor has some of the same elements with some chocolate making its presence known as well. Nice lacticity. Best of my visit to the brewhouse.

Suttree (5231) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 22, 2009
Black, thin tan head. Aroma is coffee and Oreo Cookie. Perhaps Oreo dunked in a cup of coffee, then a piece of the Oreo breaks off and you drink the coffee anyway because you really don’t feel like getting up and getting more coffee, and it ends up tasting pretty good? Yeah, something like that. Flavor is basically a repeat of that whole coffee / Oreo thing I just said, plus some nice dryness in the finish. Good Stuff.
