Dry and surprisingly light-bodied. Malty sweetness and caramel flavors shift to distinctive dry-roasted malt notes.

"a decent take on a dry stout, but not quite standout. solid in every aspect, though. lots of roasted malt, maybe a tad hoppier than the norm for the style. dry, bitter finish."

Very enjoyable. Aromas of dark malt, chocolate, and vanilla. Flavors all came through in the taste. Very well balanced, silky smooth.

Sans grande surprise cette bière est brune avec une mousse beige. Au nez des notes de chocolat et de café froid, le tout agrémenté de houblon. Une bouche mince avec des notes de chocolat et de houblon. Pas mon style. (merci milan..pas la ville mais le gars)

Un stout pourpre qui construit une tête brune qui s’impose rapidement. Une dentelle qui s’installe après chaque gorgée. Un nez bien fruité et bien enlacé autour de notes sèches de cacao et de mélasse. Donc, des notes d’oranges, de raisins et de mûres qui vagabondent entre mes narines ravies. Sur mes papilles, des notes asséchantes de houblons américains et de malts bien travaillés. Je soupçonne le Cascade dans la salle à manger de ma langue avec un chandelier rempli de notes bien noires. Au palais, le liquide montre un corps moyen-faible avec un pétillement modéré et une texture huileuse. En finale, mon cerveau retient des notes amères de houblons bien aromatiques et des notes sèches de grains maltés. Très facile à boire. Un stout savoureux. Merci à Adam pour la bouteille.

Bottle, thnx to Bytemesis, cheers bro. Pours a very dark brown, almost black beer with a thick, creamy, beige head. Aroma of coffee, vanilla. Very subtle aroma’s, making it very inviting. Flavour is very nice, soft coffee fudge with caramel and vanilla touches in the background. Long lasting, bitter finish. Soft carbonation, decent mouthfeel. Awesome lacing on the glass, great beer. Incredible.

04-14-2011. 22 oz bottle. A: Pours absolutely black with a thin layer of tan head, great lacing. S: Smell is dominated by hops and lots of pine. Some burnt malts. T: Really outstanding. Huge roasted malts, I mean really roasted, lots of nice bitter black coffee and chocolate. Some hop bitterness balances out the malt nicely. The finish is very dry with more roasted malts. M: Medium bodied and creamy, good carbonation. O: A really great stout, very tasty and drinkable.

2011 bottle. Pours dark with a mahogany color if looked at closely. The head slowly dissipates and left a soft ring of foam that hugged my glass. In aroma I noticed sweet carmel malts, sugar, weak hop notes, and a mild roasted malt character. As for taste I picked up on carmel malts, medium level dry inducing malts, bittering hops, a pleasant roasty flavor, and a dark chocolate flavor. The finish had a nice dry intensity, there was a nice bitterness, and lastly the malts were lasting on my palate. It was a good finish but not great. Overall I enjoyed this but FFF stuff with a definitive hop character does seem to fall off when aging that I have experienced.
