COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dark and opaque, with a big roasty malty nose, a slight hint of coffee and notes of sweet toffee, all swaddled in oaty creaminess, this beer delivers the full-bodied mouth-feel you expect from a stout.

12 ounce bottle bought in Indianapolis. An almost black pour that has a tan head. An aroma that is full of roasted notes and espresso. The flavor brings coffee and sourness. Citrus hops, black licorice, and oats. Bitterness comes late. This is below average because of the sourness.

Bottle. Nose has some nice smoking to it, and almost reminds you of a good steak. There is a bit of roasting in there, in both nose and taste. This is very drinkable, though not in the expected way.

I wasn’t expecting much from this but overall its pretty good! From the start, poured from a bottle, it has a very attractive smell like a marshmello that caught on fire in a campfire, nifty. Pur is a nice as any stout, big black and a handsome brownish head. Tase uis smooth and friendly, very good. I was expecting an impy stout wannah be but this is well reserved and civilized. Yes, quite interesting an fun. Overall nice beer drinking experience. Pleasantly surprised!

Sammy (8932) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle from Champane’s, less than six months old. A serviceable stout. Initially a little musty aroma. Black with virtually no head remaining. A little chalk, roast, chocolate malt. Decent drinkability. Undercarbonated and a bit above average mouthfeel.

First try from Triton - Hmmm... not the best in the business here. Lots of toffee and caramel on the nose; oily and wincing on the tongue. Not something I want to encounter in battle again.

Chuckaduck (669) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - APR 8, 2013
Bottle. 4/8/13. Pours opaque brown-black with a very thin brown head. Aroma is bread, chocolate, vanilla, fruit, molasses, sweetness (toffee?), hint of coffee. Taste is creamy, chocolate, fruit (berries, grapes), hint of alcohol, roasty; finish is slightly bitter, light coffee flavor. Well-balanced. Some lacing. Creamy, medium-full bodied mouth feel. Medium-low carbonation. Nice, drinkable, acceptable. At the 5.5 ABV, it’s almost sessionable. Wouldn’t write home about it, but I’d order a couple in a bar.

DrSilverworm (6945) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2013
12oz bottle, shared. Thanks to radarsock. Very dark brown, but still clear color, around the edges. Good, thin lighter brown head, little lace. Impressive nose - big roasty malt and dark fruit. Nice big flavor, good dark chocolate and roast malts. Light coffee in the finish. Flavor like a 7% stout. Medium body. Kind of creamy, good crisp carbonation. Nice big bitterness. Very solid stout.

b3shine (5825) - Indiana, USA - APR 7, 2013
Bottle to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a fairly opaque black with thin beige lacing. Smells solid too; roasty and malty. Tastes like it smells with a nice, dry mouthfeel. Solid beer.

12 oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass. Pours black with a one finger tan head that fades into a ring of bubbles and leaves a decent amount of lacing. Mouth watering aroma of chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Bitter hops and roasted malts dominate the taste. The hop bitterness is surprising. Did not expect that at all from the nose. Slight hint of toffee after it warms on the tongue. Long finish of even more bitter hops and raosty matls. Full bodied but a little on the thin side for a stout, sticky and creamy texture, average carbonation. Interesting stout in that the hops come through so strong, almost to the point of tasting like a Black IPA. Not a bad thing by any means and a nice change of pace from the average stouts. Overall a very enjoyable stout that I’d go so far as to call crisp tasting. Something I don’t think I have ever said about a stout before.

Bottle. Thanks josh. Pours black thin tan head. Smokey toasted aroma. Taste is slight tangy fruit maybe going south. Some roasted chocolate too
