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.

Good stout! It could use more depth of flavor(it would probably barrel-age great like the porter). Very drinkable; and yet another solid beer from my favorite brewer in Indianapolis. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a black color with a tan head. Aroma is of chocolate, molasses, coffee, and roasted malts. Flavor is pretty strong with the molasses, coffee, and roasted malts. A hint of sweetness as well. Much better than I expected.

Strykzone (4478) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 3, 2013
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.

maxwelldeux (3083) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 21, 2013
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 (8094) - 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 (608) - 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 (5028) - 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.
