COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is a rich, creamy, full bodied stout. When allowed to warm a bit the sweetness of the chocolate malt shines.

Enjoyed at the brewpub in Morgantown, it’s 4.8% abv. This sessionable stout is fine, it’s a dark brown with some head. Coffee in the nose. In the taste, I get more chocolate than coffee. On the malty side.

Last and best of the beers I tried 5/10/08. Black with creamy tan head. Aroma is sweet and medium malty. Flavor is sweet, with a hint of roasted malt. Medium-bodied, and very smooth and creamy. Enjoyable

My first impression is that someone collected the water used to put the campfire out and served it up in a stout glass. Very smoky and I love it. Nothing wishy washy about this brew it comes straight at you.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2008
Sample at the brewpub. This brew pours a flat black color with a medium beige head that burns away steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Roasty aroma of coffee and milk chocolate with hops and malt in the background. Medium-bodied and smooth with a roasted coffee character, along with some chocolate and burnt malt. The finish is toasty with a mild coffee aftertaste that lingers a bit. Above average overall.

11/1/07 - Sample at brewpub. Dark black w/ red tones. Roasted malt. Smooth. A bit of raisin and plum. Crisp finish. Normal stout, which isnít bad. Itís done well. Good stuff.

cheap (4159) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2007 Universally a good example of this style. Pitch black. Very little head, just a girdle around the inside edge of the glass. Canít smell much, the aroma is well behaved. Flat like a nitro beer on the palate. Not like imp stout in any fashion. Lighter than an Irish Dry. Fine lacing and legs on this beast. Building back of throat bitterness like I just ate some charred grill meat.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Sampled in mid-July 2006 from a growler courtesy of hopscotch, left over from the RBSG: Pours an opaque black with a frothy, wispy-lacing light tan head. Sweet sugary dark caramel malty aroma has some roasted smoky notes and hints of salty black olives. Starts with some sugary dark malty sweetness and a touch of dark fruits with a lingering roasty smokiness in the finish. A decent stout and quite drinkable.

Big thanks to hopscotch for sending me a Growler from a new state for me! Poured a deep black with an averaged sized (first pour was huge) light brown head. Nice looking. Aromas of roast, chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. I liked the aroma. Tastes of chocolate, vanilla, and roast. Tastes a bit of a let down compared to the aroma. Thin and creamy body. Nice lacing left on the glass.

Aurelius (4302) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 10, 2006
Semi-opaque coffee color, lacy camel head. Milky, coal tar and coffee aroma. Creosote and char, medium light sweetness, a certain dustiness. Green nuts towards the finish. Finishes with light astringency and acidity, but doesnít cling. Pretty good.
