Tasted on tap at Augusta Brewing in Augusta, Missouri. Deep black appearance with creamy black head. Great dark malty flavor with definite chocolate and coffee hints. beernbourbon (1600) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - OCT 24, 2011
Tap at winery. Pour is deep brown/ almost black with a small dark brown head. Aroma is loaded with milk chocolate, roasted malt, light coffee, light brown sugar, and a hint of hops in the background. Flavor is also very rich and full with loads of roasted chocolate malt, light coffee and a silky smooth finish. This was a huge surprise, excellent and so drinkable too. Left a thick dark brown film in the glass. loved it. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 11, 2004
This beer rocks!...Very dark, crystal clear, burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The nose is of burnt maple syrup, maple smoke and mocha. The flavor is just like the aroma. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter-sweet, dry finish. World class stout! seymour (2120) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Tasted at the 2012 St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival from tap into sampler glass. The recent 1st place winner at the Great American Beer Festival for Dry Stout, same category as Guinness! Obviously an excellent, true-to-style stout. Dry, dark, roasty, hints of chocolate, coffee, dark fruit. Nothing imperial strength or crazy about it, but very smooth and enjoyable. Highly recommended. phaleslu (10670) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 9, 2011
Draft pint at The Stable. Pours a dark, semi-opaque chocolate brown color with a small, creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, powdery milk chocolate, light coffee roast, cream, toasted brown sugar, and maple syrup. Flavor of roasted malts, dry cereal grains, chocolate, light coffee, cream, toasted sugar, a hint of maple syrup, and earth. Dry, roasty finish. Medium-bodied, with average carbonation and a dry, roasty mouthfeel. This is an absolutely perfect example of the style. I had some mussels with it and the pairing couldn’t have been better. Best Augusta beer I’ve had so far.
