COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, roasty stout takes flavor to the extreme. We arent afraid to use plenty of rich roasted barley and a mountain of hops to give this full-bodied stout that little extra something youve been looking for in a beer.

Roasty, smokey, little bit chocolate, wants to get sweet but the bitterness prevails in the end. Nice.

12oz botle. Black, opaque with a thick mocha colored head. Roasted malt aromas, coffee, bitter chocolate. Medium body, average in texture. Light on the flavors. Maybe Im drinking too many Imperials. Coffee,cocoa, light hops. Overall an average stout.

bottle. mmm, mmm good! best beer of the night i would say. Poured a nice rich chocolate color with a good tan head. Nice and sweet with lots of roasted barley taste, hints of the obligitory chocolate and coffee, as well as a nice hop ending that made this beer wonderfully complex and quaffable at the same time, my kind of session beer. Pretty sweet and reminiscent of the Anchor porter.

thehinge (292) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 29, 2005
Black pour that lets just a little light through. Off white head that dissipates quickly....does lace nicely though. Aroma has a heavy roasted scent to it. Flavor is sweet in the front end and heavy hints of coffee in the back end. A good dry stout.

Very good dry stout. Heavy body with a very strong roast to it. Incredibly enjoyable. Hoppier than a lot of stouts Ive had. Great bitter finish.

lamas (1620) - Washington DC, USA - APR 20, 2005
Bottle. Jet black pour with ruby tints and a smallish beige head that leaves some good lacing. Roasty, chocolatey malts and licorice are present in the aroma along with plenty of hops. A hoppier aroma than many other stouts Ive had. Solidly medium-bodied. Tons of roasty flavors and hops give this some real bitterness. Very drying. A bit of a chocolate/coffee taste along with some sourness.

Brewso (238) - Mt Kisco, New York, USA - APR 17, 2005
Beige head that leaves clumpy suds on the side of the glass. Creamy, roasty aroma. Semi-rich taste with chocolate cream cut by a hop induced sour bite. For a dry stout this is on the creamier side. The dryness comes in at the end providing a clean break between tastes with no residual stickiness.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - APR 14, 2005
Dark brown, medium tan head and lacing. Smells like smoked fruit, hoppy, roasted coffee. Has a medium body for the style, well-balanced with coffee and some chocolate, dry and slightly bitter. Pretty solid all around.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 12, 2005
Coal black, creamy tan head. Roasted chocolate, mochachino, caramel, and toffee dominate the aroma. Flavor combines a nice roasted maltiness with a well bittered back end to keep balance throughout. Medium bodied, medium carbonation, drying, roasty bittersweet finish. A good choice for a session stout...
