Not much of anything here. Tastes kind of watery and leaves a very smokey taste in the mouth. Try something else. Tmoney99 (14374) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2005
Bottle. Black color with medium light brown head. Good stout aroma. Full well balanced toasty barley and nut flavor. Full body and good finish. Bockyhorsey (2628) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 28, 2005
Aroma of roasted nuts. Black body with good chocolate head. Good lacing left in the glass. Sweet and rich roasted flavor made this one a decent beer. No bad aftertaste good job Avery. NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2007 Great smell. Like a BBQ just lit with fresh cedar chips. Nice deep black color, but hard to get a head out of it and what little I teased up faded fast. Mmmm quaffable and bitter without being annoyingly over-hopped like a lot of Averyís stuff. Damn solid beer that Iíd LOVE to see on draft somewhere.

Straight out of the bottle, heavy roasted. Pours nice and black, tan head. Finish dry and a little bitter.

Roasty, smokey, little bit chocolate, wants to get sweet but the bitterness prevails in the end. Nice. BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2005
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 Iím drinking too many Imperials. Coffee,cocoa, light hops. Overall an average stout. beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 3, 2005
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 letís 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. Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 22, 2005
Very good dry stout. Heavy body with a very strong roast to it. Incredibly enjoyable. Hoppier than a lot of stouts Iíve had. Great bitter finish.
