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.

jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2005 Very dark clear brown, almost black with ruby edges and a quickly fading light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, milk chocolate and citric piney hops. Taste has strong notes of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and a significant dosage of citrus/pine hops. Moderately sweet. Roasty, lightly bitter finish. Medium soft body with subltle carbonation - needs more body. No lacing or head retention. Overall, solid stuff.

bottle. pours a deep, dark chocolate color with an extraordinary head. as I started drinking this one I wasnt sure if it was trying to be a sweet stout or a dry stout. it was kind of in between. but as it warmed the flavors seemed to blend and as I finished this brew it was quitw nice and smooth.

shadey (2101) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 19, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2005 Unfortunatly this bottle was frozen once before I was able to drink it After thawing out, I was still able to enjoy the huge roast coffee aroma. Plenty of roast and chocolate in the flavor. I can only believe that the freezing didnt do any real damage to this beer. Hop finish realy cleans up the finish. Quite a nice stout.

Volgon (2763) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Bottle: Black with a good-sized small-sized tan head. Huge roasted nose, with coffee, chocolate, and some hops. Full bodied with a dry ending, starts lightly bitter and ends a bit more bitter before ending dry.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 13, 2005
Im getting chocolate and cherries in the aroma, a hint of hops at the start and plenty of scrumptious roasted coffee beans in the finish. Well balanced, start to finish, and the coffee finish stays with you. Great mouthfeel too - nice and smooth. Nice after dinner beer. Im really starting to like this brewery all around.

DYCSoccer17 (3683) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 6, 2005
The nose is full of coffee and full of roastiness. Kinda has the aroma of my grandmothers mobile home, though. Maybe cinnamon in there or some kinda weird spiciness. Mostly opaque dark dark brown with a nice frothy light brown head. Quite roasty throughout finishing with a slight astringent bitterness with more roasties to finish. Rather thin, and certainly one dimensional.

hotstuff (5079) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 6, 2005
Bottle. Small tan smooth head that fully diminished, sparse lacing, fine-large sized bubbles, carbonation, opaque, and a dark brown hue. Aroma was roasty, coffee, malty, and some smokiness. Flavor was coffee, smokey, roasty, and malty. Tingly mouthfeel rather than a smooth one for this beer style. Just an average dry stout IMO.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Solid stout. Pours deep brown, almost black. Pefect head, about 1/3" thick and tan, looking somewhat like a snowdrift on top. Lacey, making thick, spread-out rungs on the glass as the levels drop. Smells of roasted coffee and heavily of dark molasses. Also picking up traces of something that smells like charcoal. Taste is lighter and more crisp than expected, but still is full. Malty and coffee-like; bitter and mouth watering. One of the most lingering aftertastes Ive had with a stout in some time.

YogiBeera (2570) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Big frothy head leaving laces on the glass. Nices Black color. Intense roasted malt and nut nose. Kind of thin smoked, tabacco taste, medium long lasting.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Black color, off-white head, smell lacing. Nose of campfire, sage, tarry black malts, some robustness. Strong astringency in the taste but some sweet complexity. Nice coffee note in the tail! Finishes smooth & balanced. Yummy!
