COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In our hometown in 1965, Muhammad Ali won the world heavyweight title with a knockout blow some consider a "Phantom Punch". As our tribute to that fight, this big flippin stout packs a wallop of its own, with a ghostly hint of cocoa nib s and vanilla beans.

Bebum (806) - USA - JUL 16, 2016
Dark copper, explosive head, little lace. Liqueur and coffee nose. Medium to full body, intense flavor, bright and subtle mouthfeel, avg length, balanced finish. Bitter, crisp, appears drier than it is. Coffee more than chocolate flavor, vanilla. Big but lean stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

demannu (401) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2016 Dark brown pour with a large frothy tan head. Aroma is malty but not overly pronounced. Solid stout backbone, malty, slightly roasty, mild bitterness in finish, not my favorite flavor profile. Soft, medium body.

dmac (5715) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 3, 2016
12oz can from Xroads. Poured a decently thick pitch black with a thick foamy mocha head. Aroma of vanilla extract, ash, char, soy sauce, cola, burnt chocolate. Flavor isnt quite as complex more like vanilla extract, muffin, ash, char and berry skins. Body is medium at best, average carbonation at best, lingering lightly charred aftertaste.

polo_marco (322) - milton, Vermont, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Smells of straight strong black coffee. Nice deep rich black color. Taste is to die for strong cocoa nibs with a strong coffee profile with nice mmalty finish on the backbone. Carbonation is perfect for the style of beer. All in all I can say this could be one of my favorite stouts. Once again Baxter coming out with a nice brew.

gripweed57 (1412) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2015
12 ounce can. Opaque dark brown color. Large thick tan head. Rich malty aroma, redolent of cocoa and java. Lots of roasted malt flavor with notes of cocoa, black cherries and coffee. Resiny hops balance this nicely.

Single can from Julios. Pours out jet black with a light brown head that fades to a thin lace. Super malty aromas and flavors. Dry roasty bitterness. Good balance. Heavy body. Dry bitter finish.
