COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a full-bodied stout with plenty of roast flavor as well as hints of molasses and chocolate. Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts make this stout smooth, creamy, and utterly opaque.

Pours dark brown to black with a thin creamy head. Aroma is mild; roasted malt and anise. Thick in the mouth with mild carbonation. Flavor reflects the roasting of the grains, though not as bitter as I’d expected. Persistant flavor lasts for a while after the beer is gone...this is a good thing.

detroiter (958) - Euphoria, Minnesota, USA - JAN 13, 2007
Pours a dark blackish color, with better than two inches of rocky-textured brown foam. Decent lacing. Sweet dark and roasted malt in the aroma. The flavor is very full - with deep roasted malt, strong coffee, and some oak tannin. Together, they combine in a thick oily mouthfeel, and finish with a bitter roast and slight whiskey flavor. Full bodied, moderate carbonation

Strykzone (7555) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 12, 2007
This might be the darkest beer I have ever seen. It also has a small and unusually dark head that lasts a minute or two. Aroma is malty and roast. Flavor is delightful. Everything you love about a stout is here. Plenty of roasted malt, coffee, caramel, chocolate, dark fruit, etc. This is truly a premium beer and it can’t get much better!

VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2007
12 oz bottle, courtesy of StompBrockmore - pours oily black, like crude in a glass, with a nice sized mocha head that soon settles to a thin surface layer. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, tar, some alcohol, and a very nice and unexpected yeastiness. That bready quality is a perfect counterpart to robust flavours of caramel, dark roasted malt, and coffee. Dry, roasty, chocolatey finish is superb. A hugely complex and delicious stout. Very, very nice.

brownaler (698) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - JAN 11, 2007
Pitch black appearance with a small tan head. Aroma of coffee and licorice melt together along with some chocolate. The palate lingers in your mouth for a while an then immediately goes into your throat. There is various fruits involved in the flavor like plum and raisin along a roasted bubbly flavor of hickory? A little thin for a stout, but has a unique character I love.

strangaj (250) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 10, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2007 Appearance is dark chocolate with a light almond colored head. Has an aroma of roasted coffee. Taste has a tinge of yeast and a hint of chocolate, but roasted flavor dominates. A very dry but steady finish and suprisingly light. This is a great stout for the price, but a little dry for my tastes.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JAN 9, 2007
A full-flavored, solid stout. Excellent head and appearance with, of course, a deep black coloring. A strong, roasted quality that stays long enough to savor and enjoy.

Looks like a stout, tastes like a stout but doesn’t quite smell like a stout. Taste is big on the roasted malt flavors. Some bittersweet chocolate hiding in there too. Very smooth drink. Slightly sweet but not overpowering. The roasted flavors last for a while after you are done with this one. Good, well balanced, stout.

4.5
Trooper11 (468) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2007
Pours a dark dark brown almost black with foamy tan head and alot of lacing, pretty good coverage around the glass. Aroma is very light, a sweet nutty aroma with hints of chocolate. Feels pretty thick in your mouth but not filling in your stomach. Dark chocolate flavor, creamy, coffee and molassas. Finishes with a nice solid bitter, not lasting.
