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.

Bottle. Black Pour, big chocolaty tan head. Some chocolate, roast, and alcohol in mild aroma. Taste is very nice - tons of chocolate, very rich roast, with hops in the background. The mouthfeel is thick, rich, and creamy. A truly outstanding tasting stout. Lovely lingering roast at the end. One of the best stouts I have ever tried, thanks to Captain Cougar for the trade.

Pours a dark black with rich brown head that fades quickly. Chocolately aroma with roasted accents; both of which dominate the taste. Full bodied - borders on creamy with a simple light carbonation. Very good, and yet quite simple.

12 oz bottle. Pours black with a creamy chocolaty head. Smoky chocolate aroma. A little of that smoke comes through in the flavor. Nice combination with the chocolate. Certainly worth the effort!

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2006 My last rating of this was bad...as styles pointed out. Things this beer is...tasty. Itís not huge, but it is perfect for anytime of the year. Iíll rerate it more adequately when I have a bottle in hand.

jefcon (1703) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2005
Barbecue and chocolate cake aroma, some smoke and plenty of roasted grain. The beer looks great, too, an impervious deep chocolate brown with lacing that practically climbs the glass. Palate is smooth and creamy, with a deconstruction of smoke and hops on the finish that liven the beer up. Chocolate, woodsmoke, and coffee all come through on the tongue, and stay there lingering awhile. A complicated beer thatís easy to love.

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 22, 2005
Pours black with a small tan head. Smells very complex, notes of cream and caramel and bittersweet chocolate. Taste is crazy with cream, oatmeal, bittersweet chocolate, caramel and java. AFtertaste is complex and long lasting. Nice beer.

Dogfish120 (143) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - DEC 21, 2005
Bottle: Nearly black body with small charcoal head. Nose was of buttery molases and hints of candied syrup. At first the moutfeel was thinner than I expected, although right on for a stout. Nut, chocolae, java, and butter flavor with no alch retention, very smooth and balanced.

This is a tasty stout with hintsof coffee, molasses, and yes lots odf coco/chocolate. has a nice roasted malty/hoppy taste sweet then fades to bitter. A great brew. Almost as good as the Special Double Cream Stout but not quite as smooth or chocolaty. This one goes by itself NO food needed here... it is a meal in itself !!
