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 a dark black with a tan head and aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste is sweet and toasty, of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and coffee with slight bitterness as well. Flavors come together really nicely making this a drinkable and enjoyable stout.

spacecube (1675) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2017
Bottle, pours dark treacle brown, not much head, small off white lace. Aroma is a complex mixture of caramel, treacle, chocolate, roast, smoke, prune and raisin. Body is medium full, texture is full and viscous. Donít think this needs to come out of the fridge, added complexity as it warms. Finish has great balance, with light malt sweetness which dried. Soft to flat carbonation.

bastarda (496) - Freiburg, GERMANY - MAY 13, 2017
"Ridiculous amounts of black and caramel malts" - which must have been brewed right to perfection for this only 6-percenter so packed with aroma and flavor and with such a perfect balance of roast and chocolate, bitter and sweet, licorice and coffee, and a superb mouthfeel. Oh wow!

Truly an enjoyable drink. Licorice is light and perfect at the back end. Had never heard of brewers licorice before. What a find!!!! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

It might be May, but itís a chilly, rainy evening here in New York City, perfect time for a good stout like this.

Pi?knie i intensywnie w aromacie. Mnůstwo kakao. Troch? kawy i orzechůw. Barwa czarna i niska, be?owa obr?czka. W smaku ju? nie jest tak dobrze. Pierwsze wra?enie dosy? wodniste. Wybija si? kawa, brakuje kakao. Gorzka czekolada. Goryczka czekoladowa, dobrze zbalansowane ale brakuje porz?dniejszego finiszu. Troch? sie rozczarowa?em.

Pours a dark black with a nice creamy tan head that left some beautiful lacing around the glass. The aroma is chocolate, lots of coffee, medium to heavy roasted barley malts and brown bread. The flavor is more of the same. The mouthfeel is light to medium and drinkability is quite high.
