Ferris (15013) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
Draft - Molasses, oatmeal and lots of toast. Deep maroon with almost no head. Sweet dark fruit, raisin and a sweet finish. Fruity and almost too sweet, but interesting.

Draft sample. Poured a black color with a medium off-white creamy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium toasted chocolate malt aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of average duration. Solid drinkable brew.

Tap at Bent River on Nov. 26, 2011. Dark brown pour with a small head. Coffee and cocoa on nose and taste. Very nice.

3fourths (9331) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2008
Full and frothy, lip smacking with some sweet oats and some bready, malty and dry notes, good sweet roast flavor, with a doughy, chewy mouthfeel. Good stuff.

UPDATED: MAY 17, 2010 Have had on tap many times at Bent River, and this is one of my favorites, and is my fiancee’s absolute favorite. Great coffee and chocolate notes, a creamy mouthfeel, and an all around great beer.

radagast83 (8011) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2012
4oz sampler at the Bent River brewpub. Poured a close-to-black color with a small tan head. Aroma had plenty of chocolate malts, with some grain and oat characters, some cereal. Flavor was nice and chocolate, with oat-grain notes. This was pretty enjoyable. I enjoyed the palate a bit more with this one over the Uncommon Stout.

3.3
Iphonephan (6951) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2014
On draft at the brewery in Rock Island IL. Pours a clear dark cola with an off white head. Nutty aroma. Flavors of charred wood with some chocolate and coffee notes. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, bitter roasted finish.

3.5
wlajwl (6747) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - AUG 28, 2015
Aroma is dark malts and earthy. The flavor is dark malts, milk chocolate, light fruit and a mildly acidic/smooth finish.

3.6
Braudog (6675) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Nice flavor on this black beer with a sticky head. Roasty, toasty and pretty high on the smoothness meter ... slightly above average.
