Barley, wheat, rye and oats provide the foundation for this big stout. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, creme brulee. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish. Such a robust beer stands well by itself, but also makes a wonderful end-note to any rich, indulgent meal. Discover the secret of combining this roasty ale to sweets, by pairing with dark chocolate or caramel, or even by pouring it over ice cream.

tfontana (932) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 25, 2016
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass. Aroma is dark fruits, roasted malts, a little bit of chocolate, vanilla, alcohol. Appearance is opaque black with 2-finger width creamy head with excellent retention and nice sudsy lacing. Taste is dark fruit, roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, late coffee. Palate is medium bodied with smooth, creamy texture, soft carbonation and balance of sweet and bitter finish. Overall, this is great all around. Sweet, to be sure, but with enough roasted bitterness to balance it out and the mouthfeel and look are fantastic.

puboflyons (3364) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 10, 2016
From the 12 FL oz bottle acquired on a trip to Texas. Black as night heady pour. Lacing. The aroma brings out a dark malt sweetness as well as a notable boozy character. The body is full. The taste is nicely dark and roasty but like the nose the booze lingers. But it is still quite excellent.
