COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pours a dark brown with thick tan head and good lacing. Aromas of coffee and roasted malt. First taste of sweet dark chocolate and coffee with dark fruits becoming apparent as it warms. Spicy and bitter in aftertaste with alcohol coming through. Thin mouthfeel for a stout and a lot of carbonation. Too bitter and alcohol tasting for me. Was disappointed in it. Bought at Smooth Endings as a 4 pack. Drank 09/12/12. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This beer was great, thanks Jordan!!! The body had a deep brown body with somewhat of a head. Aromas revealed prunes and cocoa with a touch of coffee. The taste followed but more on the fruity side with a delicious chocolatey finish. This was a fun stout for sure - nice job here.

12 oz. brown longneck bottle. Best before 5/18/14 on bottle neck. Slight pfftt when opened. Poured out a deep, opaque brown color, with a thin mocha colored head. Aromas are licorice, burnt malt, smoked malt. I hate smoked beer. That aside, it has flavors of licorice, anise, chalky black malt, no hops at all. Mouthfeel is decent enough, so nothing special there. Flavors are of burnt malts, ashy aftertaste. Alcohol is fairly well hidden, however.
Nothing to brag about in my book.

Opaque black stout, thick creamy head. Smooth soft palate. Creamy dark malt. A stout of numerous subtleties. Chocolate, coffee, dark fruits. Minerals. Finishes smooth, malty and tangy. Nice and pretty drinkable.

Dark opaque beer with a nice sized khaki colored head, especially considering the abv. Aroma of dark fruits, minerals, and light smoky notes. Light roast, some slightly sweet black cherry notes, bitter chocolates. A hint of alcohol warmth in the finish.

Roasted coffee, chocolate, and dark pit fruit esters present. Moderate hop aroma, but balanced well with fruity Belgian type esters. Finishes very smooth. A very good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Rich, smoky sweet aroma. Pours dark black with a rich, creamy tan head. Tastes of sweet roasted malt, dark coffee, with a slightly tangy and spicy finish. Full, slightly effervescent feel in the mouth with a nice dry finish. Definitely holds up to the name Stout.

12oz bottle. Pours jet black with a thick but dissapating coffee head. On the nose there are plenty of burnt malts with a decent offering of espresso. Taste us very bitter with a distinct belgian fruit yeastiness with heaps of spice and raisin. Smoked malts coming through strongly on the back of the palate
