COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The thing about stouts made with additions of things like coffee is, while they taste "just like coffee," they taste "just like coffee." A well constructed stout is a study of potential flavors. Both bitter and sweet at once, with just four ingredients aromas can ping-pong between: coffee, chocolate, vanilla, smoke, dark fruits, molasses, and myriad others without running over each other. Drink Unjunct and dont ask us to treat this one.

Bulk_Carrier (4702) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - MAR 9, 2017
Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a thick jet black pour with a good finger and a halfs worth of dark tan head. Dies off at a nice pace. Filmy lace coats the sides. The aroma bleeds sweet to spicy black licorice coating some dark fruits but also with milk and dark chocolate flowing all into it very nicely. Nice level of roast for balance. The flavor moves between the roast and the sweet of the combination of dark fruits, molasses, black licorice, milk and dark chocolate. Semi-sticky roasty aftertaste flowing nicely into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a fair sessionable to sipping quality about it. Mild carbonation. ABV felt a tad lower than projected by the brewer, but Im okay with that. Overall, wonderful American Stout that I would love to have again. Too bad, I had to drive out of my current distribution to find this gem.

mathieuc (3771) - Qubec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 9, 2017
Pours a very dark brown with an offwhite rim that leaves spotty lacing. Nose is of coffee, green pepper and pumpernickel bread. Taste is lightly sweet and offers coffee and chocolate mostly. Body is medium-medium-full and carbonation moderately high (problematic). Overall an alright coffee stout that could be less carbonated.

gripweed57 (1500) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - FEB 26, 2017
16 ounce can. Opaque black ink color topped by a large rocky tan head. Earthy roasted malt nose has notes of ash, coffee and tobacco. First sip yields notes of black coffee, tobacco and bakers chocolate and a viscous mouthfeel. Midtaste brings smoke and sweet black licorice. Finish is bittersweet chocolate and subtle resiny hops. A real American Stout of Cartonic proportions.
