COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Stouts have a rich, deep and dark history— dating back over 400 years in Europe as a strong porter. Well, forget all that. Yes— this stout is classically dark, but close your eyes and take a sip. You’ll likely be surprised by how easy it is on the palate with notes of caramel, chocolate and roasted coffee driven by a wonderfully nuanced blend of dark crystal, black, roasted and chocolate malt.

Bottle drunk at home. Pours pitch black with dark cream colored head. Tastes of burnt sugar and coffee with a hint of dark chocolate. Slightly bitter aftertaste. (K)

Really good stout overall. Roasted heavily, tons of coffee. Bitterness is pretty heavy for the style with a nice roasted espresso bitterness too. The body is big but not super dense/viscous. The head is a thin dark beige that dies away quickly. Nicely done but kind of unimpressive.

Nice flavouring and hoppy conter-balace, but has a "cheap roast" taste which sadly lowers the bar.

Bottle from Albertsons. Perfectly balanced stout. Beautiful pour, near black body, thick, creamy head.Soft roasty aroma follows through to taste, gentle roast malt bitterness. Very subdued, but hits all the right notes. Simple, yet elegant.

JStax (7316) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2017
500 ml bottle poured into a wine glass. The beer is a thick black with a khaki head of foam. The aroma is roasty with hints of molasses, anise, and subtle ash. Licorice and roast are in the forefront. Bitter and roasty. Bigger body and moderate carbonation. Exceeds expectations, especially considering it was in the clearance section.

drpimento (3815) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2017
Appearance is very good with a huge frothy tan long lasting head. Aroma is dark roasty and dark ripe fruits. Flavor is similar to nose with licorice being prominent I don’t pick up much cocoa or coffee plenty of black patent malt. Great clean finish.

Opaque black color with light brown head of pillowy foam. Rich caramel malt and roasted coffee coming on strong like a caramel macchiato. More roasty than anything else from start to finish.

jsnicholas (709) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2017
Bottle (500ml): Black with one finger light brown head. Light roasted malt aroma. Taste is mostly toasted malts, smokey and a little ash. Medium body. I am not tasting a lot of caramel or chocolate. Maybe a little coffee. Dry, not too sweet.

3.7
robforbes (2279) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2017
Pours an opaque with a very small khaki head, and great lacing. Smell is of bakers chocolate, a roastiness, malt, some caramel, and coffee. Taste is creamy, espresso, chocolate, malt, and a slight sour.
