This bottled brew from a grocery store poured a large sized head of cascading foam brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a opaque dark black brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The nice aroma was raisin roasted malt toasted malt dark chocolate and dark malt. The mildly vinous mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a strong dark malt aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of roasted malt mildly vinous toasted malt mild hops chocolate and dark malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again. iugrad93 (265) - Indiana, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Pours thick, black, and oily with a cocoa, frothy head and average lacing. Aromas of chocolates, some coffee, and vanilla. Taste is sweet but not overly sweet. A little bitterness on the finish. Nice carbonation, not too flat. Creamy, smooth and sticky. Little alcohol burn, but warming. Finish is long and dry. Overall, I am impressed with this one. Not real complex but sometimes simple is better. Very well done. DWestrick (819) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 14, 2013
bottle. This is one fantastic Imperial Stout. First I’d heard of this brewery - but they now have my attention. One of the best imperial stouts I’ve had in a while. Serious taste and remarkable palate. Big fan shrubber85 (11670) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle. Chocolate, coffee, molasses, oak and alcohol aroma. Dark brown with moderate tan head. Smoky chocolate/molasses malt flavor with a moderately bitter herbal finish. A tad rough but damn tasty. jmarsh123 (166) - Indiana, USA - OCT 4, 2013
Pours an opaque black with almost no head. A bit of lacing down the glass.

Smells heavily of chocolate with a little bit of sweetness from the molasses I’m presuming. Not a whole lot of complexity in the nose, but nothing bad here either.
Very thick and syrupy initial sweetness rounding into a profile heavily featuring roasty malts. Very chocolately throughout with a little bit of a coffee/roast finish along with a little bit of booze. Good balance between the roast and malt overall.
Nice and creamy. Carbonation level is a tad high for the style, but not a detriment. Medium-thick without being cloying. Alcohol burn is slightly present, but pretty well masked for the ABV.
I haven’t especially liked anything from this brewery before, but I can say this is a very solid beer. Not world class, but a very good smooth and creamy stout I’d be happy to drink anytime I’m the mood for something heavier. The price point is a bit high for a new brewery trying to establish itself, but this a flagship beer so get these out to the masses.
Pours black with dark tan head. thome50 (1295) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Scent is spiced...molasses and vanilla.
Taste is sweet chocolate and wood.....
Coffee bitter and alcohol burn in back.
A little harsh, but very good.
Bottle. (Not totally sure if this is the right beer, mine said Bourbon barrel aged and black wax) Pours a dead still flat black. Aroma of milk chocolate through and through. Taste is more milk chocolate, slight toffee, barrel and vanilla. Mouth feel is really good for a flat beer. bluejacket74 (1995) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2013
12 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours very dark brown/black with maybe a half inch tan head that fizzled away quickly. However, there is a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like roasted malt, molasses, espresso, and bittersweet chocolate. The taste is sweeter than I expected since the aroma was more roasty and bitter, it tastes like molasses, roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, caramel, dark fruit and espresso. There’s a slight roasty bitter coffee finish, but the sweet flavors linger around longer. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s a bit coating and creamy with low carbonation. I liked this brew a lot, I wouldn’t mind picking up another bottle of this and also trying some of Cutters other brews at some point. patrick767 (4397) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 18, 2014
tap - Pours black with a small tan head. It smells of chocolate malt, roasted coffee, and alcohol. The taste is sweet and full of roast chocolate malt. There’s some booze noticeable but it doesn’t detract from the beer. It’s full bodied and when I had it immediately after some Old Rasputin, I found the Cutter’s to be a little more intense. Both are very good, of course. Well done.
