COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
All light vanishes here. The pitch-black color and cocoa-espresso aroma and flavor are derived from roasted barley while the complexity is enhanced by the strength of this foreign-style stout.

16 ounce can. Pours a pitch black color with a small beige head. A nice soft roasted malt nose, chocolates. Very nice flavor. That wonderful metallic roast I love, milk chocolates, some ash, vanilla. On the sweet side at times. Solid.

16 oz can poured, generously sent over by Now. Thanks! Very fun try here. Always great to ty a top 50 too. Jet black pour, so I suppose the name fits. A nice roasted heavy constant. Toasted malt and coffee grounds. A touch of smoke. Big roasted lingering character. A nice sipper of a stout here. Good stuff.

Can in Seattle. Thanks Andrew. Small ring of tan, coffee head. Dark, heavy brown black body. Nice rich nose of soy, coffee, and bitter roast grain. Dark barley, burnt caramel, moderate weight body. Well balanced. Snappy, balanced clean bitter finish. Pretty delicious. Nice.

2017-10-20. Black body, small tan head. 3++ Aroma is very dry, coffee like roast malt character. Flavour is similar mild sweet dark malt core, dry bitter roast. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. Decent but I find the roast character a bit much for my own tastes. 6-7/4/6-7/3/15-16 Cask Days 2017, Toronto.
