Heavily roasted black and chocolate malts are added to our Pale base malt to create a uniquely bitter and rich finish to our Stout. With a rich, coffee-like texture and a dry and smooth finish, its the perfect winter companion with any of our winter oyster dishes. And if that werent enough, it makes the perfect black and tan along with our Pale Ale.

jtclockwork (15915) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 14, 2010
Bottle. Pours black with foamy tan head. Nose of barley, turpentine and grassy yeast. Taste is grass, tin can, hops, malt, stale coffee and lemongrass. I guess it is supposed to be a stout.

bhensonb (14890) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 28, 2010
Bottle from Ledgers Liquors. Pours dark, but its ruby where the light comes through. Head is a huge 4+ finger tan - see the picture! Aroma of smooth burnt toast. Not the harsh version. Medium body with lots of frothy carbonation. Flavor is pretty hoppy over dark burnt malt - but smooth - not at all harsh. It finishes more chocolate than not. Coffee pops out after awhile.

bu11zeye (13015) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 14, 2010
(500ml bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a dark brown body with a fizzy grayish tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, baking cocoa, toffee, and sour dough. Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, grass, dough, subtle anise star, and earth. Everything blends well, yet is still kind of dull overall.

DuffMan (10070) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 22, 2010
Bottle. Gassy pour, very dark brown, towering tan head. Fruity yeasty aroma with background roast, not a great start. Chocolate and roast fight it out with fruity tart yeast for dominance, all marred by something vaguely plastic. Reedy, bitter finish. Maybe I had an off bottle? I cant believe this took a medal...
