COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not for the faint hearted! Our stout rewards the palate with robust flavor of roasted malts (malts are roasted like coffee beans) and heavy hops. A creamy smooth surprise.

black but not overly thick. lots of roasted barley and some smooth oatmeal aromas on the pour. good dark unsweetened chocolate (cocoa powder) dominates the flavor, with a roasted finish. quite good, but a tad harsh considering its a sweet stout.

Pours black with a very dark brown head....darkest Ive seen. Nice look to it. Aroma is very chocolatey and sweet. Loved the taste, heavy coffee hints and fruits in the finish. I enjoyed this beer.

mybrainhurts (394) - North Dakota, USA - APR 23, 2005
Midnight black pour with a chunky brown head. Mocha coffee, fresh barley oat aroma. Mild chocolate, oat and grain flavors. Lightly roasted, with a slight fruity/dry ending. This has a full mouthfeel, but thins out a bit as it travels to the back of the throat. Overall, I cant complain.

desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2005
Black bodies with a thick mocha head. Faint aroma of roasted coffee and barley. Flavor is bitter with some chocolatey undertones, but overall its a bit watery and bland. Not all that impressed.

dwyerpg (5884) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - APR 15, 2005
Ok, Ill preface this rating with the statement that I love stouts...but something is definitely wrong with this one. This is probably the worst stout Ive had. Its very thick, which is fine, but it just doesnt taste right. I poured out half of a couple of these.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 11, 2005
This pours thickly, very dark brown with a slender chocolate colored head. The aroma is of roasted barley, chocolate, and a shot of weak coffee. Its very creamy in the mouth. The flavor is chocolatey and roasted with some hop bittereness to balance out the sweetness. The finish is a dry mocha. Pretty good breakfast drink.

bottle. Pours a wonderfully viscious looking inky black. A very small tan head was present but it diminished rather quickly . A faint aroma of teriyaki? and yes, cat urine? (not in a bad way...is that possible?) From the first tatse I knew there was alot going on with this beer! A great depth of character here...intense sour /sweet pungent woody malt, very roasted tasting, big element of chocolate...weird metallic finish which I did not like...hops did not compete well with the juggernaught malt character, but gave a hint of balance..killer beer, really complex malt, this is great for a malt head? any of those out there? Really enjoyed this one! Best beer this week for certain.

HopsOrDie (687) - New Lenox, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2005
Black pour with a big brown effervescent head that calms down to nothing. Very roasted smell. Smooth creamy roasted flavor with low bitterness. Fairly light palate. Aftertaste is slightly medicinal.

HopasaurusRex (195) - Glen Ellyn, Illinois, USA - MAR 29, 2005
One of the best stouts out there. Very forward malt character with just enough sweetness and hop bitterness to balance. This is going to be my house stout from now on.

Rentalman (103) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 27, 2005
Draght- Pours out with a nice tanish white head with lots of roasted malt aroma. The flavor is all roasted malt and coffee with no bitterness just melting into a sweet after taste. Needs a bit more body to make it great but the flavor profile is really nice.
