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.

Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2013
UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 The flavors that stand out to me with this brew are alcohol and chocolate. The combination of those flavors I find pleasant. The mouth feel is thinner than I like a stout, but with a effervecient carbonation that is really enjoyable. I find a little banana in the finish as well. Overall nice beer that I would have no problem reaching for again. Orig rate 1/29/13...2.9. Aroma of coffee. Sips roasty with big coffee. Nice medium csrbonation. Very smooth and Sessionable with little alc taste even when served cold. Flavors of bittersweet chocolate in the finish. Body is medium, but it is a enjoyable texture, not too thin as I thought before.

The_Osprey (6841) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2016
Halloween 2016 - Bottle picked up at The Beer Boutique and shared at Matteos. As Lost Coast 8 Ball Stout, 5.8%. Dark brown or black, slight red hue, hazy and opaque, foamy light brown head, dotted lacing. Aroma is earthy, red berry, under-ripe berries, some blackcurrant. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is earthy, fruited dark chocolate, plummy with a dry finish. A full-flavoured fruity stout. Nice. (3.6)

Panzerfaust (822) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - NOV 22, 2016
355ml bottle from Jumbo Costanera Center. Santiago, Nov. 2016. Pours a pitch black color with a big rocky beige head that diminishes slowly. Aroma is strong in dark malts with notes of licorice, high-cacao dark chocolate, prunes, dark rye bread, earth and roast. Beautiful. Taste is sweet but well balanced with roast burning the back of the palate. Some dark fruit and lactic flavors, oats are also noticeable. Quite full bodied, intense brew. The thing that messes with the enjoyment is a pretty fizzy carbonation. With less of that it would be clearly a 4. Nice Stout anyway. Reminded me a little of Sam Smiths Oatmeal Stout.

Maybe just me but this really wasnt much as far as a stout goes. The aroma was okay but the pour was very thin and the taste was empty. I might try it again just to confirm...my rating and opinion doesnt seem to be the average...

mice (841) - FINLAND - NOV 4, 2016
0.33 l bottle from Saveur Bire. Dark beer with medium, but quickly disappearing head. Wonderful aroma has roasted malts, coffee, dark bread and caramel. Taste is a bit drier with hints of coffee and roasted malts. Some caramel and milk chocolate also. Almost medium body, but maybe a bit watery feeling, which is the only negative aspect of this beer.
