COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filled with the howling of black dogs that haunt the long forgotten shadows of the human soul.

Our inky-black stout had a smooth, round palate with a dreamlike undercurrent of bittersweet chocolate. This dense liquid-silk summoned hope from hibernation and balanced winter’s endless white snows with a rich swirl of creamy black rapture.

It’s a one-dimensional stout. Initially, t’s a little fizzy. Then there’s some mild malt flavor. It’s not that interesting.

Pours dark dark brown with lots of roasted malt and coffee aromas pouring from the top. Light tan head pervades with hints of bittersweet chocolate. Taste is moderate sweet with a light body and a creamy oily aftertaste. Great for a winter’s night

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Dark brown to black pour with a long lasting, soft tan head that tickles the upper lip with its softness. The aroma is full of coffee and cocoa malts like a good stout should have. Medium and delicate body. Eruption of coffee and smoked chocolate at first that evolves quickly into a more bitter finish that lingers at the end.

From a bottle. Pours very dark brown with a thin beige head and minimal lacing. Tastes bitter, dry, like coffee and dark chocolate. Fizzy feel. Hints of toffee and syrup sweetness. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like chocolate, toffee, with hints of bitter coffee.

Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with creamy beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, plums, dates, light chocolate, and some earthy notes. Flavor is dry roast malts, chocolate, some dark fruit esters, and light coffee bitterness; dry finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

Black in the glass. Dry crisp cocoa and coffee flavors. Slight smokey toasted nose. Overall, a very tasty brew. Thanks to BarZigKin for the trade...

3.5
Haslinger (985) - The World of Beer, Texas, USA - NOV 27, 2013
12 ounce bottle from a Magic Hat mixpack, deep midnight black pour, some chocolate and roasted coffee/malt, a bit thin for a stout but not too bad. Very drinkable.

3.3
esjaygee (3906) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Dark brown with ruby lowlights and a rocky beige slowly fading head. Semi-sweet aroma of roasted malt, chocolate syrup and earthy notes. Taste is a bit thin and chalky with chocolate, coffee, barley and grains. Finishes zippy and acidic.

3.8

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2013 A pretty typical stout. Nice chocolate coffee flavor with a thick body. Not as good as Guiness but still solid.
