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.

Midnight complexion with slight head. Aroma of dark chocolate and chicory gives a bitter taste. Long finish.

Bought on a whim at Wegman's in Henrietta, NY. A somewhat decent brew - lacks good body and the finish is a little harsh with the bitterness. Hay, nuts, roasty, grass, earthy, licorice, woody,

An uninspired yet just adequate enough Stout to enjoy. Wouldn’t drink more than one.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2017 12oz bottle picked up at the state store
Pours dark brown with a small beige head, light lacing. Aroma of dark roast malts and chocolate powder. Flavor of roasted malts, coffee, caramel, ashy and chocolate, leather

dnstone (3745) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Nice roasted coffee aroma with some smoke character. Pours a black in color with a light tan-colored head. Flavor carries coffee with cream and chocolate. A pretty good stout and not too high in ABV.

oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 14, 2016
Pours a dark brown, with a small tan head. Aromas of faint chocolate with some roasted malts. Flavor isn’t as big as I like, a little chocolate/coffee and some mild hops.

Admittedly, I’m not a stout drinker, so when I do drink a stout, I’m doing it more for the sake of seeing if my taste has changed than I am just to pour a beer into my mouth. That said, I didn’t like this beer very much and thought it was too strong/bitter, but don’t take my word as gospel regarding anything stout-related. Don’t do it! Stop reading this!

Bottle trade from SJ. Ehh it was just ok for me. This body, some cocoa, moleasses and roasted notes.

mstrcrwly (1000) - New York, USA - MAR 31, 2015

DocLock (11191) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle from State Line. Deep brown pour with tan head. Roasty dark malt in the nose some molasses, cacao, same in the flavor, vanilla, oats, cacao, not very complex, somewhat watery.

slowrunner77 (13231) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Malty in the chocolate malt balls kind of way, like Whoppers candy. A little thin and one dimensional, but a pleasant enough stout that goes down easy
