Black Hawk Stout retains the big traditional flavors of an Irish-style stout and yet offers a refreshing dry crispness that is rare in many dark beers. "Bottle Conditioned" Black Hawk Stout is replete with a rich, roasted malt flavor that makes this not-so-heavy stout, creamy and ever so smooth. It has a subtlety that surprises and converts even the most reticent stout drinker.

Most carbonated stout I have ever seen. Good clean crisp cocoa and roasted flavor. Roasted malts really shine through. This beer is near explosive. Do NOT pour it into a glass. It will become 90% head no matter how well you pour. Drink it from the bottle. I learned the hard way. excellent flavor, and oder makes this worth trying.

From Aug 2007 I got this one in a trade with Wasatch. Thanks, John! This pours from 12oz bottle a near pitch black with a small head of foam. A few minutes in and all that's left is a few small islands in the middle and a ring around the glass. Lacing is minimal. The smell is full of sweet malt to my nose. The taste has a lot of caramel malt up front that starts off very sweet but that's offset quickly by some hop bitterness that cuts the level of sweetness pretty well. I also get some good chocolate notes along with some roasted malt and an earthy flavour also shows up. It finishes slightly bitter but at the very end, it comes off on the watery side. It has a good mouthfeel to it for the style and the carbonation is fairly brisk. Pretty good stout in my book.

From old tasting notes. Opaque black brown color topped by a creamy tan head. Rich roasted chocolate malt nose. Dryish, bitter roasted malt flavor has hints of espresso. Big hoppy finish and a long bitter aftertaste.

A thin and dry stout with tame roast and chocolate notes. Subtle piney hops in the finish. Dark brown color with a light tan head. Easy going and a solid crowd pleaser.

Pours black with a khaki head. Roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and toffee aroma and flavors. Medium body and moderate carbonation with a roasty chocolate finish.

jsmerig (1723) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2016
Pours a deep black with a dark tan head. Aroma of earthy smoke and roasted coffee. Taste is mildly sweet with a robust dark flavor giving way to a stiff bitterness in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is roasty chocolate and sweet malt. Appearance is dark brown almost black with big frothy off white head that lingers well. Taste is sweet roasty chocolate malt forward. Hint of bitterness from roast and hops. Light minerally water flavor. Palate is medium. Creaminess coats the tongue nicely. Overall an excellent stout. Not over the top but well brewed with nice flavors. Great definition of the style.

An interesting and well done stout, pours a dark espresso brown with white lacing to contrast, aroma of light roasty malt with bitter cocoa accents. Flavor of smoky roasted malt, some subtle chocolate malt sweetness. Medium-to-light mouthfeel, thin but not watery. Coffee roast and cocoa in the finish. An interesting variety of layered roasty malt flavors present overall, that doesn't overwhelm the palate and indeed finishes on a relatively crisp note. Enjoyable.
