Schlafly has a lot of styles, but this is the first one from them I’ve really loved. Pours dark and smells sweet and malty, very rich earthy taste and that strange, borderline oily mouthfeel you get from stouts. This is one I could enjoy regularly. SSSteve (4006) - - OCT 3, 2013

A very agreeable stout. Thick and rich with a creamy mouthfeel. Chocolate and coffee with some nice bitterness. keith0718 (434) - Kansas, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Malt character closer to imperial stout, than a dry stout. Great flavor with pronounced tones of chocolate and coffee. Slightly bitter aftertaste. Great beer. Finhead (1847) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2016
A jet black pour with ruby highlights and a thin tan head. The aroma has milk chocolate, raisin, and roasted grain. It has a full body with creamy texture and above-average carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a dry, roasted finish.

Tap/Bottle. This is one of Schlafly’s best! A very thick, full-flavored stout that has deep flavors of sweet, dark chocolate, coffee and malt. Interesting mouthfeel, at times creamy and at times sharp, but always delicious. Nice as an after-dinner beer, as it is very sweet. Strikes me as a nice balance between a dry stout/sweet stout/imperial stout. Trust me, it will make sense if you try it! ChainGangGuy (4941) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Appearance: Pours a dark brown, near black body with a smallish, frothy, off-white head.
Smell: Roasted barley nose with notes of chocolate, cold coffee, and prune liqueur.
Taste: Dark malts tasting of melted dark chocolate and roasty coffee, though not too much roast. Drizzle of thick molasses, a few sprigs of licorice. Lightly fruity. Very slight, passing hop bitterness. Just a little sour near the end. Earthy, chocolatey finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Slight creaminess to the mouthfeel.
Drinkability: Not bad, not bad at all. For me, it’d be a lovely every day kind of stout. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2009
On tap at the Flying Saucer in KC. Pours a black body with a very dense and milkshake thick, dark tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a good amount of thick lacing. Aroma is really interesting, but very nice. Its like a slightly charred marshmallow. Creamy, flaked, slightly roasted barley with a very light coffee note. Good amount of milky chocolate and caramelized malts. A light brown sugar and raisin hint as well. A real nice mixture of sweetness and slightly charred aromas. Flavor is very rich and sweet for the style. Has that Irish Stout taste to it, but with a very enjoyable "richness" to it. Starts with a velvety, rich chocolate and dark malty sweetness, then moves into a slightly pruney and raison middle before a touch of piney hop bites at the tongue followed by a very light breakfast coffee and delicately charred barley that feels like it floats into the mix of flavors. A good amount of toasty caramel malts making it quite sweet, but balancing extremely well with the lingering soft roast taste as well as the nimble bitter hops. Palate is stylistically creamy and smooth, rich, and medium bodied. Overall, I’m delighted with this beer and really diggin’ it more and more. Its loaded with an ample amount of rich flavor for a style that typically bores me. It actually reminds me of a s’more...just missing the graham cracker. Fantastic balance and extremely enjoyable aftertaste. Very well done! Love the richness! SM_Jenkins (48) - Missouri, USA - FEB 4, 2010
sweeter and more chocolaty than I remember; used some to make a delicious beer mustard Stellaaaa (270) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 8, 2010
Pours a dark black with a moderately thin, tobacco coloured head. This beer has an aroma of dark roasted malt without the fainted hint of hops in the aroma. It tastes, likewise, of dark, burnt malt and just enough hop bitterness to even things out. It has a balanced mouthfeel that is neither to thin and watery nor too thick. Overall, a much more versatile stout than many of the ones I’ve had, and this beer is certainly worth it’s mettle.
