this along with ayinger celebrator dopplebock is the only "roasty" beer that I actually like that I have tried. While I was thinking it would have the stout-y chococlate/mocha/coffee taste, this was a totally "roasty" stout and had a great caramel aroma, but it didnt burn the palate and was approachable. This is one of the few stouts that you could imagine getting a pitcher of...

nearly totally opaque with a hint of red when held to a light. A creamy, off-white head. The mouthfeel on this one is reasonably thick, but not overwhelming for a stout. Sweet smells of chocolate and cappucino. A nice example of stout without anything too obnoxious. Best part about this is its availability. Ive seen it in mom and pop stores in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Never a bad buy.

This one is good. It has all the characteristics that a stout should have. Aroma is floral hops and roasted malt. Nice dark brown almost black color. Flavor is sweet and somewhat bitter with the usual amount of coffee and chocolate flavor. Its a good stout nothing bad to report nothing exciting either.

The bottle poured a deep garnet, almost black liquid covered by an ample frothy white head. The head lasted nicely leaving good lacing on the glass. The aromas were notably of coffee and roasted nuts with notes of sweet dried fruit, caramel and chocolate This is a full bodied and thick with lively carbonation. The flavor starts with bitter chocolate and dried plum, matures to a dry middle and has a long-lasting slightly bitter finish.

Bottled. A black stout with a thin off white head. The aroma has roasted malt notes together with a little licquorice and aniseed. It is also a little milky. The milky sweetness also comes through in the taste. There are pleasant burnt malt tastes too. A nice drinkable stout.

Like the porter but heavier and darker. Actually if I were to compare them blind side by side I might not tell the difference. Its a subtle difference. The stouts almost syrupy, quite thick in mouthfeel, very heavy in all the requisite flavors. If Im in the mood for stouts, this is what I go for.

Just like their porter, this has a great flavor, look, and smell. Just doesnt nail the stout title since its too hoppy. Needs too get a more dense mouthfeel and lose some hop and itll be a damn good stout. Of course its already a pretty tastey beer.
