COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bold and complex from a tremendous amount of roasted malts, yet smooth and rich from the addition of oats. Dissent has its own opinion of what a dark beer should be.

650mL bottle supplied by Stine - many thanks! To long-stemmed white wine glass, it pours a cordovan-tinted dark brown/black combination with which a trim beige head half a finger in length stood. Aromas of almond butter, roasted barley, charcoal, pine needles, aloe, coffee syrup, American yeast, and grilled corn. Tastes the same with the addition of milk chocolate, birch bark, earl grey tea, and stale black licorice candy. Burnt rubber, spent grain, and wet cardboard experienced by swallow. Chewy and interestingly flavorful. My first Steel Toe had been a success.

On tap at the brewery. Pours black with a mocha brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has chalky dark grains with touches of roasted malts and chocolate. Flavor has lots if dark grains and roasted malts with touches of molasses, bitter chocolate and a hint of pine.

Keg @ Happy Gnome. Brown with a small head. Nose of burnt brown sugar, cream, roasted nuts. Ash. Nice and full. Taste is wonderfully creamy, substantial. Lactose, rocky road fudge. Slightly peppery hops. Some burnt espresso. Medium body, supple and a bit oily. Wow. Credit where it’s due. Very nice.

Bomber from Four Firkins. Pours black with an tan head. Aroma has molasses, chocolate and caramel. Taste is of sweet caramel, bittersweet bakers chocolate, some roast and a nice blend of oatmeal. Medium bodied and smooth, and nicely bitter-sweet. This is a solid effort, where I’ll look for more from that brewery. 14.1

Draft at the brewery. The aroma is of coffee and dark roast. Of course, this is a dark-colored beer. This all carries to the drink. Pure coffee, mostly, and quite yummy. Pass the sugar. (#5657, 8/28/2014)

MacBoost (1988) - Victor, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Saturday night stout! Pour is almost black, with a scant tan head that’s gone in a flash. Aromas of coffee, roast, chocolate, floral hops. Taste is bitter and off dry. Flavors of dark dry chocolate, lightly roasted coffee, some bittering hops. Slightly silky. This is pretty nice. A large sized dry chocolate note. Slight tinge of alcohol. Finished like a silky black dildo, dry with a nice roast. Very decent.

This is a very tasty dark ale. Not as much hops as I would have like but that’s not the style anyways. Very smooth and delicious!

Bottle thanks to Rob. Pours a dark brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is strong roast, coffee bean, oak. Medium mouthfeel with roast, coffee, dark chocolate. Good.

Bottle thanks to Kyle. Pours a black color minimal head. Nose is gritty with some milk sweetness. Taste is similar with a kind dissenting finish.
