Dark beer flavors with a smooth finish. Maybe a little watery. Not as strong on the palate as other dark beers Ryborne (53) - - JAN 21, 2013
Dark and malty with very little aftertaste, will have to try other steel toe after this

UPDATED: APR 5, 2013 There are many stouts I would pick over this one, although many I wouldn’t. I wish it were maybe a little more boozy/thick when drinking it. Overall flavor is pleasant with chocolate notes.

Pours a dark, oily black with small head. Strong aroma of roasted (almost burnt) grain. Flavors include chocolate and coffee, some licorice and roast grain, with an underlying boozy-alcohol flavor. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side for a stout. Could use a bit of reworking. mnmike (1086) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Sample at the brewery after a tour. Expected dark color. Head is browner than expected. Great roasty coffee taste that is very pure. steeleliver (130) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2012
On tap from Republic, MN. Pours rich dark brown with short mocha colored head, less than half a finger. Opaque red around the corners of the glass. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, and oats. A bit on the sweeter side. An excellent palate, very smooth and a bit oily. Warms up the soul on a cold winter day. alexsdad06 (10262) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2012
22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine. Pours black with a medium sized khaki colored head. The aroma is roasted malts, chocolate with a hint of oatmeal sweetness. The flavor is roasted malts, chocolate, very mild dark fruits with more mild oatmeal sweetness. Pretty decent straight forward stout. shrubber85 (11322) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle. Lactic chocolate malt aroma. Black with small head. Light ashy dark chocolate malt flavor with a lightly bitter herbal hops finish. Very tasty.
