Brown with a thin dissipating tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and roasted malts. Taste of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, molasses. Semi-sweet and malty with a dry finish. Quality brew from Tyranena that I hope they put into bottles sometime soon.

(growler from Skyview) Pours black with a tan head. Aroma is lightly burnt popcorn, stale grain, and day old spent coffee grounds along with some soy sauce. Nothing really too pleasant. Taste is chocolate, some coffee, but the best part of the beer is the finish, which has some good roastiness to it that lingers nicely. This tasted a lot like the Chief Blackhawk, but was just a little better.

Pours to a pitch black body with a thin yellow beige head. The flavor has a chocolate malt with a very nice nutty roast. Black malt aroma with a light oatmeal. The palate is slick and roasted. A nice dryness pervades. I was able to drink this beer really quickly.

Many thanks to skyview for sharing. Black head with roasted coffee and faint dark chocolate malts. Massive roasted malt and coffee in the flavor with a light sweet finish. Very nice finish.

Pours a nice somewhat thick black color with a rich and creamy dark tan head. Aroma is of roasted malts with hints of chocolate peeking through. Great roasted malt flavor dominates the palate, with a tiny hint of coffee as well. Very smooth mouthfeel . Great Brew!

UPDATED: APR 11, 2008 [Growler, thanks for sharing this rare beer, Skyview!] 03 vintage as I understand it. As one would expect, this beer pours black with a dark tan head. Aroma is a lot of charred malt, a little chocolate, a hint of hops--mainly charred malt though. The taste is similar with the burnt malt once again dominating the chocolate and very mild hops. As Guerde said at the tasting, the taste is reminiscent of Chief Black Hawk. Medium mouthfeel with a long finish. Overall this was a fairly well done beer, but I really do not care for the type of roasted malt used in it.

Small pour (approximately 3 oz.), on tap at Gitchee Gumee Brewfest in Superior, WI on 4-5-08. This was the first of 12 beers that I rated (out of about 20 total beers that I tried). This one didnt even make the program, but Im glad that it made an appearance. I think I was the first person at the festival to try it. Pours a very dark brown (some might even call it "pretty damn black") with a large amount of tan head. Produces surprisingly good lacing in my small plastic cup. Nice, roasted malt aroma. Dry, roasted coffee taste. Lemon flavor present. Medium body. Smooth and lively in the palate. This was a good beer with which to kick off the festival.

2003 Vintage: Many thanks to Skyview for hauling this gem back for us! Growler. Black color with a thin head. Good aroma of heavily roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Holy crap... the roasted malts absolutely dominate the flavor. Coffee and a bit of lactose sweetness, but overall this is like chewing on a spoonful of roasted barley. Yum.

[growler] Thanks to Skyview for sharing this. Best balanced coffee stout Ive had so far and not as thin mouthfeel. Obviously coffee, caramel, some hops, and cannabis. This is a fantastic beer.
