From Dec 2007
It pours from 12oz bottle a very dark brown with reddish hues and has a 1 finger head of tannish foam with some lacing.
The smell is of roasted malt, some chocolate, and some caramel.
The taste has roasted malt up front followed by notes of chocolate and some citrus. Hmm...I don't think the citrus is a welcome addition for me in this OS. Things were tasting pretty good until that "sourness" from the citrus hit my taste buds. Still, it's not bad. It finishes with a roasted malt bitterness, it has a medium mouthfeel, and the carbonation is medium. I'm still shaking my head over that weird sourness that *does" mellow down a bit further into the session. JohnGalt1 (1721) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 12, 2016
Draft at the taproom... thin black brew with no real head retention.. Ashy dark malt with no real sweetness and never really comes together... Seems like malt and hops were used to just stain water. jkwalking05 (4745) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 27, 2014

Bottle. Deep brown with copper highlights and an enormous over-inflated finely bubbled head that took five installments to pour. Aroma is sweet roast and light plastic. Over-carbonated palate, thin mouthfeel, roast and plastic again. I hope this is an off bottle, otherwise this is an appalling beer. TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - NOV 2, 2012

Had this a while back at the brewery. Pours a jet black small tan head. Smells sweet malty and of roasted barley. Nice roasty taste as well as some chocolate. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Nice tasting beer, much better than their lighter beers. savnac (2656) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 6, 2012
12oz bottle. Dark brown with a creamy light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee and some lactose. Flavor is semi-sweet chocolate, light bitter roast and a sugary sweetness. Medium to full body with a creamy mouth feel. Pretty good stout, rich and malty just a touch on the sweet side. Aml42000 (625) - Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Nothing going on here. Medium bodied stout which doesn’t really offer anything interesting. Roasted aromatics, slightly creamy body. A bit too thin for me.
