Poured like oil from the bottle to the glass, however, remarkably not a cloying stout. Nice and roasty, smokey flavor with a clean dry finish. Not super complex flavors, but that makes it clean and drinkable. Light cocoa, dried fruit, with a tinge of floral hops make this a very drinkable and appreciated stout. Would not hesitate to buy a 6 pack.

Above average twist on an Americanized English Stout. Schmohz does a good job keeping this one consistant between batches. This is one of their mainstays, so you don't have to worry about falling for it and then having it go away. The icing on the cake would be to offer it on Nitro with a creamer faucet. Very drinkale!

$7.99 for a mixed 6'er. No specs on the mfgr website. 6.4% ABV. "Robust","aggressive","huge" as described on the bottle...makes me skeptical already considering the 6.4%, which is quite average for a stout. Bottled conditioned, pours out to a cloudy deep black, forming a modest cocoa colored head with poor retention and nice lacing. Carbonation is mild to moderate. The aroma is quite nice with black molasses, black walnut, vanilla, chocolate, and prunes. The mouthfeel is good...smooth, but with a medium light body. Thankfully no kiwi fruit in this bottle like I have had in the other 3 from this mixed 6'er. The taste is a recap of the aroma...plenty of black patent and roasted barley give a nice burnt marshmallow taste with some french roast coffee in the middle. The finish is chalky, obviously supplemented with minerals, which is fine with me. I prefer this, but some may not. Mild earthy dank basement bitterness, which is cool. Hop level is spot on. There is a slight bit of tartness and astringency to this beer that is somewhat peculiar.

Overall, quite enjoyable. It's not a huge aggressive beer as advertised, but it's tasty and rich and doesn't appear infected like the other beers in this 6'er. I would purchase this one again. It reminds me of Bert Grants Imperial Stout if anyone remembers it...another misleadingly labeled beer.

A - Pours black with a dark red ruby highlights, dark tan to carmel head, about 1 finger.

S - Malt, roast, slight ho aroma.

T - On this, I get a malt forward, followed up with some roasty cinder flavors, then a little hop bitterness.

M - Thick, full, ever so slightl dry, with not a little carbonation.

D - Pretty good. I had a few of these at Thanksgivng, and it was about perfect for this. Cheers.

A- Extremely deep, dark black with a thin brown head that settles to a thin, splotchy covering. Looks great.

S- Caramel, chocolate, coffee, anise, and vanilla. Extremely rich and fragrant for the style.

T- Much more of a roasted aspect than the aroma would lead you to believe, and also no nearly as rich. Unique and smooth.

M- A little thinner than the appearance or aroma lead me to believe. Smooth on the finish though.

D- A very nice take on the style that is smooth and not overly rich. I would get this again.

On tap at Schmohz. Pretty dark brown pour, some whitish head. Quite roasty aroma, malt and coffee mostly. Mouthfeel a tad thin, but ok. Chalky/cocoa powder dryness, mixes well with the roast malt. Some coffee bitter finish. Would not be a problem drinking a few of these.
Good English or Foreign type stout, just don't expect and American Stout and you'll enjoy this fine.

Perhaps their best beer, obtained bottle at Champane's Cellars. Dry, chocolate coffee roast stout. Black, with enormous amount of mocha coloured head. Cocoa aroma, as well as roast and chocolate. Smooth mouthfeel. Similar to Oveltine, if Overltine was a beer. Good drinkability,though dry with sips revealing more sugar sweet and roast bitter.

$5 (?) bottle from Three Blind Mice in Mt. Clemens, Michigan.

Appearance: A nice black color with a slight head on it. Opaque, with sediment stuck to the bottom of the bottle after pouring.

Smell: Roast. Mostly coffee. Maybe some chocolate, but very little. Relatively one-note.

Taste/feel: Surprised at the 77 rating on this site, but I guess it's because it almost just tastes like coffee. A bunch of roast, no noticeable hop presence, maybe a slight hint of chocolate? Reasonably bitter aftertaste. Body isn't too thick, so you could drink a couple of these and be fine.

Not all that interesting, but it tastes pretty nice to me. I'd try it again.

Sample at the Super Terrific Stout Tasting on 02/16/08. Two Stouts whose labels feature an axe being wielded. Cool. This beer is blackish-brown with a medium and foamy light brown head that diminishes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists mainly of coffee along with hints of roasted malt and dark chocolate. Medium, smooth body with a tasty chocolate and coffee character, along with light hops and malt. The finish is mild and roasty with a mocha aftertaste. Better than expected, I would try this again.
