3.15/5  rDev -21.6%

22 OZ bottle with no date.

A- Poured into a pint glass leaving a one inch tan head that disappeared quickly. This stuff is like a black hole in a glass, totally opaque and almost pure black.

S-Malty, burnt toast and coffee.

T- Taste is one dimensional, some bittter roasted malt up front, and then more burnt tasting bitterness at the finish and maybe some licorice.

M- Mouthfeel doesn't match the pour which was thick looking and viscous; a bit thin for something called extra stout. It leaves a bitter chalky sensation at the end that lingers.

Nothing off about this beer, it is a vision of stout that seems focused on bitterness and color.

Poured in a goblet and developed a one half inch head, good lacing all around the glass. Roasted coffee and chocolate hit my nose; the taste is as if I am drinking strong unsweetened coffee with chocolate added. I like it, it leaves a bitter after taste that some might dislike. HOG

Bomber into a snifter. The brew appears black in color with a finger of creamy brown head sitting atop. As the cap slowly fades, it leaves a wall of lacing effect sticking to the glassware. A light swirl revives the brown froth atop the brew. When held to the light, some faint brown clarity is noted around the edges.

The smell of this offering is roasty with burnt grain indications that give off a scent of black licorice. More smells reveal a touch of dark coffee and chocolate with a bit of a citrus element to the backend of the nose. As the brew warms up, a bit of dark fruity sweetness and alcohol are noticed.

The taste is bitter and roasty from the level of char to the grain. It imparts a almost char flavor across the tongue reminiscent of high % bitter cacao. Some earthy roast elements mingle with a bit of citrus hops and fruity alcohol notes towards the back. At times a light grain flavor is noted outside of the expected burnt flavoring which adds a subtle change of pace. The aftertaste includes a bit of tobacco, leather and anise.

This is a medium bodied brew with a moderate amount of carbonation. Overall a solid package that is worth the price of admission. I think I picked this up for something like 5 bucks while traveling (something pretty much unheard of in PA.) I would get this again if the opportunity presented itself. It is a solid take on the style.
