Had two bottles with the old man on Christmas and i was pleasantly surprised. Had a very good chocolatey type stout flavor without being overly boozy or having too much of that roasty burnt flavor some craft stouts have. Was a good beer to sip on but went down easy enough that you coukd drink it quick if you wanted to. Big fan of the brewery and this beer; had it during xmas brunch and went well with the food.

This beer pours clear, reddish black with an average head. the aroma offers lots of chocolate, as well as prune, fruity coffee - overall the aroma is very fruity and soft. The flavor is oozing with semi-sweet chocolate, fig, prune, walnut, and some vague roastiness and the end. There are also floral notes at the finish. The mouthfeel is fairly full bodied, and creamy, with semi sharp carbonation. Overall this is a fantastic stout - complex and never harsh, and at an unbeatable price. This is a classic.

This beer poured into a snifter is a really dark almost black color, there was no head to speak of. This is a very rich sipping beer, there a coffee and chocolate notes, malty with very little hop presence. The lacing was very minimal. Overall a very well rounded beer.

I love the name and I love the beer, this is what these guys do best, the big dark beers. Real pretty one, with an airy light but real dark brown head on it and a shiny dark chocolate base with decent viscosity and a real smoothness. The aroma is espresso and dark roasted barley, hints of bitter cocoa and tobacco fruitiness in there as well, but this is really intense on the dark side of things. Coffee notes in the flavor for sure too, more chocolate malt than I could smell, and a complimentary milk chocolate sweetness to go with it. Definitely abut more sweetness from the middle through the finish than expected, but with the dark grains and the hint if smoke, it only balances and not overtakes it. Long lasting finish with a slight raisin character. Bitter still. Nice lush full body here, just enough carbonation to keep it from sticking to my teeth, and overall a splendid complexity in a beer I would be more than happy to drink from a pint glass. Uncommon and delicious, these dark ales are where central waters is at their best!

Had this on a recent trip back to my hometown in South Eastern WI. First time trying anything from Central Waters and found this in a 4 style mixed box. Scores are fairly self explanatory, but I will say the whole box was a pleasant surprise - not a single beer rated only average, everything was around 4.

One thing I'd mention & why I didn't do a full write-up is, I drank this very cold, next time I'd like to let it rise in temp a bit and see if the smell & flavors come out more.
