Pours a rich creamy black/ruby tone.
Head is rich, thick, and really a good looking American stout.
Smells of cocoa, oats, coffee, roasted black barley, musty earthy notes. Bitter cocoa, touch of grassiness from the hops. Finishes with mocha espresso, good dosage of dark roast coffee, and rolled oat. Some pepper is in there as well.
Flavor is really smooth.Really good in fact. Chocolate, coffee, cream, pepper, hazelnuts, toffee, nice bite of oat bitterness and yeast pepper to clean up the finish.
Mouthfeel is smooth, medium rich. It allows the flavors to really come out and showcase their individual characteristics.
Good stout, too bad only made once.

It poured a very dark black for a non imperial, nice finger and half of mocah head, really good looking stout here.

Smell is roasty malts, bitter sweet chocolate, slight nut smell?

Ok taste is very unique for a stout, HUGE bakers chocolate, basically like eating semi sweet baking chocolate chips, huge roasty charachter. and a bitter coffee does show its face a little in the finish,

Mouthfeel is medium light and does not really match the flavor which to me is world class, I wish they would have added a little more bulk and silkyness to the body, but it will certainly not keep me from enjoying this beer

I grabbed this one as a single on a whim.... Shared that single with a couple of people at the local bottle shop and I am sure glad I did because that prompted me to get the 6 pack which I now have two more glorious bottles to drink....

Great American stout that I am sure many have not heard of or seen as I live an hour and half from where it is produced and came into contact with it by accident. GOOD STUFF!

Bottle I forgot about in the move. Not sure how old it is, but it is really nice.

This beer has a 1/2 inch dense khaki head with really nice lacing a great retention. Aroma is nutty with some light cocoa. A touch of off-putting minerally almost metallic aroma comes through, but it is a background note and does not ruin the beer. Flavor is quite roasty and lightly chocolately. Nutty. More like a dark intense brown ale than a stout if that makes any sense. Nice though. Could use a bit more body and creaminess.

Poured from a bottle into a tumbler glass

A- Pours black with a thin, but persistent, head. Good lacing on the side of the glass.

S- Chocolatey, and a few coffee notes.

T- Strong chocolate flavors, fairly creamy, with some notes of coffee, cream, and roasted malt.

M- Medium bodied, just a bit lighter than the stouts I typically drink.goes down easy.

O- A good beer, was worth trying. The description says they only brewed it once. When did they brew it? How long ago did they stop? 'Cause I just bought this today. Anyway, it's a good example of a stout, with all the flavor profiles I typically look for, but like I said not as heavy as a lot of stouts I have had.

Bottle at the Trail Center on the Gunflint Trail.

A - Poured out an opaque, jet black color with a large, light brown colored bubbly foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of roasted malt and toffee

T - Good roasted malt flavor with toffee and caramel. Some molasses taste and a touch of pine.

M - It was crisp and fairly smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is a nice American Stout with a name the jumps off the menu.

Served this one closer to a cellar temp

Appearance: Pours a deep dark brown, almost black…dark khaki colored head about an inch thick formed and hung around…(4.5/5)

Smell: Deep, dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, oatmeal…some alcohol heat way in the back…it’s nice but light…there could be more…(3.5/5)

Taste: Much like the nose…a well rounded taste, I feel like we made a stop at all the classic stout flavors: deep roasted, chocolate, nut, coffee, cream and oatmeal…I would say the dark roasted malts and coffee are the most lasting flavors…oatmeal lands a bit heavy in the after taste…(4/5)

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied…Tons of carbonation…a very wet feel on my tongue…somewhat dry in the finish…very nice! (4/5)

Overall: This is a really good beer…tons of robust flavor, a very drinkable…it’s really that simple…highly recommended, I’m definitely gonna get this one again…(4/5)

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

Pours pitch black with two fingers of thick mocha foam. Substantial lacing. Aroma is quite roasty, with some grassy hop flavors present as well.

First sip is roasty, thick, viscous, and just the right amount of sweetness. Substantial hop bitterness in the finish.

This is a very nice stout. Great viscosity, sweetness, but with enough bitterness to balance things out. Awesome mouthfeel as well.
