  • Pours a dark brown, almost black. A nice tan fluffy root beer style head. Lots of sticky foamy lacing.

    Aroma is strong. I am getting burn malts, coffee, molasses. Semi-sweet.

    Taste is strong chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Very well balanced and enjoyable. The name is very fitting. It is robust......lots of big flavor here. A slight bitterness on the backend.

    Medium body with medium carbonation. Creamy smooth mouth feel.

    Overall, I really enjoyed this beer. It reminded me of a stout in ways and was an easy drinking beer even with all the big flavor. Great beer with lots of big character! Try one, or two!
