From Farmhouse on tap. Aroma of chocolate. Dark brown/black with off white head. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and caramel tastes. Slight creamy body. Overall, I enjoyed this Kentucky stout and I’m wanting to taste more from this brewery.

Pours a deep burnt umber color with two fingers of gaseous khaki foam. Nose is sweet chocolate syrup with nice underlying roast quality and hints of dark fruit and a touch of anise. Palate follows but has less complexity than the nose had hinted at. Rich smooth chocolate notes mingle with some earthy roast and slight nuances of nuttiness and dark fruit. Not bad but at $13 a bomber I will not be revisiting.

A very nice, complex stout. Pours a brown-black with a brown head. Smells of coffee, lots of chocolate, and some cinnamon. Taste is sweeter then the smell would suggest, very creamy, with a bitter chocolate finish. Had in the bottle.

Bottle. Pours like a stout -- reddish black with a thin but pillowy top. Smells like a stout -- sweet and roasty. Drinks like a stout -- sweet, roasted malt, a bit of milk chocolate, a tinge of cream. Finishes with just a kiss of a nice American ho. (#5614, 8/10/2014)
