Black with minim gray white head. Light roast nose, with a touch of baking chocolate. The bitter roast is perfect in this, exactly what I want in a stout. Light caramel notes with the slight smokey chocolate.

Tap at the brewery. Pours black with a small, fizzy beige head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is roast malt, earthy spicy hops. Flavor is dark roast malt, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Another awesome coffee stout. Super black coffee flavored with a nice bitter finish pours black with a thin tan head. Smells like black coffee. Had at sheffields.

Pours black with a big tan head from tap. Aroma isn?t super strong. Burnt roasty. Doesn?t hit me as chocolate or coffee specifically. Taste is quite bitter at first but fades to a bitter chocolate towards the end. Really thin body and pretty bubbly. Atypical for sure. Not really my thing.

rake from last night enjoyed watching GOT. Pours the part with an ample khaki head that reduces to a light lacing cap that leaves a large trail. roasted malt nose. strong espresso taste, slightly bitter and astringent. Its pretty much perfect for a stout. Light to medium body with a lingering finish.

Tap at Apex, post CBC. Oh, Captain, my captain.
A: Pitch black with a cappuccino head. Some lacing.
N: Coffee, cocoa, roast, oats, hint of vanilla, dirt and pine.
T: Sweet, lightly bitter, and oaty.
M: Creamy, medium body with carbonation to match and no alcohol burn.
O: Thick, creamy oatmeal stout. Doesn’t have the minerality of Sam’s Smith, and for that, I appreciate it more.

I like stouts... Wait no I like porters. Maybe I like both. I don’t know... But I digress, this is a stout. A perfect representation of a no frills roasty, chocolatey, stouty stout.

Draft at Hopcat GR - pours solid black with thin off white head . Nice chocolate and smoked malt aroma . Nice smooth mouthfeel . Mildly sweet finish balanced by some roast character . Really good .
