16 oz. glass at the brewpub. My favorite of their current selection. So black! A nice dark tan head faded in a couple of minutes. A delicious aroma. Chocolate, fudge, cream. Flavor is full of chocolate and coffee. Anise tart and bitter hops, and dark fruit. Quite tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is dark brown, nearly black with a medium light brown head that diminishes steadily. Patches of lacing. Roasty aroma of malt and coffee. Medium, smooth body with a roasty coffee character, and flavors of burnt malt and hops. The finish is a little on the thin side and consists of coffee and mild hops that lingers for a bit. Above average overall.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It poured a black color with a large tan head. The aroma was a nice mix of chocolate and roasted malt with a little coffee in there. The taste was a little less intense. There was a lot of decent roasted malt with some chocolate milk and coffee but its a bit watery. A very good Stout.

It poured a dark color with a small off-white head. The aroma was of maple syrup, maple smoke and some mocha. The taste was like the aroma. A very good Stout.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted at the 2012 St. Louis Centennial Beer Festival from tap into sampler glass. The recent 1st place winner at the Great American Beer Festival for Dry Stout, same category as Guinness! Obviously an excellent, true-to-style stout. Dry, dark, roasty, hints of chocolate, coffee, dark fruit. Nothing imperial strength or crazy about it, but very smooth and enjoyable. Highly recommended.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft pint at The Stable. Pours a dark, semi-opaque chocolate brown color with a small, creamy beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, powdery milk chocolate, light coffee roast, cream, toasted brown sugar, and maple syrup. Flavor of roasted malts, dry cereal grains, chocolate, light coffee, cream, toasted sugar, a hint of maple syrup, and earth. Dry, roasty finish. Medium-bodied, with average carbonation and a dry, roasty mouthfeel. This is an absolutely perfect example of the style. I had some mussels with it and the pairing couldn’t have been better. Best Augusta beer I’ve had so far.

Tap at winery. Pour is deep brown/ almost black with a small dark brown head. Aroma is loaded with milk chocolate, roasted malt, light coffee, light brown sugar, and a hint of hops in the background. Flavor is also very rich and full with loads of roasted chocolate malt, light coffee and a silky smooth finish. This was a huge surprise, excellent and so drinkable too. Left a thick dark brown film in the glass. loved it.

On Tap- Was served a black color, with a 1 finger head that faded quickly with some lacing. Roasted malt and hint of sweetness. Roasted malt and dark chocolate with a bitter finish. Medium body,with a creamy texture and went down smooth & easy. Enjoyable brew but could have been a bit more robust. Good for a couple or just relaxing.
