On tap at the brewery. Pitch black with a smallish white head. Strong hints of chocolate and coffee, with alcohol definitely coming through in the finish. I’d definitely drink it again.

Drake (8560) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - FEB 22, 2012
Draft at the restaurant. Pours a clear very dark brown color with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, nuts, bitter hops. The taste is rich chocolate and cocoa, bitter hops, oats, nuts, faint honey notes. Lingering bitterness, well balanced, average carbonation. Very nice beer.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Growler from Whole Foods, Durham. Yeah, the temp jumped back up and a little chill in the air would make this more appealing, but overall this is a nice, gritty, and robust stout from a solid local brewery. Thick near-black pour, oily body, and a fluffy one-finger head on top. Sticky lacing abides. Nose is char, chocolate, and bitter bean, very appealing. More subdued chocolate in the taste, but not a confection, since the roasted malts close things out proper. Hefty, flavorful, and a well done brew overall.

Pint, at taphouse. Good aroma, roasty, strong on the roast, oat is mild brownish black color, ok head and lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body, creamy thick mouthfeel. Dry finish. Good oaty, bit on roast side of things. Good now that it’s cooler. Little smokey, Ashton taste as it warms.
