I had this at Ballast Point in Little Italy.
The beer is dark brown, nearing black, with a thin beige collar. Aromas of chocolate, dark malt, grains, bread. Some dark fruit and raisin notes in the flavor. Really smooth on the palate due to the serving medium. Well balanced and easy to drink. Good stuff.

I do enjoy a fine dry stout and this one’s a class act. Perfect in terms of appearance: pitch black with deep ruby red highlights, and a super thick cappuccino-like head. Nutty, sweet, burnt toast aroma. Flavors were similar, lots of nutty sweet malts and burnt toast, along with a slight smokiness. I wanted a bit more punch from the flavor department. Mouthfeel was light and easy, don’t want to quite say ’thin’. Had this one on nitro at the brewery (5%abv).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nitro at tylers Carrboro. Black with a big ol’ thick and marshmallowy yellow tan head as typical of a good nitro pour. I rarely drink nitros and forget how aesthetically pleasing these beers are. Though the nitro pours do make it more difficult to ascertain aroma and flavor. Aroma is light, some metallic roast, marshmallow, oatmeal. No coffee noted. Flavor is meh. A little disappointing for this brewery.
