Dogbrick (10014) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. This Stout pours flat black with a medium light beige head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, mild hops and chocolate. Medium, creamy body with flavors of mild coffee, sweet malt and chocolate. The finish is roasty with a chocolate aftertaste. Solid all around.

Sampled from the tap at the brewpub. Pours near black with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has some sweet chocolate with dark grains and light roasted malts. Flavor is similar with milk chocolate and dark grains with a hint of earthy roasted malts in the finish.

Pour on tap at the brewery, thick black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of lactose, chocolate, roast, some coffee tones into a bit of dark fruit, slight earth. Taste is a mix of coffee, lactose, sweet cocoa, roast, some slight earthy tones, finishing fairly sweet, slightly roasted.

Ughsmash (7428) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 21, 2009
On tap at Eccentric Cafe. Poured deep brown with a well-retained cap of off-white head. The aroma picked up sweeter chocolates and milky sugars on a succulent first impression.. touches of coffee and black patent beneath.. just what I needed! The flavor was sweet throughout with chocolate leading.. lactic sugars were laced throughout.. brownie-like finish.. bitterness was light and earthy. Sweet overall on the palate with perfect balance.. medium-bodied.. thankfully a long finish. Excellent stuff!!

Draft to taster. Looks Good; pitch black with thin lacing and little coronation. Smells good too; sweet, creamy, and malty. Tastes pretty good, but not as smooth as it smells. Mouthfeel is average. Good, not great.

TheAlum (6487) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Sampler pour on tap at the brewpub (Kalamazoo, MI). Pours a darker brownish pour, dark near opaque body with some ruby edges and bottom. A frothy offwhite head near tan head sits atop and dies to a decent ring, laces small. Aromas are milk chocolate, lactose sugars, some gentle roast and toast, some caramel, cocoa. Mellow sweetness pervades. Initial is medium bodied, offering toast and sweet lactose sugars up front, healthy milk chocolate influence, with more cocoa, caramel, and toffee. Some sweetened coffee, coffee and cream with a designer addition elements. Pleasant, a bit sweet, with a mellow sweeter gentle roasty finish. Simple yet enjoyable. Flavors are on for what it aspires to be.

nimbleprop (6355) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Sampled at Bells Stout night at Meridian Pint in Washington D.C. Pours an oily, opaque black with a thin, beige head. Nose is sweet, malty, sugary, light bread. Flavor was sweet, sugary, malty, chocolate. The lacto sugars are definitely present. Full bodied, sweet finish. Of all the variations of their stout, this was the most well rounded.
