On draft @ the brewpub. Listed on the big board at 4%. Pours an opaque dark brown with a frothy off-white head. Not too much of a scent, slight roasted coffee. Good amount of taste for the low alcohol content, coffee and chocolate, very dry. A very drinkable session stout.

Draft pour at the source. Pours a darker brown with a beige head of foam. The aroma has mild roast and nuts. Taste is pretty faint, but a little toasty. Light body and moderate carbonation.

Sampler at brewpub. Pours black with a khaki head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Not a ton on the nose. Definitely get some chocolate on the tongue. Not so sure about the oak although it finished pretty clean. Not bad.

Tap @ Bells: Solid, rich brown color, not quite black with a long lasting khaki film & foamy collar topping it off. Light aroma with hints of dry, roasted malts, dried coffee beans, & some unsweetened cocoa powder. Big roasted malt base in the flavor; very dry, hints of ash with lots of dry coffee beans & a mild cacao note to it, too. There’s a very, very faint bit of milkiness the lingers in the finish, otherwise this is a bonafide dry stout all the way. Nice roasted body, dry from front to back. It’s like Guinness Draught Plus.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a pitch black color with a small beige head. A big heavy roast sourness in the nose, chocolate. The flavor is great: dry, earthy, dark chocolate, minerals, heavy roast, bitter dark coffee, some lactose. A bit light.

Draft at Bells. Pours dark chocolate brown with minimal head. Aroma of chocolate. Taste is hints of chocolate, roast malt. All flavors somewhat muted. Could be indicate of a dry stout - a style on which I am not well versed.
