COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed to a smooth, chocolatey, semi-roasted ale that bridges the islands of porter and stout. And if you aren’t a fan of bridges, there’s always the canoe.

Tap at Happy Gnome. Reddish black with no head or lacing. Smoked malts, coffee, black tea, and dried leaves. Taste is mostly dry with a smokiness that lingers. Watery feel with light carbonation.

can thanks to CLevar. Aroma of dark, rich chocolate and coffee. Behind that there is some cocoa powder and biscuit, bready character. Pours pitch black into a snifter with a light brown head that laces well. Taste is initially a little roasty, almost burnt, and dark bitter coffee. Flavor leans a lot more toward a stout than the nose would indicate. Fairly drying finish. overall a very nice stout.

Atom (1357) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2014
On tap at Grumpy’s NE pours a dark brown/black with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, slight piney bitter hops with a slick palate. I’d say this swings more to the side of decent porter.

Poured from a can into english pint glass. Medium tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee and hints of pine and grass. I really like this beer even though it is a bit thinner than most stouts.

Pour on tap at Town Hall tap, dark brownish black pour with off white lacing head, aroma brought notes of dark cocoa, roast, some caramel, grass, pine, hints of orange peel. Taste its a mix of dark chocolate, orange, pine into some spice, slight roast, coffee, finishing bitter, dry. Pretty nice.

Pretty good version of a stout. Pours a dark black with smallish head. Aroma is full of roasted malt. Flavor is a pretty balanced combination of roast coffee and grain, with a lot of malt sweetness. Semi-bitter finish.
