Nitro draft pour at the brewery. Thick cream head with a rich chocolate aroma. Roasted coffee beans with a hint of vanilla cream. Roasted coffee and caramel finish. Very flavorful. Solid, very drinkable stout. Great job on this one.

Prufrockstar (957) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Draft at Black Raven, on nitro. Aroma: Chocolate, caramel, roast coffee - smells delicious.

Appearance: Opaque dark brown, khaki foamy head.

Taste: Moderately sweet. Roast coffee in finish, but initial taste is surprisingly mild / weak.

Palate: Oily/ slick; light body; goes down like water (wonder how this would be not on nitro).

Overall: Solid stout, albeit a little thin/watery in texture. 6-packs please :) [this could be my Guinness replacement].

Dogbrick (8139) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 8, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. Black pour with a medium thin and creamy light beige head that diminishes steadily to a film. Slippery patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of coffee and malt. Light body with a sweet roasty character and notes of mild coffee and chocolate malt. The finish is short and sweet with a chocolate aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

this was a nice tasty stout. I think I need to give it a round 2 though because I started this glass after some food.

Pours a very dark brown with light foam. Feels thin, but has plenty of flavor and is solid stout.
