UPDATED: JUN 5, 2006 This hit me in the right way. It replaced the Imperial Stout that had been on previously. It was served with a mix of nitro and CO2. More brewpubs need to get away from just nitro. The body was black with a light brown head. The aroma was sweet coffee with some dark chocolate. The taste also had the sweetened coffee and bitter chocolate. There an oaky dry finish with some bitterness. Nice.

Sampled from a growler courtesy of Duane at DL06: Pours an opaque black with a thin-lacing tan head. Nicely roasty dark caramely sweet aroma has some slightly sweet lactose character. First sip is of nicely sweet dark malty flavor and lots of good fresh hoppy balance. Has a lingering earthy, bittersweet character with lots of good dark chocolate presence. A very nice dry stout.

Handbottled: Pours nearly opaque with a lasting creamy tan head and left very good lace upon the pint glass. The aroma has notes of milk chocolate, coffee, walnut, hint of smoke and paper, and just a dash of spice. The taste pretty much follows suit with heavy roasted and sweet malt tones but has a nice addition of smoke and bitterness on the finish. The most impressive thing with this beer is the mouth feel which is fuller than most in the style, creamy and smooth with a light bitter bite. It is quite the lovely drinking stout. When judgement versus the genre it is above average and something I would seek out again.

Jet black with a dark brown head. Aroma: chicory, herbs, and butter. Buttery flavor, with roasted malts taking a back seat. Very creamy and full bodied.

22oz hand bottled by Duane! - Thanks! - Pours black with a nice frothy tan head that stays pretty well. Aromas of dark chocolate, and dry roasted malts. Flavor is roasted malts mostly but a good amount of dark chocolate influence too. A little smoke and a hint of wood there too. Smooth and creamy on the palate with a good dry finish. I thought this was a nice representation of the style and a tasty brew..

Very dark with a dark head. Good malty taste that was creamy to the end. I’m not a big fan of Stout and I enjoyed this one.

growler-DLD06 thanks to Duane for bringing this beer from the Quad Cities! After having the barrel aged dark lord, I was suprised that my palate wasnt a mess. This beer actually held up for what it was. this beer poured almost black with a small fizzy tan head. nice char, fresh cut wood, roast and anise in the nose. Flavors are mostly char and the woodsy notes. Body is full for the style but has the proper amount of carbonation for the style. A pretty good example of this style. I want to go back to Blue Cat sometime soon!
