COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Velvety black and perfectly opaque, this surprisingly smooth, drinkable beer is a delightful harmony of smoky roasted flavors and tangy, coffee-like notes. Available only on tap at fine establishments throughout our distribution region.

This is a great stout so its a shame its so difficult to come by these days. My understanding is that its on tap a few places in KC, but otherwise its tough. Dry, black as night, with a very easily drinkable character.

Caytinator (948) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - OCT 27, 2012
On tap. Black color, creamy stable head, good lacing. It’s got a slightly more complex taste than similar style stouts (Guinness) - coffee. Light body, really easy to drink. B-Vard keeps cranking out winners.

Slight sweet not that great. Dry for a stout pretty enjoyable mold to enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (6800) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 20, 2012
On tap @ TapHouse in Seattle, nitro. Handsome dark brown with a dense creamy nitro head that is a permanent fixture. Nearly no aroma (thanks nitro). Simple, lightly roasty profile, thin mouthfeel. Just okay for me-- too cold, too thin.

RobertDale (3477) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - AUG 24, 2012
On tap. Comes dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Taste is similar. Rich and creamy. Decent enough.

Travlr (11981) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Sample from draft, courtesy of staff at Sickie’s, thanks! Dark brown, looks like a Guinness. Aroma of milk chocolate. Taste is caffe au lait. Nice.

JoeinDahlem (1328) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2012
Strikes the sought-after balance between roasty depth and refreshment value. Black and austere yet quenching. First impression is "Hmm, a bit light," and then you’ve drunk four of them. Nitro tap predictably emphasizes the light and creamy, not unpleasantly.

high_on_hops (625) - Burlingame, California, USA - APR 18, 2012
On tap. A great nitro tap and a foamy tan head. The aroma and taste feature plenty of toasted malt and the aftertaste has some slight chocolate and coffee flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
