Nitro draft- This beer had SO much potential. Pours jet black, with an oil thickness, and a solid 1" bright white dense foam head. The smell is slightly sweet and a little tangy. Had in a busy bar setting so may not have had the best opportunity. The taste is where everything went downhill. The overall profile was terribly underwhelming. Subtle chocolate/sweet notes, followed by a sourness that I didn't tend to agree with. If there were any coffee in it I would have had to dig deep for it. I will say this though, it was one of the only beers I've ever had that left about half an inch of head at the bottle on the glass when I was finished. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at brewpub. Poured off of nitro. Creamy smooth stout with notes of chocolate, coffee and nuts.

nitro pour, well, it smells like something on nitro, light cocoa comes through. a nice looking beer. dark in color with the white head playing well against the dark body. the beer version of cookies and cream ice cream and folgers coffee, but watered down so just the astruingent coffee note lingers. but it does have a nice balance between the sugary cream and and bitter coffee with a bit of dry cocoa lingering.

On tap. Pours a black brown color with a large creamy thick beige colored head. Kinda looks like Guinness. Nose is cat shit, star fruit, and hypnotique liquor. Taste is fruity and chocolaty. Thing watery mouthfeel with back end alcohol.

Just ate a deep fried hot dog covered in slop. At Steve’s in the Denver airport B terminal. Soft and smooth with mild bitterness. Lihht roast, some sweetness, sharp dryness hangs around, pretty plain yet very easy to drink. Just happy to have a dark beer.

Another one from the brewery. Pours black as night, with almost no head and some tan lacing around the sides of the glass. This one would go really well on a day that you are out in the backyard grilling. Slightly oily, with a burnt kind of day old coffee taste and very full-bodied. Worth a try.

Had on tap at the brewpub on Blake. Poured a dark black color. I never really got anything which stood out about this beer.Flavor is sweet and it goes down smooth.

thirdeye11 (5911) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 15, 2010
(draught at flying saucer Addison) pours lack with creamy nitrogen head. Nose of cream, cola, light chocolate. Taste of bitter roasted malts, cream, alcohol and semi sweet chocolate. Good but not great.

On tap into a pils glass at the flying saucer in San Antonio. Has that pretty, cascading nitro look. Thick foamy tan head. Dark dark brown, that I couln’t see any light through. Smells of leather. Tasts of coffee, burnt malt, and leather, perhaps unsweetened cocoa. Not as sweet as it should be. There is a tannin bite to it that isn’t particularly pleasant. Ok I gues, but kind of a let down.
