Tap. Pours deep, dark brown with average, creamy beige head; good retention and spare lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, figs, earthy hops, and light smoke. Flavor is roast malt forward with some supporting dark fruit esters and hops; creamy taste with a dry finish. Medium body, low carbonation, and low warmth.

Draft. Heavy coffee aroma, bllck, tan faomy head. Said to be nitro but seemed standard. Medium body, slight bitterness. Strong coffee stout a little heavy on the carbonation.

Off my few beers at this place, this was my favorite. Finally a bit of aroma. Roasted malt and chocolate. Pours a nice almost black with a very creamy lasting head. The flavor is similar with a nice vanilla highlight. A bit on the thin side but pretty good.

Cola and chocolate, light roast, very dry. Solid effort that worked extremely well on cask, highly drinkable. Brewer’s Alley’s beers were a pleasant surprise at the DuClaw cask fest.

Opaque dark brown pour with a thin light tan head. Roast coffe aroma. bitter roasted flavor with cream. A little watery but a decent stout.

nuplastikk (4351) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 24, 2009
Draft at the brewery. Opaque black-brown with a patchy white head. Smooth roasty chocolate aroma. An easy drinking stout, presumably nitro-poured. Light and watery in some respects, but mossy, smooth, and impressively flavorful. Hits the spot.

Tap (cask conditioned)@Brewer’s Alley in Frederick, MD->mini pilsner glass. Pours a lasting, creamy head that exhibits spare lacing atop a black body. Smokey malt aroma. Medium body, dry and chalky taste. I enjoyed this beer considerably.

Had on cask at the brewpub, served at about room temperature. The beer had a big spicy and roasty aroma of chocolate, coffee, and caramel malt, a bit of grainy and earthy hops too. It was a dark brown-black color with a creamy, dark tan head that had fairly good retention and size. The flavor was pretty sweet, slightly spicy and lively, and the chocolate and coffee tastes were detectable. It had a very creamy palate, and was very wet and full, with a lower amount of carbonation. It’s a good beer, I think if it was chilled a little more it would help with this beer, but it did have a lot of character.

Cask at the brewpub. Actually this is very comparable to their oatmeal stout, I guess they do stout well... lots of roast, some liquid smoke in the nose, some charred grains as it warms... flavor is quite good, palate is slick and moderately carbed, doesnt exactly feel like cask... full of roast and smoke and charred grains, but without the oatmeal and milk flavors of their other stout. Solid enough.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2007
Cask, at the brewpub, July 2006. Deep tawny brown colour - not opaque. Fairly dry and quite roasty. A little powdery chocolate. Mouthfeel is fairly light. Rather English in style although that could have been more down to the cask dispense. Solid but unspectacular.
