Black pour with tan head and lace. Light coffee aroma and toasted maltiness a hint of hops as well. Nice burnt coffee and a medium bitter followed by good carbonation and med/full palate make this a real good beer for me.

Draught at the brewpub in Chapel Hill. Black with thin brown head. Coffee and chocolate aroma and flavor. Slightly sweet. Modertaely carbonated. Wish they would nitrogenate it.

Draft at the brewpub: poured black with a thick brown head. Coffee and chocolate and roasted malt aroma. Chocolatey flavor with a nice touch of coffee. Full bodied with a light walnut finish. Good.

OldGrowth (2905) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - APR 9, 2007
Pint@ brewpub. Good aroma. Very dry viney chocolately. Blackish brown color, small head, that lasted a bit. Good lace. Bitter flavor. Again a grapey, vineous,chocolately. Medium body, smooth watery mouthfeel, bitter fruity finish. Nice easy to drink stout. Could sip all day. Really was liking the grape I was getting as it warmed.

The one looked good and smelled good. But then dissapointed a bit with the mouthfeel (a bit weak and watery). Same earthiness/peatiness that I have noticed in other brews by this brewery. still overall a pretty good dry stout.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 3, 2006
On tap. Black pour with a thick, foamy brown head. Aroma and flavors are fat roasted malt, with faint notes of bitter chocolate. I thought it was pretty plain - probably what Beamish would taste like without the nitro.

rman18 (312) - Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - APR 6, 2008
Very stouty with caramel malts... Full flavored with a rich creamy palate. The appearance is dark brown with a very small head that does not last long. Decent aroma. Not a great beer but good for a local place.

Drake (10406) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Keg at the brewpub. Clear dark red, large creamy tan head. Good retention. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, ashy notes, coffee. The taste is chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruits, mild coffee and caramel. Thin-medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness, high carbonation.

emacgee (4356) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - APR 19, 2008
At the brewery. Dark brown/black pour with a thin tan head. The aroma is light chocolate, grainy, coffee. Subdued nose and flavor. grainy, weird upfront taste, a little bitter, chocolatey. Mediocre palate. Maybe i’ll try it again.

magsinva (956) - Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Tap at the brewery - pours cola with a tan head. Aroma is roasty and woody. Taste is dry sweetness, finishes dry. Overall, solid, but a bit boring.
