Growler from the brewery. Near black color that pours with a fairly thick tan head. A thin layer of foam sticks around that allows for some scattered lacing. The aroma is initially quite chocolaty. Some coffee roast, ashy notes, and dark fruit eventually join in. The body is slick and creamy, again, showing a healthy dose of milk chocolate flavors to go with a little bitter coffee roast, ash, and oats. No real trace of the dark fruit that was in the aroma. This is a little thinner and lighter than expected. It drinks like it could be a couple ticks lower than 7%. I really don’t have much of a problem with that. Drinkability, as long as flavor isn’t sacrificed, isn’t a bad thing. Considering who brews this, it comes as no surprise that this is a very solid tasting stout.

Growler from the brewery. Pours black with tan head. Aromas of burnt malts and licorice. Burnt malt and bitter chocolate flavors with a hint of licorice and slighylt ashy. Medium to full body with minimal carbonation and a dry finish

On draft at Funky Buddha for Cigar City Tap Takeover. Dark black pour, thick and oily. Aroma was full of chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor was somewhat chalky with hints of dried dark chocolate. A lot of flavor but definitely a one and done type beer.

markwise (4467) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2011
On draft at the brewery. Pours a dark stout black with a tan-ish head. Nose is nice amount of roast with pieces of licorice, earth, unsweetened dark chocolate, and black coffee. Flavor delivers on all of the promises made in the nose: big roast, coffee, cocoa, hints of licorice, and some earth. Smooth in body and finishing with lingering roast and cocoa. For a foreign stout, this one is nice.

Tap. Nice and big notes of chocolate and some alcohol/roast in the background. Poured the usual black color with a creamy tan head with small bubbles. Flavor is all chocolate and roast. Very good and easy to drink. Not too much coffee but I don’t mind that at all. Great stuff.

This one was pretty good. I think it would have benifit from a more developed coffee profile. Got a little thin on the back end. Seems quite a bit smaller than what it is.

Pours black with tan head.. Nose is heavy roast, hints of coffee, cocoa, licorice. Flavor is big roast, dark chocolate, coffee, earthy, thin hints of licorice. Like a big hillsborough river dry stout.
