Growler. Huge thanks to Hopscotch for this! Pours pitch black with a big foreverlasting tan head. Wow! The aroma is espresso coffee, hard roasted malt, chocolate, dried fruit and hops. Lovely. The flavour is lots of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and hops. Some milky notes in the finish. Very nice!!!

Tap at CCB, courtesy of SeaBass. Nearly black, large head. Aroma has chocolate and nutmeg. Taste is very Guinness-like, but better, dry, dark and complex. Nice one.

Gallon growler courtesy of Atlaggie. Crap thatís a lot of beer. Please keep your growlerís to the 1/2 gallon size or smaller next time. Deliciously well made classic dry stout. The finish is crisp and clean. Aroma of melty chocolate. Flavor of roasted malt and cocoa texture. Pretty ridiculous and true to style.

32oz growler pours a watery, opaque black with very little spitty white head. Nice sweet aroma, coffee, nuts, oats. Flavor is sweet, nutty with toasted breads. Watery finish. This was good, certainly enjoyable, but WAY over hyped. Iíd order this at a bar, I wish I could make this, but this isnít a revelation by any stretch.

On tap at Funky Buddha. Iím not the biggest fan of dry stouts but this has a lot of character. The aroma has chocolate notes with a little bit of coffee grind in there. Dry but very smooth.
