Growler. Dark brown pour, nice medium carbonation and an aroma of peat. Flavor is initially a little chocolate, roasty malts, oaky and finished a very dry and a little smoky. Pretty solid beer, would definitely search this out if remotely interested.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
draft @ RedLight. I ordered a pint for St. Paddy’s day...what a treat! This beer has a roasty dark chocolate aroma and a brown-black appearance with small off-white head. Despite the heavy appearance, the body is rather light, delivering a creamy, dry, roasted-malt taste with hints of dark chocolate and to a lesser extent coffee and nuts. Finishes clean and refreshing for such a dark beer... no cloying malt sweetness here. Very drinkable...if I didn’t have to work early the next day I would love to tip back 2 or 3 more pints.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler from Cigar City. Pretty solid and an excellent choice for St. Patty’s Day. Pours very dark brown, looks black in the glass with some amber sneaking through. The aroma shows oats, coffee, chocolate and some vanilla. The flavor is all of the same, nothing more, nothing less, no surprises. A light roasty and slightly creamy palate. Comes across as a bit light but also probably the lowest abv beer so far I’ve had from CCB and still quite good.

draft at redlight redlight. pours a cloudy opaque dark brown. billowy tan head. nice sticky legs. Good nose. very nutty, with notes of coffee and irish cream. flavor is pretty sweet with the irish cream coming forward. solid bitterness from the roasted malts comes through in the finish. good creamy mouthfeel. sweet for a dry stout but a very enjoyable beer.

draft @ redlight redlight. Nice and roasty on the nose with hints of bitter chocolate and a nice nuttiness. Pours a really dark brown almost black, muddy, with a solid off white head. Smooth easy drinking stout, nutty roasted notes, bitter chocolate, hints of vanilla in the finish. Finishes dry. Very nice session beer!

Nearly black. Tan head. Smooth roasted malt and chocolate aroma with some prune notes. Flavor is dry but so damn smooth and delicious. Roasted malt, dry chocolate flavor. What a finish. Wow for a dry stout...this is bad ass.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Flat black color- aroma is an amazingly strong potent roasted malt. Very sweet and enticing. Flavor is also loaded with great full roasted malt, but oh so smooth. You could easily drink this by the gallon. Thin whispy body, like a cappucino. Growler filled at BX Beer Depot.

Draft. Medium tan head atop black body. Aroma is medium sweet, chocolate, some roast, light burnt. Taste is moderately sweet, roast, some coffee, earthy. Medium body. Very nice dry stout -- really bummed I didn’t spot the pun in the name until someone said it aloud.
