On tap at CCB. It was a hot day and this poured a nice clear deep dark brown with tan frothy head. Aroma was coffee and cream. A bit dry on the palate but still enough sweetness to make it go down well and quick. This was very yummy!

32 oz. mini growler via trade with smith4498 - Pours a dark brown color with a nice size tan head. Very light lacing. Aroma is toasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is lightly roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. Finish is a little thin and dry. A good beer. Thanks Jason.

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 that’s a lot of beer. Please keep your growler’s 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. I’d order this at a bar, I wish I could make this, but this isn’t a revelation by any stretch.
