Nitro @ CCB provided by one of the brewers.
Near black pour with lots of creamy head. Smells great - roasted malt and coffee. Wonderfully dry and easy drinking. Roast is the star of the show with some chocolate notes.

Draft at Sybarite Pig. Happy St. Patrick’s Day. Pours a very dark color and mine was on nitro. American pint glass. Thick nitro head and great lace. Aroma of roasted malts and hint of chocolate. Taste is mild like old style porters and the roasted flavor is heavy. Chocolate is very mild but prevalent. Not my favorite from CCB but a decent beer.

opaque black, lasting dense tan head, smooth medium body, medium-high co2.
aroma and flavor are dry, charcoal, roast, and slightly ashy. just enough bittering hops to keep it in balance, without giving any notable hop character. it has a wonderful smooth texture, giving it the feel of porter or even some RIS.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this on tap in Cigar City’s newly constructed bar area. Tried on recommendation from some locals that were sitting next to me.
Poured into a pint glass.
Pours a nice dark brown with a slight tan, tight head.
Smells of coffe and dark roasted malts.
The taste is great! It’s tough to describe but "tight" come to mind, probably the dryness of it. Also get notes of coffee with a slight smooth hop flavor.
Mouthfeel is light to medium.
Chalkboard said this was 5.2% abv which was perfect. Love this beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Love this stout. Aroma is slight roast, coffee, hops, and some chocolate. Poured pitch black with a tan colored head. Awesome. Taste is out of this world. Super creamy and smooth as hell. Probably the best thing about this beer. Tasted like chocolate and caramel mixed with some slight roasted in there as well. One of those rare stouts that can be drunken glass after glass.

Nitro at TPA. Creamy beige head, very dark brown beer. Aroma is earthy, chocolate, crushed leaves. Creamy and supple. Flavor is mild and clean. Chocolate, lots of earthy tones, light bitter roast on the end with a hint of coffee grounds. A delightful glass of beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewery. This one pours a deep black color with some mahogany at the edges and topped by a small, foamy khaki colored head that leaves nice spots of lace on the glass. The aroma is nice and roasty with bitter chocolate, roasted barley, and dark roasted coffee. There is also some earthy hops on the back end as well. The flavor follows and shows more of the bitter, dark cocoa malts, roasted barley, and darkly roasted coffee. There is some milk chocolate sweetness to balance all the dry, roasty flavors. Some earthy hops add some nice bitterness on the back end. Medium bodied with ample carbonation that leads to a roasty and dry finish. This is a really nice session stout with good flavor.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On nitro tap at CCB - it looked just like a Guinness but the body was a little more bubbly. The aroma is fantastic and almost earthy; dry leaves and cocoa but very light. This beer goes down smooth and rich with a very dry body. Cocoa at the end is bitter, light and refreshing sip after sip.
