On tap. Black in color with small beige head. Roasty aroma. Sweet roasty flavor with creamy texture and full body. Smooth and delicious.

Draft. Black with a creamy tan head. Aroma is sourdough, molasses, dry brownies, a little light roast coffee. Solid nose. Flavor is very light, again with the toasted sourdough and chocolate crumbles before an incredibly dry finish. The very subtle flavor isn’t helped by a slick, watery body, which I found a little odd for a nitro stout.

** Servie au nitro ** Une tête de mousse très crémeuse et persistante se dresse sur une bière d’un noir sans équivoque. Il est assez difficile de déceler quoi que ce soit au nez, étrangement, même en y plongeant le pif. Je finis par renifler quelques traces chocolatées et de café. Grâce au service au nitro, la bière est évidemment ultra nuageuse en bouche et les saveurs de chocolat et grain rôti sont bien propagées. La finale est plutôt sèche, ce qui contribue grandement à sa buvabilité. Simple, mais très efficace.

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - APR 2, 2010
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!

Poured from a fliptop bottle. Very high notes of coffee. Taste was bitter up front but clean and dry on the finish.

ExpendableHero (846) - Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2011
Solid brew. Pours black with a brown, frothy head. Aromas of coffee, dark chocolate, and caramel. Tastes of dark, bitter chocolate, rich black coffee, licorice, and some caramel. A bit smoky, and chalky. Dry, pleasant finish. Tastes like a super Guinness, and that is a very good thing. Delicious beer.

Deep brown color with a medium tan head. Aroma of malt and some roast, but not much. Roasted malt taste, similar to a Guinness but tastes fresher and less blunt. A touch of bitterness in the finish. Not complicated, but really well done. On tap at Broken Barrel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at RNH. Aroma is lots of roasted malt, a bit of smoke. Dry and roasty, bitter chocolate, a bit of caramel, finishes smoky. A very solid dry stout.

Tap @ CCB. A black beer with a dense brown head. Nose is loaded with roasty malt notes with lesser notes of coffee and a slight hint of smoke. Medium body with a creamy, soft mouth feel and ample carbonation. Wow, this beer is much better than I expected. The first thing that hit me in the flavor was fresh roasted coffee notes followed by dark malt, and touches of chocolate, caramel, and molasses. This is another great CCB stout.
