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.

on nitro @ cigar city. Aroma of nice roast vanilla coffee and malt. Pours black with a creamy head (nitro). Taste is ok. Roasty but a little thin after the initial roast. Not the best.

4oz pour @ Cigar City Sample 6of12. As Hillsborough River. Pitch black color with small to average creamy light tan head. Roasted malt and coffee in aroma. Mild coffee, roasted malt and some balancing hoppy dryness in flavour. Smooth.

if you are going to drink a stout, this one is probably the one to do so. the finish is a little dry for my tastes but then again its supposed to be given the style. heavy on the malts, some honey notes, rye cereal-ness and pumpernickel twang. somewhat cocoa powder-y. very good for what it is.

yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - APR 19, 2010
Dark black with brownish highlights. Aroma is sweet, chocolate, roasted malts and toffee with a hint of anise. Flavor is well balanced. Some sweetness and dry roasted coffee and roasted malts. Slightly charred which adds some bitterness. Overall pretty smooth and nice body. Growler and draft.

Draft. Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of espresso, chocolate. Flavor is coffee, roasty, chocolate, very light hops. Very dry almost chalky palate. Still very nice.

Leafs93 (1833) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Pours dark brown with tan head. Aroma was roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Taste was sweet with nice coffee bitters. More creamy then expected for having such light mouthfeel.
