Super dark brown pour, creamy beige head. Loads of roast, chocolate, oak, whiskey notes, caramel. Sweeter than most dry stouts. I enjoyed this.

Tap at Churchkey. Inkier pour, huge nitro head. Big retention and 360 nitro lace. Nose is muted, detergent, mild dried lemon. Taste is weaker, minerally, very light bodied. Papery, void palate.

TheAlum (6027) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Draft on tap at Cigar City Tap Room (Tampa, FL). Pours a nice darker blackish brown hue, good darker body. Near opaque, some ruby brown edges and bottom. A frothy light brown head atop dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are oak chips and cocoa, gentle toffee, irish soda bread dryness, gentle spirit gives a kiss of whiskey, vanilla, gentle roast. Touches of creamy body meet some gentle roast, toast, and darker black malts. Gentle roasted barley. Nice. Initial is medium bodied, a bit lighter showing some gentle roastiness, ash, and nutty earth. Some sweeter middle shows some cream, coffee, gentle oatmeal sweetness, bit of body, silky creamy body works well for me. Irish soda bread, nice dryness typical of an Irish Stout hits in the middle and flows into the backend. Some oak, roast, and earth hit as we finish up. Earthy, a touch roasty and ashy, faint spirit. Nose made me think this would be a bit intense, but this is really nice.

Draft at CCB during hunahpu day 2013 with Andrew, Maggi and Geoff. Pours a deep black body with no head. Aroma is whiskey, chocolate and light roast. Mouthfeel is medium with similar notes in the flavor. Pretty straightforward, but I thought it worked.

On nitro at CCB. Pours a hazy dry stout brown with a tan head. Nose is chocolate, roasted malt, earth, wood, and whiskey. Flavor is similar- whiskey presence is pronounced with earthy and dry roast all over. Medium in body with lots of oak, earth, and whiskey in the finish.

The aroma is dry and whiskey like with coffee and wood. The appearance is dark with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall a good beer.
