On tap at Henry's. Pours almost black and dense tan cap. Chunky lacing. Aroma of coffee beans, chocolate. Taste is bitter, and a bit of sweet. Loooooong dry finish. Creamy.

Nitro at sb. Pours jet black with a dark tan creamy head. Big dry roasty malt nose. Chalky medium body. Dry, roasty mid palate with a long and insanely dry finish.

Nitro tap. Aroma is a little underwhelming. Chocolate and roasty tones. Body is typical nitro. A little watery upfront but chocolate and rich roasty malt notes really come through. A little bit of hop bite. Right in the stout sweet spot. Enough alcohol and body to give it a rich flavor but not an annoying high powered soy mess of an imperial stout.

crackedmachine (469) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Pours black with a nice, creamy tan head that sticks around for a bit. Aroma is moderately sweet chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is roasty upfront, with underlying coffee and chocolate, with a slightly bitter finish. For the ABV, this goes down deceptively easy. This is an excellent stout.

Very solid offering. Smooth chocolate having a little cocoa quality. Nice roasted character with moderate medium roasted coffee beans. Silky with a rich woody component on the back end. Nice.

Nitro at Crux. Sheets of nitro lacing on a black pour. Rich, savory aroma with tar and black crayon. Taste is woody, dry, bitter, mild ash/soil, black crayon. Palate is clean, rich, nicely bitter. Honestly, of the 14 beers I tried at Crux today; this was the best one because it was the only one that was dry with a hoppy balance. Every other beer of theirs was way too sweet to the point that some beers were named "Sweet Pale Ale". -___-

Black creamy tan head. Smell roasted coffee. Taste smooth creamy chocolate and coffee. Lighter to medium bodied and very drinkable. Great.

Nitro tap @ 15th Ave. Hophouse... Poured jet black with a big brown head. This had lots of roast and a considerable amount of sweetness along with dense coffee and mocha notes. Even some green hop bitterness for balance and depth too. Great drinking nitro stout.

Black pour with thick beige head. Meets the hundred watt test. Too restrained aroma, some caramel and nut, maybe served a little too cold. Lekker roasty flavour with coffee, caramel and hop notes. A hop note in the finish.
