On tap @ PreFunk BOI. Nice roasty aroma, despite being nitro. Jet black color with a thick dense head, beautiful tan. Flavor is delicious, roast perfectly matched with bitterness. Nice aftertaste. Creamy mouthfeel (nitro). Overall, a great nitro stout!

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours black with a tan head. Mild chocolate aroma. Flavor is a bit like milky chocolate with some earthiness that’s likely coffee. Not dry, but makes me think it wants to be. Not bitter. Dark malt. Chocolate. Coffee notes. Smooth and delicious. Doesn’t work well with pretzels, but otherwise very nice.

raphael (1153) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 5, 2016
On tap at Skyline Tavern, on nitro. Mute aromas--coffee, molasses, vinegar. flavor has a nice tang--roast malt, brown sugar, distant wood. Light on the palate which is bad--stouts don’t have to be thick. But it is a stout, just a little better than average.

This beer was this trips’ pleasant surprise. Fantastic all around. Robust flavor and aroma - expertly balanced roast and coffee, chocolate, very light char and caramel. Lightly sweet and bitter. LOVE it.
