UPDATED: APR 21, 2011 This beer has seen its up and downs over the past year. The current incarnation is discussed here. Dark pour with tan lacing head. Nose is roast with coffee and grainy notes. Refreshing dry bitterness in the mouth.

On tap at RIBCO, pours black with a thin tan head, really roasty aroma with a little bit of chocolate and cocoa too, the front end has a lot milk chocolate and a finish of roast, nice mouthfeel too, not bad.

Tap. Dark pour with tan head. Smells of chocolate and coffee. More coffee comes through on the taste. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

novels (424) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2013
Decent stout with a very savory presence, unsweet and dry cocoa on the tongue. Has a hint of spice- almost a black pepper presence, and slight carbonation with a decent gravity to back this baby up. Would drink again, but not particularly worth seeking out.

A hoppy and roasty stout which I like but it comes off as a bit too one-dimensional.
