Tap @ fire works Leesburg - pours black with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate malt. Dusty dry on the tongue without a ton of bitterness. Overall, true to style, though a bit subdued to me.

Draft at fireworks Leesburg. Pours black with a half inch khaki foam. Leaves a lot of lacing. Solid malt notes on the nose. Dry and dusty on the tongue. The roasted malt really comes through. Finished clean. Nice example of style.

Draft at DoG Street Pub last night. Black pour with a short, frothy, creamy tan head. Nose is roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is bigger chocolate and coffee notes, slightly sweeter than a draft Guinness with roasted malt, lighter bitter hops and burnt caramel notes. Body is medium with a dense creamy carbonation. Ends with more dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, burnt caramel and toasted dark bread notes. Tasty!

7/18/2014. On tap at the brewery. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Malty aromas with coffee and chocolate. Nitro stout with almost no carbonation and my favorite of the beers I tasted while visiting.

Cybercat (3800) - Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Pours a warm sable with a thick and fine-bubbled tan head that leaves generous lacing. Aroma has a core of roast malt that supports chocolate, molasses and quality coffee notes. Flavor echoes all of the aroma’s notes, adding a smoky tone. Texture seems a bit thin for a stout, but has good fizz.

strongpieman (1579) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Draft at restaurant. Perfect tall head from a nitro pour. Dry lighter stout but for style excellent taste and balance. Very good

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Serving: Draft at MacDowell Brew Kitchen. It pours black with a light tan head. Subdued aroma (thanks to the nitro). Light roasted notes. The flavor has a slight earthy, roasted malt note with a solid bakers chocolate coming through. Nice dry finish. Very solid for the style.

jackl (5404) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Nitro @ Devil’s Backbone. The pour’s deep brown with a thick khaki head. The nose is toasted malts. Sharp cocoa. Mellow chocolate syrup. The taste is roasted malt, more cocoa. Mild hoppy bitterness. Dry finish. Nice, well-rounded stuff. Medium body, quite smooth. Overall, a really nice effort.

Served on nitro. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, and subtle black earth. Brown-black with a fully lasting, satiny, khaki head. Dry and roasty. Light, refreshing, smooth, clean, and with lingering roasty flavors.
