12oz bottle from Spirits Lakewood. Poured a flat pitch black with a smaller beige foamy head. Aroma is the best part of this beer, roasty, dark melted chocolate, soy sauce, dark fruit skins. Sadly the body is super flat and lifeless with a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor of roasty malts, dark toast, old coffee, dark choclate. Needs a better body and carbonation and this is a good beer.

Bottle at Chris and Ruths house after GBBF 2016, Thursday. Black beer with a decent beige head. Roasted malty aroma, caramel, some licorice. Malty licorice flavor, chocolate, some dark bread. Decent but thin and more like a schwarzbier.

Finally in bottle after 23yrs. Perfect dry stout. One of only a few nitro in bottle stouts. Follow directions on the label for the perfect pour!

Bottle thanks to Seth. Pours black with small beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is dark chocolate, roast, wood. Thin body, cocoa, brownie, roast, dry finish.

Bottle shared by someone at Mile, pours black with smaller head. Notes are pretty dry and roasty: chocolate, burnt coffee, wood, and ash. Medium bodied. Ok

A perfect stout. Really well balanced dark malts for a nice roasted chocolate goodness with a touch of espresso. On nitro tap it goes down like silk.

Sampled a bit of this at the brew pub. Decent. True to style. Dry dominated by roasted dark and crystal malt. Would try again.
