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.

This is my favorite beer at Empire Brewing Company. Tan frothy head. I couldn’t smell much but maybe I had a cold. it’s an opaque black pour. Its creamy and thicker. Smokey flavor thats alittle overpowering with a hint of chocolate, possibly coffee. Very smooth brew.

A proper rich stout. I had it out on the patio and it kept me warm. It has more of an alcohol taste than other locally made stouts, I find, but it isn’t over-powering. Perfect creaminess that goes down easy. Highly recommended!

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2004 This is a wonderful dry stout. Reminds me of a blacker murpheys as there is plenty of root/plant taste. Finishes a tad watery, but hey, so does guinness.

Draft. Pours a dark black body with nice brown creamy head. Aroma is creamy milk chocolate, spicy tobacco, light coffee roast, and milk. Mouthfeel is incredibly smooth and creamy with notes of smoke, coffee, chocolate, milk, and tobacco.

Nitro at Empire. Pours a nice black body with a decent nitro head.- good lace. Aroma is good fresh roasted barely light bittersweet chocolate- floral and lightly minty green hops, toast and light burnt notes- good. Flavor is nice fresh chocolate with hints of coffee, light roasty bitterness and pretty smooth overall. Nice dry stout.

Part of a sampler at brewpub. I found all the brews to be better than average though I don’t remember specifics for most of them. It is worth mentioning that the sampler here is very generous with glasses that are big enough to really give you enough to form an opinion. I found this stout to be one of the best out of the samples.
