Cask draught. Pours a near black color with a moderate tan head. Nose has some amazing cocoa notes to it, with some roasting and chocolate coming through in the taste. Super smooth.

It pours black, lively carbonation and a dark brown head. There area aromas of roasted malts, chocoalte, and a bit of wood. The roasted malt flavors are dominate which gives it a smokey quality to it. There is a bit of chocolate with a bit of wood as well. It has a moderately bitter finish.

22 oz bottle poured an opaque, black body. FLAVOR: Average intensity for style. Ample dark roasted malts with minimal smokiness and moderate. Some light burnt toast in the aftertaste. Lightly bitter. Good balance. Feel: full, creamy smpoth body; light carbonation.

Reviewed from notes. Thanks to Rick for bringing this one back from your NC trip. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. Light lacing stuck and then slid. The smell had a graceful blend of roasty to sweet coffee to dark chocolate with a light robust milk chocolate insisting upon my nose. The taste was mainly roasty and robust sweet chocolate and coffee. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a semi - sessionable quality about it. The carbonation was appropriately styled and was good for me. Overall, Rick please go back and get more of this stellar beer.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 Pours a thick black on tap with thin tan head and good lacing. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts, taste follows with a clean, smooth finish. Pretty good.

Beer 53 Asheville trip, sadly, the last brew of the trip. Poured black. Aroma chocolate and espresso. Flavor was a match, roasty and chocolatey. Medium bodied. Just a very enjoyable stout. Good way to wrap things up. Great roadie with the spouse. Got to do this again sometime in the future, still have a ton of places to visit down this way that we didn’t have time or liver to accomplish on this trip.

Sikash (240) - North Carolina, USA - DEC 21, 2012
Poured from a tap into a pint glass. Pours a nice dark color with minimal tan head that leaves great lacing. Aroma is initially of chocolate and roasted malt. Flavor is initially bitter with a mild sweetness with flavors of the malt and chocolate. Finish is a dry bitterness that lasts a while. Mouthfeel is full with solid carbonation. Overall a solid stout.
