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.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 26, 2013
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 (230) - 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.

DiarmaidBHK (3161) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Draft at trailhead. Pours black with a thin khaki head. Nice chocolate notes on the nose. It leaves a bit of la one on the glass. A bit malty on the tongue. Finishes clean. Very solid.

Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 24, 2012
Originally reviewed: 4/15/09. Came out a deep dark black with very thin tan sheet on top. Some spots and globs stuck to the glass edge. Smelled of roasted malts, chocolate, grape, raisin, and slight alcohol. Mouthfeel was crisp and slightly chewy. Flavor was of roasted cocoa beans, espresso, and dark breads. Finished almost like a wine. This was a decent brew. I would get this again. A very easy drinker even at the ABV level.

Beautiful pour with a thick head and black-as-night body. Aroma is faint, taste is of burnt dark sugars and coffee. Light mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pour from the tap with an expected darkness topped by a creamy, sticky brown head. The aroma is a very understated dry roastiness that is pleasant but not remarkable. The flavor is much more amplified, with a strong, earthy combination of hops and a coffee-like bitterness from the roasted grains, and only a little sweetness to balance. The fine, prickly carbonation is neither enticing nor unpleasant. Overall, this is certainly a nice, robustly-flavored stout that I would gladly have in my glass many more times.
