Draft - A smooth and easy drinking stout, with a creamy mouthfeel, and a nice balance of roast, intense bitterness, bittersweet chocolate, and smooth vanilla flavors - creamy texture - overall a very enjoyable stout, but I would not pay the bomber price for it.

Black pour with a dissipating light beige head. Aroma notes of roasted peanuts and subtle coffee along with a dark grain roastiness and a wee hit of molasses. The flavor is a bit sweeter with a nice caramel tone, with some smoky roastiness and nutty malt undertones. Medium-light body brings the complexity down a bit, however it’s semi-sweet and dark chocolaty and deliciously drinkable.

Tap @ the brewery tap room. Pours a very dark, reddish beer with a small, beige creamy head on top. Aroma has big coffee, caramel and vanilla. Flavour has the coffee returning big time, backed up by a big molasses influence. Vanilla kicks in at the very end. Very nice brew, long dry finish.

I drank this from a bottle. Nice nice color, weak head, although with a little more aggressive pour cascaded nicely. Goes down easy, light flavor for a stout, not bitter, not sweet, chocolate yes, marshmallow? I wish. Bet it would be good on tap. Worth a drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the Denver location. Pour is deep brown, almost black, with a light red tint and frothy tan head; great lacing. Roasty, chocolatey, sweet vanilla, graham crackers, caramelly, earthy, toasted aroma. Taste is cocoa, vanilla, almost woody, coffee, earthy hops, and grassy with a roasted bitter finish. Medium body with soft carbonation. Pretty good beer and very reminiscent of a foreign stout.
