Draft at the source. Near black body with a thin, lasting beige ring atop. Aromas is pretty weak. Chocolate with some bready notes. Light bodied, even thin, with soft carbonation. Could use a few tweaks.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sample tray at Scottsdale location. Opaque, black, hints of brown at the edges. Fine lingering beige head. Nitrogenated? No aroma. Tastes watered down, sweet fruit, a bit of roasty malt. Rotten apples, burnt coffee. Thin. Very disappointing. Highly overrated on this site or the location waters down the draft. Either way, stout lovers should skip it.

Pours a finger and half of head on a black body.
The aroma is mild roast.
The taste is slightly sweet overall with mild roasty flavor.
The texture is smooth with low carbonation.
It’s great looking and feeling with average flavor.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 5/14/13 on draft at the brewpub. Pours nearly black deep brown with a thick, smooth tan head, almost looks like a nitro pour, that slowly recedes to thick, even lace. The nose is nicely roasted, some nibs, dark chocolate, and just a touch of coffee. The flavor has just a touch of dark chocolate syrup sweetness up front, moving to all of the expected roasted dark chocolate, nib, and coffee bitterness. The body is full and creamy with just under average carbonation and a long roasted bitter coffee finish.

Draft. Nitro like head. Black. Light. Watery. Mild roasty. Light chocolate. Tasty and Drinkable but not exactly ’memorable’. Good but simple I guess.

Tap at airport restaurant. The look is dark, garnet highlights, thick creamy tan nitro head. The smell is malty, burnt, roast, raisins, dark fruit, creamy, and decent. The taste is much the same, creamy and thick. A little plain.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Didn’t say it was on Nitro, but the carbonation on this was very fine and flat like a nitro beer. Head was good as was the chocolate aroma. Body was dry with light roasted flavors. Chocolate didn’t come back until the finish. It was the mouthfeel that put me off on this one.
