Dark brown pour with burgandy highlights. Notes of coffee, smoke, and roast in the nose. Flavor has a little lactic sourness and a somewhat cloying palate. Not bad though

Tap at Brewgrass. Nearly black pour with lovely tan head. Roasty notes on the nose; coffee and creamy chocolate; malty. Some hop presence, but not a ton. A little thin on the palate, but immensely drinkable.

timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 10, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 14, 2008 Had this one on draft at Barley’s in Asheville. Roasted flavors, coffee, chocolate, cocoa, molasses. Just a little hop character. Thick, filling, good drinkable stout. Sought out a growler to bring home.

Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2008
From draught sample at French Broad. Smoky coffee, chocolate, and wood. Bit of vanilla and light grassy hops and ... sesame oil? Odd aroma for Irish stout but nice. dark black and oily with thin tan head. Heavy body with smooth carbonation. Starts with a bit of soy sauce and smoke, molasses, chocolate, coffee, and rich malty mash. Tangy sour character with a bit of hop bitterness. Finishes smooth with chocolate and molasses. Nice stout.

Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - APR 29, 2008
pours a black with thin tan head. initial creamy milky mouthfeel. good sessionable quality to a dark stout. Dry finish behind the milky body, good grab, and good stuff.

Suttree (5132) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2008
Black, thin tan head. Smells coffee and chocolate, but more coffee than chocolate. Flavor is also coffee and burnttoast - lots of roasty notes. Dry, crisp finish. Nice session stout! WBF Raleigh.
