On tap at Manteo. Probably the best of the four from my sampler (that’s not saying a whole lot). Dark pour with no head. Roast on the nose. A coffee bomb with a hard alcohol burn. Some mild chocolate and lactic notes. Decent

a seriously solid stout. Not for the faint of heart but all the qualities a stout should have are there in abundance. dark, rich, big mouthfeel, sweet, hoppy, balanced- really good. only drawback is the 11% alcohol means it’s more of a sipper.

Tap. Almost black pour with a small tan head. Nice roasted aroma with hints of chocolate and coffee. Flavors of roast, chocolate, coffee, light anise and a hint of earthy hops. Similar and somewhat bitter finish with a slight alcohol note.

Serving: Draft at the brewpub. It pours a pitch black color with a small, tan head. There seem to be some slight flaws with this one. It get nice anise and roasted notes, but the majority is a lingering plastic note that clings to the tongue. Medium to full body. Pretty ho hum.
