500ml bottle pours black in color with a finger and a half of light brown head that leaves some pretty decent lacing behind. Aroma is roasted grains and chocolate. Taste is roasted grain bitterness with a chocolate malty sweetness. Very well balanced beer with a medium body and moderate carbonation. Great brew which I recommend others to sample.

pinte de stout prise au bar. arome de café avec notes de chocolat. au gout elle est peu effervessante mais le gout de café ressort de même qu’une amertume bien équilibrée avec un petit gout sucré

Thanks to my sister-in-law for bringing this back. Deep black pour with a thick dark brown head. Great looking pint. The nose is lovely - rich dark chocolate and light molasses. A bit of smoke and a savoury sort of character. Bitter-sweet cocoa and some nice lingering roast. Medium-full bodied. Really lovely stout.

Extremely roasty aroma, good strong coffee notes. Appearance is black with a well-formed head, really dark and rocky. Taste is good, dry and bitter. Not overwhelming but a good finish. Feel is medium, sort of doesn’t fill out to the aroma.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 Aroma is one of beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes

500ml bottle. Effectively black pour with a small, chocolate brown head. Leaves some lacing but that fades and leaves kind of an oil slick. Aroma is roast coffee and caramel. Not a very strong smell, but good. Taste is very roasty, with the coffee bitterness covering most of the sweetness. Body is thinner than I’d like, but fuller than a lot of poorer stouts so it doesn’t sit too heavy and watery. Overall, better than I was expecting.

On tap at brewpub, pours a dark black with a small brown head a d very little lace. Smell is sweet coffee and roasted malts. Taste is coffee with roasted chocolate as it gets some sweetness. Very little carbonation. Overall great taste and smell but body is too thin.

Draft at the brewpub. Served in a large stemmed glass. Pours an opaque brown color with a small tan head. Aroma of faint smoke, roasted malts, molasses, and tobacco. Flavor of burnt toast, smoked beef, coffee, dark chocolate, and tobacco. Medium-bodied, with a dry, roasty mouthfeel and mellow carbonation. Surprisingly robust roastiness to the point of near-smokiness. Quite easily my favorite beer at The Gahan House. Nice stout.
