On tap in Sioux Falls, SD actually. Respectable stout here that is cheaper due to me using the Granite City Mug Club.

Pours a deep brown with amber notes and a creamy lacing tan head. Aroma of light roast and chocolate. Flavor of chocolate, roasted malts and caramel. Smooth but a bit thin.

An okay looking stout, but really there was not much flavour here. Watered down. Cheap.

Looks good in the glass - deep brown or black with a finely foamy head that coats the glass. A lot of roasted coffee in the aroma and the taste. Pretty thin and average stout.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark red brown color with a thick off white head. There is a light nose displaying hints of coffee and oats. The palate comes across as slightly creamy with notes of milk chocolate and coffee. An OK stout.

Very feint chocolate scents and a small roast. Taste is a tad of chocolate and a bitter coffee roast, light body.

Very thick and creamy tan head. Black. Roasty. Slight chocolate. If the beer tasted like the foam it would be amazing.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft in a sampler at Granite City-Creve Coeur. Pours a very attractive, deep, opaque brown with a cascading creamy tan head that settles into a nice lasting cap. The aroma is roasty, with notes of chocolate, coffee, and some sugars. The flavor has dark chocolate, coffee, toasted sugar, and some bitter earthiness. The body seems initially full but quits quickly, if that makes sense. Bitter and gritty without having much substance. Moderate carbonation. Could be better.
