Draft at S.D. location. Black color with an average fizzy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate roasted coffee and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a dry creamy texture. Medium roasted sweet flavor with a sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a good drinkable brew and went well with the Asian food I had.

Dogbrick (8658) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Sample from a growler at the Super Terrific Stout Tasting on Feb 16th. Pours nearly black with a thin light brown head that disappears quickly. Minimal lacing is evident. Mild roasted coffee and malt in the nose. Medium, slick body with roasted coffee, malt and chocolate flavors. The finish is fairly thin for a Stout and has a coffee aftertaste plus a hint of hops. Below average overall.

Nitro pour at GTMW. Poured deep brown with a tall, creamy beige head. The aroma picked up sweet, toasty chocolate and nutty notes accented by a hint of lactose. The flavor found sweet chocolate and toasted black patent maltage at the core.. vanilla and light coffee bitterness surrounded and complemented well.. good moderate level of roast. Medium-bodied and creamy on the palate, especially due to the nitro pour.. nicely toasted and balanced.. candy-like.
