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.

Pours a dark black with a tan foam head. Has a roasty and chocolate aroma. Flavor is sweet chocolate, roasted malts, and even a little nutty taste. Towards the bottom of the pint glass there was a dirt/grass flavor that was unfortunate. Has a watery body feel. Otherwise not too bad.

Tried at Granite City Brewery in Kansas City. Part of a flight. Found all of the beers to be watered down and mediocre at best.

NIIIIIICE Brew. Dark with a tan foamy head. Roasty chocolatey coffee taste. I would definitely drink this again. I wish Rapid City had a Granite City so I wouldn’t have to be in Sioux Falls to go there.

UPDATED: MAR 9, 2009 Draft at Madison. Dark brown, creamy beige head, probably served on nitro. Aroma is not as muted as in some other nitro stouts, some nice roast malts going on. Flavor is roasted malts, some smoke and chocolate on the tail. Smooth, but somewhat thin bodied. A passable Guinness clone.

Tap at Maple Grove. Pours a creamy opaque black with a very creamy off-white head which lingers and leaves good lacing. Rather weak aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Flavor is a bit thin with roasted malts, chocolate, caramel, and very dry. Body is quite creamy almost fluffy. Decent.

TAP. This beer is a bit more watery that Guinness. It tastes of oats and chocolate, and slightly of burnt wood. Smooth mouthfeel from the nitro.

Server said "this one is like Guiness". well he was mostly right, cause this wasnt very good. Very thin, not much to speak of for malt flavor. It was creamy but awfully blah. GC is not the place to go for good beer.

Looks good. Nitro tap with a cramy head. Lasts the whole beer with some lacing. VERY thin beer. Nice roasty flavor. Something very off in the finish. Tastes off, almost like dirty socks,

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Thick creamy light brown head, dark brown in color, faint coffee aroma with a slight coffee/chocolate flavor. Thin, watery mouthfeel and not much of a finish. Not bad for someone getting into stouts but doesn’t stand up to the better ones.
