Draft at GC Rockford. Pours dark black with a small bit of dark head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Taste if medium bitter. Lots of coffee and some dark bitter chocolate. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Soft carbonation and a long finish. Overall, pretty good. The only GC beer I’d bring home a growler of.

Wichita location: Was OK - very typical of a standard brewpub nitro stout. Creamy to the point of watery. What did stand out was a smooth hint of smoke near the finish. So yea, it had a little more character than some nitro stouts. Brown black with a firm creamy nitro head.

Very drinkable, lots of rich creamy texture, with some dark malt chocolate and caramel, with some chicory notes, and a light bit of roasted coffee acidity. Pretty dry and bitter in the finish, a solid stout.

Like a Guinness, but with a little funkiness. Not sure what it is. Maybe should be on nitro.
